  • This presentation will bring knowledge of roof system design considerations when dealing with cold storage applications. The presenter will discuss various types of cold storage application techniques and provide insight on the importance of understanding internal climate zones and how they may impact design considerations for the roof system assembly. The presenter will discuss considerations for vapor barrier placement based on internal operation conditions as well as selection of insulation requirements. Focus on various insulation types, R value recommendations, and attachment options will also be discussed. The presenter will then discuss various types of single ply membranes as well as attachment options and considerations. The final and most critical segment will focus on detail considerations of the thermal envelope transitions. This will include wall to roof, roof to wall, internal climate transitions as well as roof penetrations. The presentation will end with a Q&A session and key takeaway points.

  • The goal of tapered roof insulation systems is to reduce or eliminate the amount of ponding/standing water on the finished membrane when the roof deck does not provide adequate slope. Draining the water in a timely and efficient manner minimizes the adverse effects that ponding/standing water can have on completed roof membranes. A properly designed tapered roof insulation system, not only provides the positive drainage needed but also helps extend the life of the roof membrane, and provides thermal value as well thus reducing the heating and cooling expenses of the building owner.

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.

  • This presentation discusses how a designer should select a roof assembly that meets the building code by focusing on materials, roof assemblies, and workmanship. With these steps followed, we can then overlay the assembly with the warranty coverage as listed in master specification. It must be understood, roof warranties are viewed as relative life expectancy of the roof system. Unfortunately, most often the warranty coverage is not based on the offered duration, so the roof assembly could potentially have little relationship to sustainability. The purpose of this presentation is to educate specifiers on how warranties can be phrased. Highlighted will be warranty language taken from different unnamed manufacturer’s warranties, to offer examples for guidance on what to watch for. With this information, the specifier can guide the building owner away from focusing on warranties and more on building code certification, quality materials, proper assemblies, and verifiable workmanship

  • 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 one-hour session will cover options on how to go beyond a manufacturers specification to incorporate durable products and roofing assemblies. A review of membranes, insulations, cover boards, and insulation attachments will all be considered. In addition, time will be spent discussing energy performance of the roof assembly and materials, a review of energy analysis comparing different roof assemblies and various color membranes associated to geographic locations, and the potential impact on the building performance.

  • With all the outside forces affecting building construction, such as the International Code Council, economic changes, and Green Standards, to name a few, it is no wonder that some decking material has conflicted with interfacing of the roofing assemblies. Though these materials are permitted by the building code, the weakness of the material to hold a fastener or adhesive for roofing jeopardizes the expected performance of the roofing assembly. To avoid concerns about long-term performance, it is important to understand the types of decking materials, there limitations, and how to improve architectural specification wording to meet code and long-term performance.

  • 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, and constructed to ensure a long lasting, energy efficient building.
