Weather barriers are a must with exterior foam sheathing

There are several issues with the use of foam sheathing as a water resistive barrier (WRB) and air barrier - even though there are standards that if passed allow it to qualify as a WRB. Issues such as dimensional instability and poor water management that are intrinsic with foam products can be remedied by using a wrap product as the water resistive barrier and to provide continuity at air barrier details.

Vapor Permeable Or Impermeable Building Envelope Materials, Does It Matter?

What are the potential consequences of unintentional vapor barriers? Why is vapor permeance of building envelope layers relevant to moisture management and long term durability? Durability of the building enclosure is part of a sustainable building design. A designer can significantly affect the service life of multi-component assemblies through materials selection, placement of materials within the building assemblies, or design detailing. Find out what it all means.

A Complete Envelope Solution with Insulated Metal Panels (Print Course)

Insulated metal panel systems (IMPs) are a pre-manufactured version of a “perfect wall” due to the location of their control layers. They are a truly universal wall and roof system that can be used in any climate zone, can be used as a rainscreen barrier wall system, and can be integrated with other wall and roof systems while still maintaining proper control layer continuity.

This course will cover the function of the four control layers and how insulated metal panels provide all four control layers in a single component, and will describe the advantages of insulated metal panels compared to alternative building systems. Finally, the course will discuss how insulated metal panel systems can be used with supplementary cavity insulation and examine design options for aesthetics.
