This course will identify the importance of detailing continuity in maintaining the integrity of the four control layers of the building enclosure. We will then explore some different methods for identifying the areas where continuity can be disrupted and the solutions for maintaining a control layer continuity in these areas.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain the four primary, code based control layers that make up a building enclosure system.
  • Define the primary issues related to continuity of building enclosure control layers in wood-framed wall and roof assemblies.
  • Review the common choices for products and materials for building enclosure control layers, including critical transitional areas.
  • Compare different drawing details and solutions for their use in wood-framed wall and roof assemblies.
