    Name: PHRC Manufactured Stone Veneer: Sticking to the Basics
    Date: April 9, 2019
    Time: 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:



    This webinar will take a closer looks at the basics of wall performance and apply these concepts to manufactured stone veneer. When considering the wide variety of cladding options available in residential constructions, builders, designers, and clients must weight a multitude of characteristics. Although aesthetics and cost tend to dominate the conversation, cladding performance in relation to moisture and durability should also be considered. While the challenges associated with exterior plaster in the form of stucco have been well documented, the conversation has not extended much toward manufactured stone veneer. As a reservoir cladding, manufactured stone veneer assemblies must be designed with performance and durability in mind in order to provide clients with a sound investment.


    Learning Objectives


    1. Review the fundamentals of building science, wall assembly design, and manufactured stone material properties in order to inform a discussion on durability and longevity.
    2. Discuss existing code requirements and standards that dictate the installation of manufactured stone veneer including the IRC, MVMA Installation Guide, and ASTM standards.
    3. Analyze existing best practices and the challenges they present in terms of cost and constructability.
    4. Present recommendations and considerations for builders and design professionals to aid in future design of durable, safe, and healthy homes with manufactured stone veneer cladding.
