High Performing Resilient Wood Framed Roofs

October 19, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This course provides an overview and discussion of resilient construction methods related to roof construction. We start by defining resiliency as a design objective, then investigate the financial ramifications of natural disasters on structures not designed with resiliency in mind. We describe numerous programs that promote resilient construction in the US, including a program designed to provide insurance discounts to homeowners that build to resilient standards. Finally, the program describes the construction techniques that qualify as resilient practices and provides a financial comparison of the costs of these practices.

As a result of participating in this presentation, attendees will be equipped to:

  1. Identify and recognize the natural environmental forces that affect the design considerations of wood-framed roof systems.
  2. Assess the advantages and disadvantages of resilient vs. non-resilient design.
  3. Compare and contrast the performance characteristics of the components of a wood-framed roof system.
  4. Provide best practice solutions for resilient design of wood-framed roofs.
