What It's About:This presentation will review the benefits that a rainscreen provides in a high performance home and examine the three most common rainscreen systems, including: furring, ventilation mats and open joint veneers. You’ll also explore best practices for designing and constructing a well-drained and ventilated rainscreen system and analyze the way that various wall systems are being detailed in residential construction. Content presented by Keene Building Products.
Through a series of live, interactive construction demonstrations, nationally acclaimed instructors and building science experts Matt Whitbeck, Kevin Ireton and Gord Cooke will take you through the practical, real-world side of high performance building and show you the latest methods and techniques for building various components into your homes.
And to complement these demonstrations, we've added a Building Performance Lab to the HPBZ in 2017. A small, finished model home with various cut-aways and see-through sections, the Lab gives you an inside-look at how high performance wall systems, floors, HVAC, insulation and more are constructed and finished, and how the products and techniques discussed and shown on our Demo Stage translate to a real structure.
