  • 3. A construction material used for wall and ceiling coverage inside buildings. Gypsum is made using panels made of gypsum plaster pressed between two thick sheets of paper, then kiln dried. Often called sheetrock or drywall.
  • 4.   A heat pump is a device that uses a refrigeration cycle either to heat or cool a building by passing air or water over either the evaporating or condensing coils.   The compressor/evaporator moves the coolant around through the unit to facilitate operation. The air handler moves the physical air around through the duct work and across the condenser.   One advantage is the affordability of the unit to purchase and operate.   The major disadvantage of the heat pump is its inability to operate well at very low temperatures and thus requiring a back-up system.
  • 5. or om press C
  • 6.   Insulation refers broadly to any object in a building used as insulation for any purpose. Whilst the majority of insulation in buildings is for thermal purposes, the term also applies to acoustic insulation.   Its primary use is to reduce the effects of the temperature of the outside ambient air and/or the air in adjoining regions.
  • 7. The lintel is the horizontal crosspiece over an opening, such as a door, window, carrying the weight of the masonry above it. Its used in CMU and masonry construction to span across openings. Two common lintel types are angle iron and concrete. This is an angle iron type.

  • 9. The joint below is a troweled joint. It is a flush joint. It measured at 3/8”. It is most likely type N. The brick serves as cladding on the outside of a residence.
  • 10. OSB is an engineered wood panel product that is manufactured in wide mats from cross-oriented layers of thin, rectangular wooden strips compressed and bonded together with wax and resin adhesives. It is a nonveneered product.
  • 11. A lavatory usually is drained by 1 ½” piping.
  • 12. A water closet is usually drained with 3” piping.
  • 13. Plumbing vents allow for air to enter the piping system and prevent a suction from forming in piping. It allows for free drainage.
  • 14. The sink pictured is a integral kitchen sink.
  • 15. Plywood is a type of engineered wood made from thin sheets of wood, called plies or wood veneers. The layers are glued together so that adjacent plies have their grain at right angles to each other for greater strength
  • 16. A radiant barrier is a thin sheet of highly reflective aluminum comprised of one or more layers (for puncture and tear resistance) that, when installed properly, will block at least 90% of the radiant heat that hits it.
  • 17. The rebar below is number 3, or 3/8”, in diameter. The indentations on the surface of the steel is to give the rebar a better bond with the concrete it’s embedded in.
  • 18. A gutter is a narrow channel which collects rainwater from the roof of a building and diverts it into a downspout.
  • 19. A vertical pipe or conduit that carries rainwater from the gutter, guttering of a building to a lower roof level, drain, ground or storm water drain.
  • 20. A splashblock is a preformed block of concrete that is designed to divert water from the outlet of the downspout to a direction away from the foundation
  • 21. Underlayment is a layer of material that is laid between the roof coverage material and the decking to provide an additional element of moisture protection during and after construction.
  • 22. A shingle is a thin unit of water-resistant material nailed in an overlapping fashion with other units to provide a watertight roof covering.
  • 23. Metal panel roofs can be made of metals such as enamel coated galvanized steel, copper, lead coated copper, stainless steel, and terne coated stainless.
  • 24. The horizontal line formed by the juncture of the surfaces at the top of a roof.
  • 25. The junction of a roof slope with another
  • 26. Horizontal edge of the low side of a sloping roof
  • 27. Sloping edge of a steep roof
  • 28. Undersurface of a roof overhang
  • 29. Exposed vertical edge of an eve
  • 30. A Building with out an exposed vertical edge of an eve
  • 31. The vapor retarder below is of the foil type. It’s placed on the side of the insulation that faces the exterior to slow the penetration of water vapor through the wall.
  • 32. This waterproofing is of the roll on, cementituous type and is used to keep the water from penetrating the brick at the point where the wall intersects the ground.
  • 33. A small opening that serves to drain water from the inside of or behind a particular building material or component.
  • 34. 3’ X 3’ X 4”
  • 35. The window is a fixed window. You can tell that it is because doesn’t move.
  • 36. You can tell this is an outswinging casement window because it is hinged along the top and bottom and has a mechanical assembly for operation
  • 37. The window is a single hung window. You can tell because it has a single, operable sash that slides horizontally.
