Roof Technology and Science I

This two-day course is a first component of a two-part series covering, in detail, aspects of the technology and science of roofing. It covers the history and evolution of roofing up to present-day common applications. It features terminology and technical information regarding roof decks and structures, roof insulation, bitumen membranes, built-up and modified bitumen membranes and flashing systems. An understanding of heat transfer theory, moisture, thermal design, and the calculation of U-factors will also be presented.

Highlights of the program include: critical aspects of roof decking and related supporting structures, heat transfer and practical heat transfer calculations, the function of heat transfer and the different types of roof insulation, the technology behind roofing bitumens and their related BUR and modified-bitumen membranes, and basic flashing nomenclature and bituminous flashing system construction.

The Roof Technology and Science I course features fundamental concepts that prove useful for students in other RCI Educational Programs. Roof consultants, facility managers, contractors, architects, engineers, roofing material salespeople, property managers and others can gain new insight and professional development in the continually evolving world of roofing technology.

Cold Weather Roofing Challenges presented by John Pohorsky, GAF

Discuss the pros and cons of various low slope and steep slope roofing challenges in cold weather.  Many manufacturers have provided roofing contractors with products and installation methods for extreme installation conditions to extend the roofing "window".  This program will discuss both the pros of extending the window and the cons.  It is important to note there are tradeoffs and to educate the building owner prior to proceeding with a roof installation so there are no unexpected surprises upon completion.  Many projects which are scheduled for summer or favorable weather installations are delayed and the installation may be pushed until cold winter weather conditions.  The roofing contractor and/ or specifier/ consultant should provide the building owner with both the pros and cons of adapting to these weather conditions.
