This presentation will review the purpose of exterior building sheathing with the insurance adjuster and the common types that may be encountered in the field. The course outlines the types of sheathing and effects of moisture exposure from a flood event. Also covered are FEMA designations, cleaning and mitigation issues from the industry standard IICRC manuals and common issues found after flood events. Case studies of varying levels of damage to different types of sheathing are discussed in an open forum where audience members are encouraged to discuss experiences and solutions with the group.
