October 30, 2013 |

In this AIA/CES-approved presentation, 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.
