VALLEY FORGE, Pa. – An industry leader in building science, CertainTeed Corporation has provided valuable expertise over the years to architects, designers, engineers, and contractors through private consultation and presentations at trade shows and other industry events. Now, the company has enhanced its website with a new CertainTeed Building Science sitelet that provides information, educational tools, technical resources and animations of heat, air and moisture flow within buildings.

This precedent-setting resource is available on the CertainTeed website at www.certainteed.com/buildingscience and was developed specifically for building and design professionals interested in building forensics and building physics.

The Building Science sitelet provides building and design solutions that are based in science, including problem diagnosis, integrated solutions and best practices. While the concepts presented are intended for an audience of building and design professionals, they are offered in a manner that is understandable to all visitors. Building science topics covered on the site include: Acoustics, Fire Performance, Indoor Environmental Quality, Moisture Management, Sustainability, and Energy Efficiency. Visitors to the site can access frequently asked questions, videos and literature on specific topics, as well as practical building and design strategies.

“As the demand for sustainable construction continues to grow, it’s critical to understand how building products and systems interact with each other in a way that can have unintended consequences for the performance and durability of the building,” said Stan Gatland, manager of building science technology at CertainTeed. “Our new CertainTeed Building Science sitelet provides that type of information to the building and design community, as well as those who occupy the homes and buildings. With this resource, CertainTeed is doing its part to drive the industry toward the most sustainable building practices.”

Over time, CertainTeed will continue to add more building science information to the site, including white papers published by its Building Science team members, as well as other valuable building science content.
