Fundamentals of Functional Flashing

The vast majority of construction defect litigation is over failures of water management. As we construct lower and lower energy buildings, we’re reducing their physical ability to withstand a little “whoopsy” with your water barriers. We’ll go through the fundamentals and the physics in presentation format, then share hands-on demonstrations of old and new methods that really work. You’re guaranteed to learn something that can be applied to your projects immediately.
