Weatherization Technical

Addressing Roofs in Manufactured Housing

Wednesday, April 25
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Location: Franklin 1 (4th Floor)
CEUs: BPI, InterNachi, NARI, ASHI

Over 20 million Americans live in "affordable" factory built housing. Presentations will focus on attic insulation retrofits in HUD-code manufactured housing. Presenters will discuss implications for; energy efficiency, comfort, durability, moisture, IAQ, SIR economics, material and labor costs, installation logistics, inspections/quality assurance, occupant M&O education and future field research priorities. Mike Lubliner will discuss the Building America/WAP 2017 needs assessment research results that identified challenges and solutions. Paul Francisco will discuss why "weatherize tight and ventilate right" in HUD-code manufactured housing when conducting attic insulation retrofits.
