Preventing mold problems and Creating a highly efficient, “Green” and cost effective building envelope
for Architects, designers, contractors, inspectors and homeowners
Mold is becoming a well known problem many renovation carpenters see everyday. Even newer buildings are susceptible to this increasingly major issue. Industry standard is to install a vapor barrier on the inside to block moisture from penetrating the assembly and apply OSB or plywood (for strength) and house wrap (to block the elements) on the outside. We trust these methods and products to work but judging by the magnitude and widespread nature of the mold problems, they are obviously not working well enough.
TrappeurHomes.com has found several simple innovative solutions and new products that greatly improve on the ‘industry standard’ for controlling moisture in your building assemblies. We are excited to share this knowledge with everyone who is interested in healthy houses.
