High Performance Walls and Exterior Insulation

Instructor: Justin Wilson, Construction Instruction

This course is presented by

This course will outline the ever increasing challenges presented to the industry from increased air tightness and R-values of wall assemblies, to making a connection to material and design choices, to creating high performance walls that lead to improved water and airflow performance. We will examine key connection points – foundation to wall and wall to attic. Justin will also look at new and existing insulation techniques to safely increase the thermal effectiveness of wall assemblies and identify the increased importance of key air and weather barrier details to maintain long-term durability.
