Sustainable Building

Sustainable building is about managing moisture, and so are healthy, energy-efficient buildings.  The evidence supporting moisture intrusion into the building envelope as a major Sustainability, HSW and Energy Efficiency issue is overwhelming.  A report prepared for the HUD PATH Project in 2004 stated,

"Moisture, in all of its physical forms, is commonly regarded as the single greatest threat to durability and the long-term performance of the housing stock."
