Moisture Management in Commercial Building Enclosures

Presented by Harold Bare, Dupont Building Innovations.

Moisture is the most significant factor in the premature deterioration of buildings.  Moisture can damage materials directly, but it can also reduce the effectiveness of building materials.   Exceess moisture is also the major factor in the growth of mold.  

The Most common contributing factors to moisture problems in buildings include:
- Lack of understanding of building science princiiples
- Design related factors, e.g., lack of sufficient details in the drawings
- Installation related factors, e.g., improper materials substitutions, lack of installer training and lack of inspection during construction.

Learning Objectives: After attending this seminar, you will be able to understand
1. The impact and potential liabilities of moisture intrusion
2. The main moisture sources and the moisture transport mechanisms
3. The 3 Barriers for protecting against bulk water and moisture vapor migration
4. The difference between Water, Air and Vapor Barriers

This seminar will discuss the moisture sources in buildings (construction moisture, interior moisture due to occupant use, or exterior moisture), moisture transport mechanisms as bulk water  and as water vapor, and moisture control strategies.  Special emphasis is given to rain penetration which is the leading cause of water problems in walls.  The building science principles  behind ghe moisture-control strategies and a comparison of water, air, and vapor barriers are also addressed. This presentation includes 1 AIA CEU HSW, and GBCI/LEED CMP
