  • Understand the basics of standing seam metal roof and wall systems. Identify grade vs. gauge and their importance for standing seam metal roofs and walls. Discuss oil canning and why it is prevalent with some metals but not others. Describe how to achieve greatest energy efficiency with metal roofs and walls. Describe storage, handling, onsite vs. controlled environment manufacturing, and how to obtain the right warranty for the product and application.

  • In a perfect world, the architect designs a building, and the contractor builds it, accurately and on time, with all the skilled labor necessary. In the real world, the supply of skilled construction labor ebbs and flows. Today it has ebbed. The scarcity of skilled labor drives up costs and drives down quality as crews rush from project to project in a quickening market. Through this course you will review the decline of skilled building labor in the U.S., learn the history and benefits of factory-made building components, the consequences of roofing failures, how roofing membranes are fabricated and installed and finally explore case studies of custom-fabricated roof systems.

  • Understanding the new standards for safety, sustainability and well-being through an overview of the NSF/ANSI 347 will provide the basis for specification and adherence. Codes have changed, relative to Low Slope design and Edge Standards to comply with those codes. Additionally, system design now allows the specifier and their clients to merge low slope and steep slope roof assemblies through one source. Compatibility of those systems is critical to performance, workmanship, and warranty. All of the key elements for total system design that will perform and meet the new code standards offer the design professional greater control of their intended design and its performance. Finally, knowing the importance of the materials used to manufacture steel, comparing Galvanized to Galvalume along with the Grade of the steel provides design professionals with a clear knowledge of strength of steel versus the perception that thickness is more important. The thickness of single ply membranes clarifies that not all single ply membranes are equal and thicker is not always better.

  • Industry groups and government agencies continue to define objectives for cool and sustainable roofing. These actions, combined with economic factors, are creating demand for a new class of high performance roofing systems (HPRs). Understanding the five key elements of HPRs can help specifiers, designers and building owners make an informed choice that meets high performance building guidelines.

  • Participants will learn the energy benefits and values associated with an IMP (Insulated Metal Panel). They will learn how to reduce the carbon footprint, contribute to the ongoing LEED initiative and understand the various applications associated with IMP panels. These include Wall, Roof and Ceilings. Their use applies to new construction and retrofit construction.

  • The trend toward greater resilience in roof design has come into sharp focus in recent years. The forces driving this trend include the decline in skilled labor among roofing contractors and allied trades; changes in the building code that have been influenced by severe weather patterns; and the increasing application of sustainable and “green" technologies. The urgency of this trend has challenged both design and construction professionals to find both human and technological solutions in a dynamic work environment. This presentation will explore how the trend toward greater roof resilience has effected the application and performance of roofing systems over time. It will also discuss ways to meet the changing demands.
