Webinar: Walls That Work–An Intro to the Four Control Layers

A discussion of wall assemblies and the specific details that are needed for durable, comfortable, and energy-efficient homes

Brian Pontolilo

For a comfortable home and a wall that won’t fail, you must control water, air, vapor, and temperature. In this webinar we’ll study the four control layers, take a look at building codes and various climates, and open up a handful of walls that work.
