Moisture Management in Historic Buildings and New Assemblies

August 29, 2017 - August 31, 2017

Vanishing Teasures 2017 Special Topics* course

Bill Turner (Turner Building Science & Design)

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.

*SPECIAL TOPICS
Vanishing Treasures’ Special Topics workshops offer additional exposure to burning preservation topics facing our National Parks. They are offered in additional to the standard progression of Foundation, Core, and Materials courses.
