AEC Daily: You Are Punching Holes in My WRB: Preventing Water Infiltration through Cladding Attachment Penetrations

ONGOING - FREE - 1 HOUR

Penetrations of the WRB are unavoidable, but it is critical to ensure that they remain watertight. The recommendations for sealing these penetrations are often based on unrelated test methods, such as those for nail penetrations in roofing membranes, or on anecdotal evidence. This course covers a data-driven method used to determine which type of flashing and sealing solution is best to ensure watertightness after cladding attachments are installed over polyisocyanurate insulating sheathing. Also discussed is information on how other single-layer insulating sheathing systems allow for watertightness of the assembly after cladding attachment.
