We will present industry issues associated with typical building waterproofing systems, for roofs, walls, plaza decks, and below-grade components.  For each of these building systems, we will highlight topics to consider during the design and construction processes.

At the end of this presentation, participants should be able to...

  • Understand building code insulation requirements for roofing systems and how they affect the design for reroofing projects.
  • Identify common sources of water leakage from walls and fenestrations and understand various repair strategies.
