Based on the article in the November 2011 issue of the Construction Specifier, this webinar discusses concealed building components such as built-in wall flashings are often modified or eliminated as part of the value engineering process. While these hidden components add little to the building's visual appearance, wall flashings are essential parts of its weather protection system. Often, decisions made in the name of cost efficiency provide very modest monetary savings when compared to the resulting degradation in reliability and durability. The speaker looks at various building failures and explores what could have been done differently to provide a better chance for success. The presentation takes a critical, balanced look at various flashing system options, detailing the associated advantages and drawbacks.
