  • This session will take a close look at the durations offered on roof warranties to provide a better understanding of what is actually being covered by the membrane manufacturer. The presentation will include a discussion which will focus on selecting the correct roofing materials associated with the desired warranty duration. The session will also explain the importance of what is actually being covered under warranty, and ways in which the duration of warranty coverage can be misleading. In addition, examples of terminology commonly used within warranties will be dissected to show how language can be used to protect the membrane manufacturer. Information will be provided to assist the designer and building owner in identifying and selecting key terms that should be included in the warranty to ensure they are getting the best warranty possible.

  • Building envelope systems and continuous air barriers have gained prevalence in the marketplace with inclusion into building and energy codes over the last decade. This presentation aims to bring awareness of code requirements as they relate to building envelop components and systems, and shed light on common material misconceptions. Additionally, this presentation will focus on the all-important tie-in junctions which have been known to cause confusion resulting in leaky buildings and system failure. We will discuss tie-in design considerations, know product incompatibilities, as well as tie-in installation best practices.

  • In the industry there is a need to sort out the confusion between the building codes, uplift rated assemblies, and warranties by explaining what each offers and how they should be considered. To understand the building code, we need to review how uplift is determined and the industry accepted rating method of roofing assemblies for comparison. After understanding the code criteria, how a roofing warranty wind speed coverage is regarded by the industry and building code will be reviewed to assist in clarification.

  • The building envelope consists of all exterior components of a building –roof, walls, below-grade waterproofing, windows, skylights, and so on. When looking at these components it is important that each one be taken into consideration to prevent moisture or air from migrating into the building. The envelope is a complicated and integral part of any high performance building. However, it is often the most neglected portion. This presentation aims to educate the participants on the importance of the building envelope and how the individual components contained within the system must be designed, constructed, and maintained to ensure a long lasting, energy efficient building.

  • PVC is one of the most diverse products in the building industry and one of the most misunderstood. This presentation will help to better understand why PVC is one of the most versatile and modifiable thermoplastics. With all the different formulations, types, reinforcements and construction, knowledge of this product type will assist the specifier in creating better specifications.

  • Over the past several years, the building envelope concept has been well promoted and established as a means for energy efficiency and building performance. With the vast product offering available today comes confusion and misinformation. Building designers are often left guessing about product compatibility and proper design, leading to the potential of costly failures. The focus of this presentation is to dive deeper, beyond the concept, and into proper building envelope design. The presentation aims to educated attendees on proper product selection and performance characteristics, codes and testing, and proper tie-in detailing to ensure a continuous air seal.

  • In this program the participants will learn the physical performance advantages of fleece membranes that enable them to resist the forces of mother nature such as wind, hail, rain, and cold. In addition they will learn the performance advantages of urethane adhesives that eliminate the dependence on solvents with VOCs or asphalt derived from foreign sources of oil. Several re-roofing advantages afforded by fleece membranes will be covered where you can re-use existing roofing systems and minimize landfill waste. Multiple-ply membrane options utilizing highly reflective TPO or extremely weatherable EPDM as the cap sheet will also be covered.

  • TPO roofing membrane has now been part of the roofing industry for 20 years and has become the leading segment as far as total volume used on an annual basis. With almost 10 billion square feet installed around the world, TPO has proven that it is an effective roofing material providing building owners with a low-cost, highly reflective, energy efficient roof system. Participants will learn the advantages of TPO roofing membrane versus other materials and how the use of new technology has allowed TPO to become even more resistant to a wide range of rooftop conditions. There is a reason for the astronomical growth of this roofing membrane and the presenters will shed light on the reasons why.
