For years, the question of waterproofing from the inside has dogged Peter. He kept hearing about all sorts of coatings that could “negative-side” waterproof, but didn’t know how to compare the anecdotes to building science. In this session, Peter cuts through the hype and the misdirection of standardized testing and figures out what works, what doesn’t and why. Check it out to see what stands up to the Wingnut Water Test!
As a result of this recorded session, you will be able to:
- Discuss the difference between positive and negative side waterproofing.
- Explain alternatives to negative-side waterproofing coatings.
- Describe Wingnut testing and contribute to development of better testing methods.
- Discuss the potential shortcomings of both negative-side waterproofing approaches and testing standards.
Who should watch?
Builders, remodelers, HVAC contractors, HVAC system designers, code officials, architects, home design professionals, building performance professionals, energy auditors, students, educators, apprentices and anyone with knowledge and interest in waterproofing homes.
