High Performance Remodeling: Avoiding Unintended Consequences
Green remodeling presents opportunities to raise the performance standards for existing homes. But working with existing structures also presents a set of unique challenges. The unintended consequences of poor planning and a lack of understanding of building science can have dire effects. For example, as code requirements for insulation and tighter envelopes increase, a good understanding of moisture management is imperative. This on-demand module will present several scenarios with different pathways for improvements and explore both the positive and negative results of decisions made during the remodel.
Participants in this module will be able to:
- Recognize the relationship between thermal control and moisture control.
- Identify methods of moisture intrusion and impact on building envelope.
- Explore solutions for improved moisture management for increased durability.
- Identify key decision-making benchmarks throughout the design and build process in your next remodeling project.
