    A typical brick wall is full of thousands of holes! If you stand an watch a brickie laying
    bricks you will quickly see why.A single leaf wall will often have water passing through it, if
    it is in an e...

  • Posted in thread: Moisture- Should I vent roof for my small building or buy fan? Conflicting answers. on 02-19-2015 at 10:16 AM
    The other side of the story is, warm air holds more moisture than cold air.Homes and other
    places that are heated on a part time basis, are subject to condensation when the heating is
    turned down or o...

  • Posted in thread: Crawl Space .... To encapsulate or no? on 09-29-2014 at 10:41 AM
    I had a second company come in this past week to give an assessment. This company also seems to
    make encapsulation their bread and butter. The estimate came to between 8-10K depending on the
    vapor bar...

    You aren't suggesting that you would insulate between the joists and then apply a vapor barrier
    to the joists are you? I've read that is a definite no no.You probably know that wood is
    hygroscopic, an...

    Basements are interesting things, are you insulating to help keep the room above warm? Or do
    you intend to live there? Or for some other purpose?

  • Posted in thread: Crawl Space .... To encapsulate or no? on 09-23-2014 at 01:03 PM
    Virginia is a humid place, as such a vented crawl space is not a good idea.The problem is, that
    warm wet air always heads for a cold surface to condense.A crawl space is likely to be below
    "dew point"...

  • Posted in thread: Can Fan solve water condensation issues in attic? on 09-23-2014 at 11:35 AM
    People create water vapor by washing, cooking, breathing - for a start.Water vapor is pulled
    into the roof by the passing wind and sometimes because warm air rises.When the inside of the
    roof is below...

    Fascinating subject, it should be taught at school.So many people have trouble
    understanding.One thing that troubles me about the insulation industry and builders is, that a
    Polar bear has a two inch ...

    I bought a house with a finished basement. Its always cold there. And gets colder the further

    the low or la...
