SBCA Technical Webinar: Gypsum Cracking Issues & Trusses

Wed, May 10 2017 1:00pm to 2:00pm (CDT)

Drywall cracking and ridging are typical problems seen in ceilings and walls of homes. Sometimes, both of these issues appear at the same location, with cracking appearing in wetter months and ridging in drier months. This problem has become more widespread as homeowners insist on larger rooms and open floor plans that have large clear span areas.

Please join us on Wednesday, May 10 from 1-2 pm Central for a webinar presented by Jim Vogt, P.E., on gypsum cracking issues with metal plate connected wood (MPCW) trusses. This presentation evaluates local environment changes that play a significant role in every gypsum ridging and cracking case.

The information presented in this course is useful for building officials, component manufacturers, design professionals and framers. The program is AIA approved and continuing education credit (CEU) and professional development hours (PDH) are available. This webinar is free to attend; for participants who need a certificate demonstrating CEU credits, the cost is $25.
