This presentation reviews a variety of building types to discuss the continuity of detailing required to manage moisture, air, vapor, and thermal performance, as well as wind resistance requirements at the critical wall-to-roof interface. To begin, this presentation will review the building science fundamentals of moisture management and energy efficiency. Then, we will discuss the impact of these critical details to whole building performance and provide guidelines to follow when designing and specifying to ensure both design and code requirements are met. Project and assembly specific details will be used to highlight the importance for construction trade sequencing. Quality control and operational maintenance will be covered as ways to ensure long-term performance of the building enclosure.
1. Discuss the requirements to manage moisture, air, vapor and thermal continuity.
2. Recognize the changing building and energy codes and how interface details impact meeting the requirements.
3. Explain how to design interface details to ensure they will meet air, water and thermal control requirements on both current and future project designs.
4. Determine design and specification requirements to set performance
requirements for wall systems.
