Roofs: Wind, Cracks & Condensation
Summer storms are here... you don't want to miss this webinar and the chance to get a refresher and/or new information for yourself and your team!
When a roof covering is hanging off the edge of a building, you don't need a rocket scientist to tell you it has been damaged by wind. But what about a roof that is still in place but has a few holes and funny looking "humps"? Is it wind damaged and, perhaps more importantly, how extensive is the wind damage?
Roofs are also vulnerable to condensation anytime there is warm, moist interior air rising up through a building and comes into contact with a cold roof assembly. Extreme temperature changes in Colorado can create condensation problems where there had not been problems before.
In this webinar you will learn:
- Types of roof wind damage (direct and indirect).
- Tell-tell signs of not-so-obvious wind damage.
- When are cracks roofing related
- Common causes of roofing related cracks
- Wind calculations
- Condensation terminology and background
- Physical evidence of condensation and what can you do about it
- Related Building Codes, Factory Mutual, ANSI/SPRI and design requirements
Webinar participants will gain an in-depth understanding of wind and condensation damage and their effects on major types of steep-slope and low-slope roofing systems.
Don't miss the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge for you and your business! This promises to be an interesting look at some annoying problems that distract you from the main purpose of keeping people dry!
