PRESENTATION: Masonry Flashing & Moisture Control

Sherry Hartel – Director of Industry Development and Technical Services, International Masonry Institute

Moisture management is essential to protecting building occupants as well as the building from damage from excessive moisture accumulation. Building materials that are exposed to prolonged damp conditions can lead to mold and bacteria growth, as well as corrosion of steel and failure of adhesives. Masonry flashing systems that are well designed and properly installed are an integral part of an overall moisture management strategy that will help protect the building and its occupants.

DEMONSTRATIONS: Mockup Review and Hands-On with Masonry & Flashing

BAC (Bricklayers & Allied Craftworkers) will demonstrate proper flashing techniques in mockups specifically designed for flashing within their training centers.  See what the BAC apprenticeships involve in their trainings.  The intent of this program is to expand on the seminar and provide Architects, Engineers, Code Inspectors, etc. with an enhanced ability to strengthen their knowledge of proper flashing techniques and what occurs in the construction field.  (Note: Please dress accordingly to participate in the hands on portion.)


Architects, Building Owners, Developers, Engineers, Preservationists, General Contractors, Specifiers, etc., interested in the preservation of buildings and structures.  Mason contractor’s signatory to the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers are welcome to attend.
