Participants will learn to identify problem areas during design stages and seek recommendations from the manufacturer and expert contractor; examine basic wall panel details and sheet metal wall flashing details and conditions, and recognize the proper installation of these flashing details; understand the importance and layout of wall flashing details in providing the owner the desired watertight and aesthetically attractive completed metal wall panel system; and more.
