Moisture Migration: Causes and Cures


Advances in product technology and building codes/standards have created unforeseen consequences, with moisture migration from different sources entering into the roof assembly and affecting its long-term performance. How the moisture moved into the assembly, the results, and the overlooked details shall be reviewed, as well as how to mitigate or correct these concerns prior to installation.


Learning Objectives:
  1. Learn how moisture migrates through vapor drive and results in possible condensation.
  2. Understand the sources of vapor moisture and how to control them.
  3. Comprehend the concerns of modifying the use of a building without considering the roofing assembly.
  4. Understand the issues about moisture in concrete, drying times, field testing, and roofing installation options.
