Deck and flat roof waterproofing is an integral element essential for building envelope protection with the popular residential outdoor living design trends.
As leaders in the niche industry of PVC membrane waterproofing, Duradek is an active participant in educational events that focus on this critical element of building envelope integrity.
The British Columbia Building Envelope Council (BCBEC) event, the CCBST 2017: 15th Canadian Conference On Building Science & Technology brings together the country’s top experts in Building Science and Building Envelope fields.
From lessons learned about the building envelope through past experiences, thought-provoking discussions, and a knowledge exchange that stretches industry-wide, Canadian Building Science experts invest in a future where building practices ultimately provide the best protection for long-term, reliable waterproof protection.
The 15th Canadian Conference on Building Science and Technology (CCBST) takes place from November 6th to 8th, 2017.
The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver with registration and breakfast from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. before a full day of presentations. During this time, there’s opportunity to visit the exhibiting sponsors who are all important contributors to the building envelope community.
Duradek and the Building Envelope
Duradek’s regional sales manager, Winston Conyers, will be taking part in the CCBST Conference to discuss deck and flat roof waterproofing and the role they play in building envelope protection.
Duradek has been a leader in the specialty trade of vinyl deck waterproofing and was the first vinyl manufacturer to achieve building code approval as a roofing membrane. Duradek’s proven installation techniques ensure that the waterproof membrane is incorporated into the building envelope as well as other common points of vulnerability like posts and pony walls.
With installation being a major factor in the success of PVC membrane waterproofing, Duradek is only available as an installed product through Authorized Duradek Contractors that have been trained in techniques specific to roof waterproofing.
Planning for Waterproofing Success
Duradek is committed to assisting architects and engineers with everything they need to specify Duradek on their deck and flat roof projects.
In addition, Duradek offers a free online AIA CES registered course on AEC Daily – Walkable PVC Roof Deck Membranes.
Waterproofing the Building Envelope
Duradek, the original walkable waterproofing membrane system has a team of professionals that know the importance of reliable waterproofing solutions cannot be underestimated. In addition to manufacturing a reliable product that meets or exceeds building code requirements as both a pedestrian traffic surface and a classified roofing membrane, Duradek acknowledges that deck waterproofing is a specialty trade.
The Duradek system is installed exclusively by trained and authorized applicators who understand how deck waterproofing details play a critical role in protecting the entire building envelope.
Conferences like CCBST speak to the dedication of building envelope professionals to avoid occurrences of the past, such as the ‘leaky condo crisis’ we had in Vancouver. At least 72,000 strata units were compromised by moisture permeating the building envelope. By discussing issues in the field and exchanging best practices, building envelope professionals can dodge premature building envelope failure caused by problems like poor waterproofing techniques.
