On-Demand: Avoiding Costly Problems With Your Building Envelope

Assessing and Restoring Complex Building Envelope Systems

Building envelopes are complex systems that keep the indoor and outdoor environments separate—by controlling the transfer of moisture, energy, and air. And their performance is affected by so many variables, from weather to faulty construction to age. Without proper attention, building envelopes fail and require costly repairs to protect the building and its occupants.

Learn how to reduce your risk with practical advice on building, inspecting, and restoring building envelopes for efficient energy performance, safe indoor environments, and preservation of building materials for years to come.

Our experts bring their unique perspectives to provide an overview of innovations in the industry, relevant standards and regulations, what investigators and building consultants look for during assessments and testing, and the critical steps for ensuring your building envelope performs well for as long as possible (and what to do when it doesn't).

 

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How to assemble your team and create an action plan quickly
  • Current trends in building envelope materials and construction
  • Primary causes of failure and non-performance
  • Assessing building envelope conditions and damage
  • An essential checklist for making the correct building envelope maintenance and restore decisions

Leave with practical advice to stay on top of materials and trends, properly assess building envelope condition and performance, and plan for maintenance, conservation, or future renovations.
