THE BIG DISCONNECT: THE IMPORTANCE OF WALL TO ROOF CONNECTIONS FOR THE AIR BARRIER
Roy F. Schauffele, FCSI, CCPR, FABAA, CABS
ABAA Certified Air Barrier Specialist, Certification #007007
Regional Advocate for the Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA)
Past Chairman and Current Executive Committee Member
Founder of Division 7 Solutions Inc., a Division 7 Materials Consulting Firm

Connecting the wall air barrier assembly to other building systems needs to be completely understood in order to design and construct a functioning building enclosure. One of the most often problematic areas is the connection between the wall air barrier and roof assembly. With a myriad of roof systems, wall configurations, and the growing number of wall air barrier products, it can be difficult to navigate which systems work best and the chemical compatibility of these systems. This presentation will focus on ensuring a robust connection is constructed and executed.

THROUGH-WALL FLASHINGS COMPATIBILITY, SUSTAINABILITY & PERFORMANCE
Craig Wetmore, CSI, CDT
ABAA Board Member; Co-Chair of ABAA Marketing Committee; Executive Committee Secretary of ABAA; President of York Flashings

With all the myriad of building enclosure components and materials, there is a significant risk to ensure that all materials are compatible and work together as a system. An important part of a water control strategy for your walls requires integration of the air barrier, water resistive barrier, insulation and other related components, including through-wall flashing. Not all assemblies work together and there are specific steps needed to ensure proper water drainage. This presentation will provide an overview of all flashing choices that can be selected and specified and provide information on how to make product selections and what materials are not compatible in a system. Real life examples of various systems and transitions will provide attendees with an understanding of the successful construction of these components.

OH NO! WHAT DID I MISS? HOW TO PROPERLY SPECIFY AN AIR BARRIER
Laverne Dalgleish, Executive Director of the Air Barrier Association of America

Design and Construction documents are one of the first steps towards achieving an effective layer of airtightness to manage moisture and air movement. The importance of a proper specification cannot be understated, and a well-articulated document will ensure that the owner is provided with materials, performance and quality.

The presentation will review some of the consideration and language that should be reviewed prior to developing a specification and will outline code requirements, performance requirements, what can be done for quality and ensuring material selection meets the intent of design and for crucial coordination with other components of the enclosure.
