Speakers and Topics

12 Ways to Re-cover an Existing Sloped Roof with Metal

Tuesday, October 20 | 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM EDT

This course will explore how to use a structural standing seam system in re-cover applications on an existing building with a sloped roof. The course will cover 12 ways to do a metal-over-metal re-cover, how to put metal over single-ply or modified bitumen roofs, as well as metal-over-shingle applications. We will cover the advantages and pit falls in each application, when it is best to just do a tear off, and the sustainable attributes of leaving the existing roof in place.

Smith has the unique ability to problem solve, turning napkin sketches into viable metal roofing solutions. His efforts have made him one of the industry’s foremost authorities on re-cover systems utilizing metal roofing. He holds several patents in the re-cover field including both metal-over-metal and metal-over-shingle solutions. Smith also co-wrote the IIBEC (RCI) Metal Roofing course and in 2018 was honored to be given the Outstanding Educator Award at the RCI Convention in Houston.




Existing Masonry Facade Repair & Restoration

Wednesday, October 21 | 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM EDT

This presentation will include an overview of historical masonry wall assemblies and its evolution from mass, to transitional, to cladding systems. It is important to understand the differences and how these wall systems function. Focus will be given to understanding the rationale and methodology for condition assessment and providing insight into common types of deterioration and material characteristics. Understanding the material properties, the type of construction, and its vulnerabilities will help in developing appropriate repair and restoration solutions. Prioritizing repairs, such as protecting horizontal surfaces, integrating new flashings, and repairing steel elements allows for solving the root cause of damage or water infiltration. General appropriate masonry repair and replacement options will be discussed for several types of masonry such as brick, terra cotta, stone, cast stone, and their associated mortars. Craftworkers who are trained and educated in masonry restoration are assets to project teams and play a significant role in successful historical masonry projects.

The Ins and Outs of Reroofing

Thursday, October 22 | 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM EDT

Reroofing of existing buildings—both replacement and re-covering—is roughly 75 percent of the roofing industry. To that end, understanding how to determine whether a building requires a roof replacement or re-cover is key to a successful reroofing project. Reroofing-specific code requirements, investigation methods, and analysis of decks and insulation will be discussed, as well as the necessary aspects of wind resistance and energy efficiency upgrades (insulation, air barriers). In addition, the presentation will provide information to assist with the design and installation of flashing details given existing conditions.
