This short video explains why it should also be the go to for all your projects.
AdvanTech X-FactorÂ® subflooring panels are the latest innovation from the subflooring brand builders have trusted for more than 20 years for the start to a quiet, stiff floor. With an integrated, fade-resistant, water-shedding surface, AdvanTech X-FactorÂ® elevates the moisture-resistance expected from subflooring panels. Answered here, some of our most frequently asked questions.
Few building materials have been used for centuries and offer the strength and versatility of concrete. Waterproofing concrete is critical for a functional, reputable and long-lasting structure.
This educational unit will identify the consequences of non-waterproofed concrete. In addition, the course will explore how traditional waterproofing methods are used to protect concrete. Finally, the course will examine integral crystalline waterproofing methods, as well as some case study applications.
This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. Thermal bridging has been recognized as a significant factor in building envelope heat loss and yet traditional construction practices have not effectively addressed many of the causes. Building Better with Thermal Breaks will identify areas most susceptible to thermal bridging and offer solutions that will minimize those heat loss conditions. Designing structural thermal breaks into buildings will improve the comfort, safety, durability, and reduce the environmental impact.
This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. This course investigates the most recent code changes emphasizing building envelope performance. We will explore next generation integrated solutions that simultaneously provide protection against moisture penetration, air leakage, and thermal bridging. Installation benefits and on-site quality control issues related to multi-solution integrated systems will also be evaluated in this course.
Detailing the Building Enclosure Interfaces â€“ Identifying Areas of Concern Throughout the Construction Process
Webinar On-Demand:Â This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. Do you see â€śby othersâ€ť on your project details?Â Too often that translates into â€śwho is responsibleâ€ť and â€śhow should it be done.â€ť With this confusion, it is not surprising to hear that building enclosure failure generally occurs within three percent of the total enclosure.Â Enclosure repair and replacement in North America remains a multi-billion dollar expenditure.Â The majority of the problems are moisture related.Â They are caused either by air leakage or exterior moisture penetration because of lack of proper terminations and transitions.Â This presentation will address construction concerns throughout the project related to moisture intrusion at these critical connections.
PVC wall cladding is a superior option for interior surfaces in a wide variety of applications, including healthcare, hospitality, commercial and public facilities, and more. Itâ€™s a lightweight, customizable, sustainable solution that outperforms other cladding options. This course will explore different types of interior wall cladding and explain the benefits of PVC, including an active antimicrobial panel system. Learners will also explore specific applications for interior PVC cladding and review installation best practices to ensure a successful project.
Webinar On-Demand: This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. This course will summarize how to properly design critical building envelope control layers to protect against the air, water, vapor, and thermal loads to optimize energy efficiency. It also covers traditional multi-component backup wall assemblies and the challenges to achieve energy efficiency, installation, and long term performance. Learners will explore how to design with insulated panel wall systems achieve higher energy performance, faster build speed, and long term resilience. Finally the course covers how insulated metal panel wall systems provide extensive design flexibility while integrating with virtually any noncombustible rainscreen material.
Architects and building professionals will be tasked with specifying siding for home construction and renovation. Homeowners will rely on the professionals to help guide the decision-making process. This course will enable learners to gain insight into the advantages and disadvantages of various siding options available on the market.
In addition, the course will examine the four Dâ€™s of exterior wall design and the impact each have on safeguarding the structure for occupants. Next, the course will look at how engineered wood siding provides an option for specifiers that enhances the built environment for occupants while being durable and aesthetically pleasing. Finally, the course will explore the basic principles of sustainability, the use of renewable resources, and the benefits of using engineered wood siding products.
Architects are called on to design to increasingly stringent standards for performance, safety, sustainability, and now occupant wellness. The stakes are even higher in a post-pandemic environment that demands even higher performance from building materials. This course will discuss 100% waterproof, sanitary solid polymer ceiling and wall panels products that can withstand the demands of high-traffic environments such as hospitals and schools. We will cover the challenges these applications face and performance measures such as impact, abrasion, and stain resistance that ceiling and wall panels must meet.
