This course is an introduction to the use of Portland Cement Plaster (Stucco) as an exterior cladding system applied to both commercial and residential buildings. Participants will be introduced to relevant codes and standards, system layers, components and recent advances.
This seminar will discuss: Designs of State-of-the-art moisture, air, thermal and vapor control layers of today’s stucco assemblies. Designs that are intended to help protect the building from unwanted moisture accumulation, material degradation that can reduce the potential for conditions that can lead to mold growth.
Learning Objective 1:
Participants will be presented a review of ICC I-Codes and ASTM Standards applicable to the design and construction of stucco assemblies.
Learning Objective 2:
Participants will learn about the materials and layers of stucco assemblies. How the layers are intended to function, and how they are properly constructed.
Learning Objective 3:
Participants will gain an understanding of the building science behind advanced stucco assemblies.
Learning Objective 4:
Participants will be presented design information on advanced stucco assemblies and how they can meet performance and energy code requirements of the ICC I-Codes
