Moisture Management in Historic Buildings and New Assemblies
Bill Turner (Turner Building Science & Design)
Grand Teton National Park | AUG 29-31
One of the leading causes of rapid deterioration in historic structures and new assemblies is water; as vapor, liquid or in solid form. This course will examine moisture-related building issues as found in various foundations, walls, roof structures, and interior spaces. It will address evaluating the cause of suspected moisture damage or mold; designing effective drainage; the use of vapor and air barriers; considerations for adaptive reuse; and implementing moisture monitoring protocols. The course will focus on regional issues and other appropriate climates related to participants’ regions. Hands-on evaluation and problem solving components are planned.
