The Effects of Building Movement on Interior Finishes and Solutions (print course)

Building components, especially finishes, have to contend with many structural and environmental factors such as different types of loads that cause movement in the building. Special care must be taken when multiple materials come into contact with one another or where joints, edges, or corners are formed. Using new construction technology and products that absorb or resist movement will maximize the longevity of systems and finishes. This course will cover the types of loads and movement that may occur in a building, how they will affect interior finishes, and solutions for preventing damage to building components from movement.
