Understanding heat, air, and moisture control

Many designers and specifiers understand controlling air, vapor, and thermal transfer helps mitigate moisture problems within the building envelope. Moisture accumulation is a performance adversary that can lead to structural deterioration, finish damage, organic growth, and reduced building longevity.

Fluid-applied thermal break coatings 101

Architects designing with concrete balconies, cantilevered beams, roof penetrations, parapets, canopies, spandrel glass, and other ornamental architectural features are often limited in executing these design elements because they can create thermal bridges that extend beyond the insulation systems within the building envelope.

The future of roofing insulation

When it comes to insulating a facility, insulation addresses two important goals—maintaining a consistent interior temperature and preventing moisture from forming and collecting via condensation. There are several different materials and ways to protect a roof, including fiberglass, rigid board, and insulated metal panels (IMPs).
