Liberty Building Forensics Group is hosting a webinar on air barriers and building mold and moisture failures, February 22 1:15 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. EST. 

This webinar will be presented by Liberty Building Forensics Group experts Donald B. Snell, PE, CMC; and Charles Allen, Jr., AIA.

The webinar will:

  •  Use case studies to show exactly how air barrier failures can occur and how to avoid those failures.

  • Present the air barrier building codes and standards that are most confusing and discuss how to use them to benefit your next project.

  • Outline a practical way to mitigate catastrophic mold and moisture problems from air barrier failures on your next project.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Understand through the use of case studies the hidden risks of mold and moisture damage from poor air barrier design and installation.
  2. Learn the differences between water barriers, vapor retarders, air barriers, and thermal barriers in a building envelope and understand how to determine their performance in order to avoid water/moisture intrusion and mold problems.
  3. Identify how the HVAC system design could be the cause of your air barrier failure and how it might be contributing to moisture and mold problems.
  4. Know how to analyze multiple building codes and use them to prevent air barrier-related mold and moisture building failures.
