The Importance of Wall to Roof Connections for the Air Barrier
June 2, 2020 | 2 PM EDT
*BNP Media is authorized by the IACET to offer 0.1 CEU for this program
Free Webinar
When it comes to connecting wall air barrier assemblies to other building assemblies, the most often missed or poorly executed detail is the connection between the wall air barrier and roof assembly.

This presentationwill focus on the following items to consider from a design standpoint, along with practical approaches to ensuring a robust connection is constructed and executed.
  1. Describe why the roof/wall air barrier intersection is critical to building performance in regards to moisture management and air leakage control and common design and field errors.
  2. Discuss compatibility issues related to wall and roof air barrier components for the myriad of air barrier and roofing assemblies that exist on the market today.
  3. Identify pre-construction coordination items to review and allocation of responsibilities to sub-trades for proper execution of connection.
  4. Review requirements for detailing the roof/wall interface and the sequence of construction for most common roof/wall air barrier connections.

Because energy performance requirements for buildings are continuing to evolve and become more strict, complaint owners and designers need to have a firm grasp of the code requirements in order to make strategic choices when balancing their budget, scope, and energy needs.

In this presentation, we'll review the following learning objectives as they relate to energy-efficient strategies in building enclosures:

Learning Objectives:
  1. Identify the current code requirements related to energy performance of buildings.
  2. Strategize how to best meet the intent of the code based on site-specific conditions.
  3. Review the roles that roof, wall, and window systems serve in energy performance.
  4. Realize how building energy simulations and cost-benefit analyses can help decision-making.
