Installing a solar roof system on your building should be a decision that rewards you with energy savings as well as piece of mind knowing you are doing your part to help the environment. What many building owners may not realize is that installing a solar roof system could damage their roof, void their roof warranty and end up costing them more in the long run.“Solar Roof Systems- The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” will identify the potential issues with a rooftop solar installation, what questions they should be asking and how to avoid serious, costly problems. This presentation will also have a discussion on the Denver roof legislation specifically and roof products can can help you achieve the requirements.

The focus of this presentation is to demonstrate the proper selection of construction materials to maximize sustainability. We will discuss a systematic approach to the modern design considerations through the various layers of the building envelope with emphasis on controlling water intrusion, weathering and/or air leakage, control of vapor and thermal properties while improving the energy efficiency and exceeding the building codes for Colorado.

As more states, jurisdictions and the design community require air barriers, the issue of connecting the wall air barrier assembly to other building assemblies, such as below grade, window systems and roofs need to be completely understood in order to design and construct a functioning building enclosure.
One of the most often missed or not well executed details is the connection between the wall air barrier and roof assembly. With a myriad of roof systems, wall configurations and the growing number of wall air barrier products, it can be difficult to navigate the process in regards to what systems work best with each other and the chemical compatibility of these systems.
This presentation will focus on things to consider from a design standpoint, along with practical approaches to ensuring a robust connection is constructed and executed.
Schauffele is a thirty year member of CSI, an internationally published author and speaker in the fields of energy conservation and sustainable building envelopes including insulation, air barrier technology, roofing & waterproofing, vegetative & cool roofing, all with an eye towards improving building science, performance and quality of life. He is the acknowledged inventor of “The Perfect Wall” which is now the nationwide building code standard for wall construction.
He currently serves as a Past Board Chairman of the ABAA (Air Barrier Association of America), after 3 terms as Chairman. Currently a Technical Advisor to Build San Antonio Green (BSAG) and an award winner 2012 for his Technical Contributions to BSAG and last year named (2016) Individual Green Practitioner by the City of San Antonio for Sustainable Education and Outreach.
Talk to the industry experts on various products and solutions for your next project. Tradeshow will be continuously going on throughout the event.
