The course encourages participants to think outside the box and consider using polymer cladding as a material to create aesthetic, enduring, and moisture-resistant rainscreens that will better protect buildings and their occupants. We will discuss other more commonly used products and the issues faced with each.
The course will also consider life cycle costs of various cladding options, including polymer. Participants will leave with a thorough understanding of how to install polymer extrusions as cladding. We will explore doing so on different substrates, detailing around openings, transitions between differing cladding materials, and how to handle joints between cladding components with the goal of using polymer as a resource to promote health, safety, and welfare of both people and the environment.
