Mission:

The Building Enclosure Council (BEC) is a network of affiliated architects, engineers, contractors, manufacturers and others located in major cities across the United States. The Dallas BEC was formed to address durability, design and the unique air, moisture and thermal performance challenges of building enclosures in Texas.

Program:

This presentation will focus on Peel & Stick membranes for above/below grade waterproofing, window/door flashing, air/vapor barriers, roof underlayments and air infiltration prevention. Specific topics will be:

  • Sources of Moisture/Vapor Transmission
  • Failures from Moisture/Vapor Transmission
  • Types of Membranes and Their Differences
  • Solutions for Sealing the Building Envelope

Upon completion, the attendee will be more aware of negative results associated with lack of proper protection against moisture intrusion. The information will provide a better understanding of material selections available for weatherproofing and waterproofing including material parameters of various adhesives, compatibility with other building products and other considerations such as UV resistance to assist with specifying the right materials for the application.
