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.

Learning Objectives

  • Delineate the latest code and design standards for wood framed exterior wall assemblies.
  • Assess the various product approaches to meet air barrier and water-resistive barriers (WRBs) available today.
  • Analyze the differences between multi-product solutions and single product solutions for wood framed building envelopes.
  • Articulate the benefits of continuous insulation added to exterior sheathing.

Pre-Requisite: Basic knowledge of building code regulations.
