Roofing & Waterproofing Forensics for the 21st Century
This seminar will discuss state-of-the-art currently available forensic techniques for evaluating the integrity of roofing and waterproofing materials. The pros and cons of various moisture-detecting and integrity inspection technologies will be reviewed, including infrared thermography, nuclear interferometry and high and low-voltage vector mapping. This seminar will be useful to roofing and waterproofing contractors, consultants, specifiers, architects, engineers, building owners and facility and property managers.
- Describe the technologies and applications of the forensic testing methodologies used to evaluate the integrity of roofing and waterproofing materials.
- Explain the advantages, uses, and limitations of infrared and nuclear moisture surveys, flood testing, and high and low-voltage electronic leak detection.
- Correlate the results of forensic testing methodologies to the performance of roofing and waterproofing materials, installation practices, and system design.
- Incorporate insights gained from roofing and waterproofing forensics in the design, construction, monitoring, and maintenance of roofing and waterproofing assemblies.
