My 33 years in the building science business has involved air barriers, waterproofing, and flat & steep slope roofing systems.
My roofing encompasses commercial systems (BUR, mod-bit, single-ply) and residential applications (asphalt shingles, cedar shingles, slate and metal. I am cognizant of code stipulations in regards to FM and UL for commercial roofs.
Attended numerous courses offerd by Roof Consultants Institute, Roofing Industry Educational Institute, Factory Mutual Research Corporation, University of Wisconsin, and BURSI. Lectured for RCI and mentored at a local university for a Building Science Certificate.
Government, commercial businesses such as The GAP, hospitals, school boards as a roof designer.
Always learning something new as I can never say I know it all.
Share my roofing knowledge with those who will benefit from it.
