Wednesday, August 7, 2013; 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern

The single largest issue in masonry wall design is the compatibility of various products that must work together to achieve the desired results. This can include air barrier systems, thru-wall flashings, and reinforcement/anchoring systems. Chris Bupp will discuss the importance of sourcing materials as well as designating a single contractor to ensure compatibility of all building processes.

Learning objectives:
1) Cover air/vapor barrier basics
2) Discuss applications: fluid applied vs. sheet applied products, permeable vs. non-permeable
3) Discuss using anchoring systems successfully with air & vapor barriers, and their compatibility of various flashing materials
4) Limiting mold problems with moisture management systems
