About This Program
Water damage is the number one cause resulting in lawsuits against builders. In the spring, the roof leaks, but it has not rained for months. Where is the water coming from?
I used high-permeable materials in the building construction, so why do I have moisture problems? I have been constructing buildings for decades; I never had a moisture problem in the past, so why am I getting them now?
This presentation shows the ways that moisture moves in the building and why moisture problems are showing up in today’s construction. The energy and moisture transport calculator is used to provide some of the answers to these questions.
- Determine the ways that moisture moves in building assemblies
- Articulate why water vapor transmission properties of a single material are not important
- Identify the top two ways why moisture will show up in a building assembly
- Identify why moisture problems in buildings will continue to get worse in the future
