A vapor barrier is one of the most critical building components used to prevent indoor air quality issues and minimize moisture-related concrete slab and flooring system failures. Proper selection of a vapor barrier based upon the criteria of low permeance, high tensile strength, high puncture resistance, and chemical resistance will ensure that the vapor barrier not only performs as an effective barrier to moisture and other vapors, but will also maintain its physical integrity during the placement of the concrete slab. This course provides guidelines on how to properly select and locate a vapor barrier and how a vapor barrier can help earn LEED credits for building design.

This course is intended for engineers and architects who are involved with the design of waterproofing / vapor barriers for building construction.
