Dive into a comprehensive two-day live course that is the first component of a two-part series covering, in detail, aspects of the technology and science of roofing. Roof Technology and Science I covers the history and evolution of roofing up to present-day common applications. It features terminology and technical information regarding roof decks and structures, roof insulation, bitumen membranes, built-up and modified bitumen membranes and flashing systems. An understanding of heat transfer theory, moisture, thermal design, and the calculation of U-factors will also be presented.
Highlights of the program include: critical aspects of roof decking and related supporting structures, heat transfer and practical heat transfer calculations, the function of heat transfer and the different types of roof insulation, the technology behind roofing bitumens and their related BUR and modified-bitumen membranes, and basic flashing nomenclature and bituminous flashing system construction.
The Roof Technology and Science I course features fundamental concepts that prove useful for students in other IIBEC Educational Programs. Roof consultants, facility managers, contractors, architects, engineers, roofing material salespeople, property managers and others can gain new insight and professional development in the continually evolving world of roofing technology.
