This two-day course is the first component of a two-part series covering aspects of the technology and science of roofing in detail. It covers the history and evolution of roofing up to present-day common applications. It features terminology and technical information regarding roof decks and structures, roof insulation, bitumen membranes, built-up and modified-bitumen membranes, and flashing systems. An understanding of heat transfer theory, moisture, thermal design, and the calculation of U-factors are also presented. Instructors for the RT&S I course will be Mr. Joseph Ferrell, PE and Mr. Karl Schaack, PE, RRC.

Highlights of the program include:

  • Critical aspects of roof decking and related supporting structures
  • Heat transfer and practical heat transfer calculations
