Building Science Briefs: Houston "Wash 'n Wear Buildings"
Resilient Houstonians are taking steps to rebuild better and plan for the next flood by building drainable, dryable walls. Building Scientist Dr. Joseph Lstiburek weighs in on cost saving approaches to save homes in Hurricane Harvey territory, as well as recommendations for flood resilient new construction.
Lstiburek recommends retrofiting brick walls from the interior with a drainage mat, like Sure Cavity™, followed by closed cell spray foam to establish a flood tolerant, dryable assembly that only needs to be washed off in a future flood.
MTI is partnering with contractors, architects and owners in Houston to provide flood remediation recommendations and put lives back together.
