2020 TRAINING DATES:
Oct 5-6, 2020
Nov 9-10, 2020
when the membrane stops: expansion joint covers and edge metal solutions
- Identify roofing accessories and how they can affect the longevity and durability of your roof system.
- Describe the different expansion joint types and what is best for your roof system.
- Discuss differential building movement and how to correctly compensate.
- Explain the importance of edge metal systems: what works, what doesn’t and how to tell the difference.
Use It or Lose It—Re-roof or Re-cover of Existing Roof Systems
- Evaluate an existing roof to determine long-term solutions: re-cover, replacement or coating.
- Explain the effects a re-cover or replacement decision will have on your existing system.
- Explain requirements to meet building code and manufacturers’ requirements.
- Compare different membrane and insulation product types for advantages and disadvantages.
ROOF INSULATION AND COVER BOARDS
- Gain a better understanding of both high-density and low-density roofing insulation.
- Review thermal resistance design along with dew point calculation.
- Complete a comparative analysis of all primary low-slope roofing insulations and coverboards.
- Describe tapered insulation and system design.
How Multi-ply Membrane Systems Give Your Roof Extra Protection
- Review the history of modified bituminous roofing membranes, including how and why they came to be, focusing on market conditions and raw material availability and performance.
- Explain the four SBS system application methods and two APP system application methods and how a facilities location, project timeframe and site conditions could impact which method best fits your project.
- Gain an understanding of the physical performance of these roofing membranes, what drives that performance and the various choices available that differentiate the available products in the roofing system family.
- Match project design criteria, membrane options, application options and long-term performance to provide multiple solution offerings to your building owners and communicate the differences between these good, better or best type offerings.
Low-Slope Roofing Insulation and Cover Boards
- Explain the different design considerations around the selection of your roof insulation and the thickness requirements associated with your project location.
- Review the attachment methods and options for both your roof insulation and cover boards.
- Determine the primary uses of cover boards in a roofing system and the various performance considerations with different membranes.
- Examine the changes in performance requirements, and how the selection of the proper cover board can extend the life of the roof.
