The Education Committee has embarked on an initiative to provide members with easy access to resources in and outside of NWiR for technical education. Topics will include areas such as metal roofing and metal edging, asphaltic systems and products, single-ply materials, fluid applied roofing, etc. Stay tuned to the NWiR blog and newsletter for monthly updates with upcoming topics.

The theme for the month of August is All Things Fluid Resilience in Roof Design. We are highlighting educational information offered in the All Things Fluid Resilience in Roof Design segment of our roofing industry. When we move to the next month with new topics, you’ll still be able to see this content in the content resource library. The titles below are linked to the source.

Polymeric Liquid-Applied Membranes (PMMA/PMA) for Roofing & Waterproofing

Ensuring a building’s roof is waterproof, on top of being structurally sound, is critical to the success of any building project. This course examines rapid curing, polymeric liquid-applied waterproofing membranes for roofing and other demanding applications. Discussions include the history of PMMA, PMMA system components and characteristics, the installation process, and the versatility of PMMA products.

FLUID APPLIED METAL ROOFING SYSTEMS

Learn about the benefits of installing Fluid Applied Metal Roofing Systems. Coatings provide a cost effective alternative to replacing your metal roof. ENERGY STAR® approved product can reduce your roof’s temperature by up to 100°F and comes with a 10 year warranty.  New Roofs with As little as Zero Pitch?  A monolithic Fluid Applied Roofing Membrane can be applied.

With the mainstream usage of the Cold Fluid Applied, Liquid Resin Roofing & Waterproofing Membranes; it is necessary to obtain the technical knowledge used to provide QC inspections. Course will provide attendees of basic “what to look for” information, some science related to the information and corrective course of actions that may be possible.

  • Learning Objective 1: Understand the recommended application procedures for these types of liquid resin systems. Including several different resin and reinforcement types typically seen in the U.S. market.
  • Learning Objective 2: Identify typical application deficiencies including substrate preparation, primer application, membrane application and surfacing.
  • Learning Objective 3: Develop solutions for typical problems encountered in the field and provide recommendations on how to address these problems promptly before they become large scale issues.
  • Learning Objective 4: Show project specific case studies to support the common sense solutions for application deficiencies.

We hope you enjoyed All Things Fluid Resilience in Roof Design!
