WK2LIVE6: Summer Moisture: Problems and Solutions

"What are common summer time moisture issues? What tools are used to evaluate them? And what are the cures—whether the simple fix for the number one most common complaint, or seven figure repairs for complex ones? A lot of the “building science” information we get was developed from cold-climate research, and the rules that work in Wisconsin or Waterloo Ontario are not always appropriate for southern climates, particularly in our warmer, much more humid summers. In this presentation, an experienced hand at troubleshooting shares lessons learned over decades of evaluating, repairing, and most importantly preventing summer time moisture issues. Real-world case studies are investigated by the group which makes for lively discussion! Generously illustrated with over 100 photos, and presented in an open discussion style so everyone can contribute."
