February 19th Chapter Meeting

Why Did The Waterproofing Fail?
This seminar focuses on installation methods and waterproofing systems that comply with industry guidelines and prevent failures. You will examine moisture/vapor transmission and crack isolation, as well as ancillary design elements that contribute to the success of your waterproofing detail. The real world examples presented are timely, practical, and enable you to effectively implement the knowledge gained.

Learning Objectives
1. Identify the causes of waterproofing failures and what you can do to prevent them.
2. Hear about recent trends and examine new industry standards that will influence the way you design and specify waterproofing and crack isolation for ceramic tile & natural stone.
3. See how a “systems” approach to waterproofing and design elements allow for creativity and ensure reliability.
