Are the Walls Closing In?
Time: June 28, 2016, 3-4 p.m. EST
New building products and new code requirements are coming to market by the hour. Although building science advice is prevalent, there are no perfect, “one-size-fits-all” answers for how to take that next step in high performance construction. In this presentation, we will talk about moisture performance of walls such as what we know, what we don’t know, and the pros and cons of various water management strategies. Trends observed in recent field moisture studies will also be discussed. To assist in addressing these concerns and opportunities, the Building America Program is hosting a no-cost webinar that will discuss the goal to help you design a wall system that works best for you, your trades, and your customers. The presenter for this webinar will be Vladimir Kochkin, director of the Applied Engineering Group at Home Innovation Research Labs.
