HEW 505 Code Compliant Exterior Systems for Wood Framed Building Envelopes

This course investigates the most recent code changes emphasizing buidling 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.

Learning Objectives

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

This month's meeting is free of charge for CEUs!

Lunch generously provided by Dixie Plywood.
