  • As interest in cross-laminated timber (CLT) buildings grows, the market for building enclosure products as a whole has yet to fully provide the water-resistant barriers, vapor retarders, and air barriers to optimally support the unique characteristics of wood. Furthermore, there are few building enclosure design guides specific to detailing wood-framed walls and roofs. This comprehensive course fills the gaps, providing detailed information on mass timber, building enclosure issues, the vapor-permeable technology available to address wood’s unique moisture characteristics, and a how-to guide on detailing the walls and roof of the enclosure.

  • Building envelope failure allows air and moisture infiltration that damages building materials, reduces energy efficiency, and creates unhealthy conditions for building occupants. This course reviews how to enhance building sustainability by designing for net zero energy use and explores how rainscreen systems and roof underlayments contribute to building performance. Approaches to enhancing the energy efficiency of existing buildings are also discussed, including how air and moisture control improvements can be made in historic preservation projects.

  • Some roof underlayments can trap moisture, degrade insulation performance, and create excessive condensation accumulation. Breathable, self-adhering roof underlayments enhance the drying capacity of the roofing assembly and therefore improve roofing performance. This course investigates current developments in these easy-to-install, vapor-permeable roof underlayments that mitigate water intrusion, reduce long-term exposure to wetted substrates, and extend the life of the overall structure. The course concludes with several sample installations.
