Event Description

Do you want to improve the performance, efficiency and durability of the homes you build?

This full-day skill building workshop is designed to help residential building professionals examine the causes for common residential building problems, and partner with educated consumers to improve overall home performance and reduce liability in callbacks.

Joe Nagan will uncover exactly what the issues are when building high performance homes in a cold climate. This workshop will review the "field tested and proven" building techniques used by Wisconsin builders in certifying over 14,000 Wisconsin ENERGY STAR® Homes. Participants will receive unbiased information on the newest technologies and tested results to see details that you can use to assure better building performance.
