This course is designed to increase your knowledge of moisture management and continuous insulation technologies in wall assemblies as applied to multi-family building construction. The course will cover drainable wrap technologies, continuous insulation options, proper flashing options, industry standards, and a case study related to multi-family wall assembly performance.

Learning Objectives

  • Examine the importance of designing for both moisture management and continuous insulation in wall assemblies for superior wall systems.
  • Explain the technology behind commercial drainable wrap and how it can help achieve durability in facades and wall assemblies.
  • Describe the importance of designing proper flashing for the roof-to-wall interface, particularly in multi-family construction.
  • Describe how drainable wrap improved the performance in a multi-family case study.
