In this course, you will learn that designing a roofing system for long-term performance requires long-term thinking about the details incorporated in a metal roof system. This presentation provides information regarding proper design to prevent possible infiltration from the roof system into the building. It also works as a guide when designing a roof to allow for proper water runoff.
Learning objectives include:
- Requirements needed when designing details incorporated into a metal roof system.
- Being exposed to both correct and incorrect details and conditions that are best avoided when possible,
- Learning how roof penetrations should be specified and installed to provide long term weathertightness.
- Learning about dissimilar metals and how they affect a roof’s service life.
