IIBEC Canadian Prairies Chapter: Basic Wall Systems and Their Moisture Control Mechanisms
Basic Wall Systems and their Moisture Control Mechanisms
IIBEC – Canadian Prairies is hosting a Lunch ‘n Learn talk on “Basic Wall Systems and their Moisture Control Mechanisms”.
Join us for an online talk, Water getting into the wrong places is a significant issue with our building enclosures. In order to understand how to prevent water from getting into the wrong places in our walls, we must first understand how a wall controls moisture. Through this presentation, we will discuss the basic wall systems, including Face Sealed Systems, Drained/Screened Systems and Mass Systems and how they control moisture.
This talk is being presented by Marla Snoddon, P. Eng. and Johnathon Bain, P. Eng. This Lunch ‘n Learn is good for 1 CEH.
