DESCRIPTION
Window-opening air and water leakage has been a dif-
ficult problem for the construction industry. This course
evaluates building failures, conventional construction
approaches, and new developments in waterproofing
techniques to show a path forward for designers seek-
ing higher-performing wall assemblies.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
1. Explain why job-site conditions should be used as
systems engineering requirements in construction
product development.
2. Compare and contrast the similarities and differ-
ences between silicone, urethane, and STPE seal-
ants.
3. Describe the multi-step weatherproofing process
of conventional window installation and how such
installations fare in real-world testing conditions.
4. Explain new window weatherproofing techniques
using liquid flashing membranes.
5. Instruct others on construction defect remedia-
tion using STPE technology through case-study
examples.
