 Directions

 

Learn about high-performance commercial wall panel systems as applied to custom residential projects from a custom residential design-builder. Tour a custom house that is clad in this type of energy efficient panel system, which provides both an elegant, virtually maintenance-free façade and the functionality of a superior rainscreen system. Learn about how selecting the right materials and construction systems can support an elegant modern aesthetic while saving time and money through a streamlined construction process.

Learning objectives
By attending this tour of a recently-completed custom modern house, attendees will:

• Understand the benefits of using a taped wall panel and roof system together with truss joist floors and roof to speed up the installation process and create a durable structure that will resist moisture-borne damage.
• Understand the role of open cell foam insulation and the benefits of using a Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) cool roof as part of this system.
• Understand the advantages of using rain screen technology in a residential project.
• Discuss the role of window choice and installation specifications to ensure that they are integrated properly into an energy-efficient structure.
