Water, Water Everywhere and Not a Drop to Drink: Practical Building Science to Keep Walls Dry

Newer homes, materials and code requirements have changed the way “invisible” water (water vapor) must be managed to avoid it becoming visible in unwanted ways. Water vapor control is one of the trickiest and riskiest areas of building and energy code compliance. The old “rules of thumb” are no longer reliable or universal. This session, presented at IBS 2017, provides actionable prescriptive guidelines for integrated insulation and vapor control strategies. Specific applications and unique situations from the audience will also be explored.
