• Flashing for Windows

    1 LU AIA

    Flashing is a water-resistant sheet material that bridges and seals the gap between the window or door frame members to the adjacent construction. You could say that flashing’s mission is to manage water intrusion by providing a mechanism to drain it to the outside of the building envelope. Flashing may be one of the most under-rated building envelope components, yet arguably it is one of the most important. This course will look at the importance of flashing for windows, while also listing the different types of flashing along with the proper installation methods. This program is registered for 1 AIA CEH. Take the course.
