Sealant joints typically represent the smallest part of the building enclosure; however, failures at these interfaces represent the largest source for moisture and air infiltration issues. The presenters will discuss methods of evaluating existing sealant joint conditions, sealant joint design best practices, mock-up installation recommendations, sealant joint preparation, application processes, and construction quality control assurance.
