Housing disruption realities, crises, and transformations: are you ready?
Virtually every major industry has experienced, or is in the process of experiencing, massive disruption. Housing has been able to sit on the sidelines with its first-cost dominated business model and uniquely disaggregated industry, but not for much longer. That’s because there are three new realities setting the stage for disruption, five crises making disruption an imperative, and four transformations that will drive disruption in an industry totally resistant to change. Within this larger disruption context, high performance homes will play an increasingly critical role that needs to be fully integrated. Will you be ready?

Water management for a sustainable building enclosure
Join us to review how energy codes and the climate zone chart impact Wisconsin and consumer expectations for comfort and energy efficiency. Learn the pros and cons to barrier (taped sheathing) versus drainable (over-lapped house wrap with flashings) approach to water management for exterior walls. We will discuss the importance of continuity from exterior wall to roof including all window, door, and utility penetrations using flashings to air/water and insect seal for a more energy efficient, comfortable, and sustainable building enclosure. Learn how whole house blower door testing for air infiltration and HERS scores affect the homes you build.

Energy labeling: unlocking the value of an energy efficient home
Energy efficient contractors need their work to be valued in the real estate market in order for their homes to be respected and considered. As Wisconsin homeowner demand for energy efficient homes grows, it is clear residents are seeing the value -- lower energy costs, greater comfort and other benefits. So, how do we empower the real estate market to follow suit and give homes with energy-saving features more value? How do homeowners showcase the value of their photovoltaic arrays and other energy efficient features? Join us as we explore these questions and discuss how standardized energy labeling like Home Energy Score can document efficiency upgrades.
