With the extensive types of sheathing now available, typical installation methods may need to be revisited. In this session, we will review different types of integrated sheathing systems, their installation methods and how they may deviate from the installation of standard wood structural panels, and the critical installation details that must be followed to reduce the risk of building enclosure failure.

Learning Objectives

  1. Review the specific installation instructions for integrated sheathing systems related to the structural specifications.
  2. Review the specific installation instructions for integrates sheathing systems related to the water resistive barrier specifications.
  3. Identify how integrated sheathing systems can provide a comprehensive option to standard wood structural sheathing.
  4. Understand how integrated sheathing systems can provide an alternative to conventional wood structural sheathing, air barrier, and WRB layers, which can provide a holistic approach to providing control layers with the installation of one product.
