UPCOMING JUNE WEBINARS:

Exploring Concrete Roof Deck Moisture Issues

When: June 1st

Time: 2pm est

Earn: 1 LU/AIA credit

Description: During recent years we have seen a climb in moisture-related issues involving concrete roof decks. Experts are starting to see a trend in issues coming from roofs that seem to be properly installed, maintained, and not exhibiting any leakage. However, due to numerous reasons like changes in system build-ups, accelerated construction schedules, an increase in using light-weight structural concrete, and year-round construction in all climates, we are seeing these issues more frequently. This course will explore key issues and potential remedial approaches in different problematic situations and provide preventative measures.

Learning Objectives

To obtain a better understanding of the following topics: 

  • Review past and present construction practices where the roof deck is structural concrete, with the emphasis on the effects of excess water in the roof system.
  • Point out the difference between normal and lightweight structural concrete, as well as their different curing and drying times.
  • Discuss different techniques with new construction and re-roofing. Which technique should be used when installing a roof system over a concrete deck?
  • Study the standard test methods available to determine the amount of moisture that may be present in the concrete.
