What:
In this workshop we look at window installations that are airtight and correctly flashed – and as a result will last the life of the building. A proper window install will bump up your building’s comfort and efficiency, while ensuring that your walls stay dry. With both presentation and hands-on mock-ups, the workshop aims to provide tools for simple and effective high performance window installations.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize characteristics and benefits of high performance windows as a part of an optimized building envelope
  2. Identify material specifications and details for rough opening preparation and flashing in super-insulated and airtight assemblies
  3. Apply concepts of water protection and airtightness for window installations in a variety of climate zones and situations.
  4. Describe the importance of vapor drive and moisture management as a component of high performance building.
