Protecting the 1st Side of the Home with Effective Foundation Vapor Barriers
Event Description

Residential construction is experiencing a surge, but do you feel confident in the available product options? 

We want to help you build homes that future owners want. This 1-hour webinar will provide an in-depth, educational look at the cause and effects of below-slab moisture and vapor concerns and considerations for incorporating effective, durable protection. Understanding the importance of isolating homes permanently from the ground (and the range of soil threats) can significantly benefit homebuilders and their customers by helping improve home performance, durability, and indoor air quality. We're here to clear up any confusion around foundation vapor barriers and help you stay ahead in this growing industry. Plus, earn 1 AIA or 0.1 ICC CEUs for attending.

What you'll learn:

  • The role high-performance vapor protection at the foundation plays in the home's long-term performance, including human health, durability, energy efficiency, and reduced ownership costs. 

  • The science behind below-slab moisture migration concerns into the first side of the home.

  • The role water vapor barriers can play in radon mitigation systems to help lower indoor radon concentration levels. 

  • 2021 IRC code changes for below-slab vapor protection and the potential problems associated with generic poly sheeting.
