Walls & Ceilings will host its debut Webinar on January 26. Titled “Continuous Insulation: Plaster & The Energy Code,” the Webinar will be presented by Bryan Stanley of the Technical Services Information Bureau and Frank Nunes of the International Institute of Lath & Plaster. The event will be moderated by the magazine’s Editor John Wyatt.
The Webinar will discuss how energy codes are changing the way exterior walls are built regardless of the cladding system. Presently, there are two ways to build energy efficient plaster/stucco walls: the “performance” method that takes into account factors in a specific building that will achieve an overall energy efficiency rating; the other, more simplified “prescriptive” method is to incorporate a layer of exterior continuous insulation behind the plaster assembly.
This 45-minute presentation will cover:
- Why plaster needs to be energy efficient
- Why the changes to codes need to be changed
- Types of “CI” plaster assemblies
- How to make “CI Stucco” work and more.
