Home protection from severe weather showcased at LaHouse
The daylong event's educational sessions covered subjects ranging from how to properly frame a wall to the benefits of using weather-resistant barriers, such as Grace Ice and Water Shield and Tri-flex 30 roofing underlayments.
LaHouse LIVE was part of the Hurricane-Resistant Construction Project, an ongoing multi-media educational initiative led by Building Media Inc. The real-time initiative shares best building practices, code updates and other building science-related information with builders and remodelers of single-family homes in the hurricane-affected areas of the Gulf and Atlantic coastal states.
LaHouse is an LSU AgCenter project that is designed to showcase solutions for Louisiana's unique climate and conditions. The educational center exhibits a range of ways to have greater comfort, quality, durability, property value and better health, with less energy, water, waste, pollution and damage from storms.
