  • Selecting The Appropriate Roofing Adhesive For Flat-Roof Applications Course

    1 LU AIA

    Flat roof construction has unique challenges and durability issues associated with water; selecting an adhesive system that will complement the roof structure is important. This course will give provide an overview of roof construction common in commercial buildings, and offer a specific examination of multi-layer roof applications typical of flat-roof construction. Explore productivity and material costs issues related to flat roof construction and successfully choose the most appropriate adhesive for flat roof construction by comparing and contrasting a specific set of attributes related to durability, strength, healthfulness, cost, and ease of use that can greatly impact the performance of the roofing system. This program is registered with AIA for 1 CEH. Take the course.

  • Sustainable Green Building with Clay and Concrete Roof Tile

    1 LU HSW/SD/CMP

    This course is registered with AIA for 1 HSW/SD hour and with GBCI for 1 CMP hour. Starting with the history and basics of clay and concrete tile, learners will be able to understand how they contribute towards sustainable building design. Modern manufacturing uses computer modeling to help minimize the use of raw materials – creating more effective and efficient systems. Raw materials for clay and concrete tile are abundant across the U.S., helping to reduce the carbon footprint of the finished product. This course looks at the advantages of using clay and concrete roof tiles to increase the efficiency of a building. Take the course.

  • Design Considerations for Low-Slope Roofs

    1.0 LU HSW

    Design Considerations for Low-Slope Roofs was developed to help architects and designers better understand single-ply thermoplastic roofing materials. Participants will learn the history of thermoplastic membranes, a comparison study of the thermoplastic membranes in relationship to membrane polymer thickness, the importance of having a certain amount of polymer thickness above the reinforcement scrim, water absorption, linear dimension change, and UL fire testing. The presentation also discusses the energy-saving benefits of a white thermoplastic membrane when compared to a traditional black roofing system. Take the course.
