A comprehensive overview of the control layers of a wood-framed sloped roof assembly. New code provisions will be discussed for high-performance, green and sustainable building practices. The differences between vented and unvented assembly requirements will be defined. In conclusion, a review of the emerging 2018 code provisions will be done as well as a comparison of different methods to providing continuous and integrated air, water, and thermal barrier.
As manager of Huber Engineered Woods’ Product Engineering Team, Chris Clark is a technical resource providing consulting to contractors on the jobsite, as well as architects and engineers in regards to how HEW products can be incorporated into their design to meet local building codes. Since graduating with a Masters of Science in Civil Engineering with a focus on structural engineering, his decade of industry experience is centered on the design requirements of wood-framed structures.
- Explain the primary functions of a wood-framed sloped roof including four primary, code-based barriers for high performance, green, and sustainable buildings.
- Define the common options for wood-framed sloped roofs relating to venting, insulation, and current (2015) code requirements
- Review the emerging research and 2018 code provisions that address new variations in unvented wood-framed sloped roof assemblies
- Compare some of the different methods for providing continuous and integrated air, water, and thermal barriers in roof assemblies.
