Identifying Cold Storage Condensation Challenges and Cures

Roofs and walls of cold storage buildings need to provide good thermal resistance and robust resistance to water vapor transmission. Insulated metal panels (IMP) do just that. As manufactured, IMP are perfect vapor barriers. The joints between IMP and flashings to adjacent insulated roofs? Not so much. They often rely on near-perfect application of literally […]

Identifying and Resolving Condensation Issues in Low-Slope Membrane Roof Systems

Building condensation is probably the last concern on most facility managers’ minds. And with good reason: condensation goes largely unnoticed when roofs are constructed out of heat-absorptive and heat-retentive materials. Heat retained by the roof rapidly dries out any moisture, creating a cycle of accumulation and evaporation that keeps serious issues at bay. When the […]
