Summer Moisture: Problems and Solutions
March 7

At Maggiano’s Restaurant at Friendship Heights, 5333 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20015.

A lot of the “building science” information we get was developed from cold-climate research, and the rules that work in Wisconsin or in Waterloo, Ontario are not always appropriate for the Washington, DC region’s climate, particularly in our warmer, more humid summers. What are the most common summertime moisture issues? What tools are used to evaluate them? And what are the cures – whether the simple fix for the number one most common complaint, or seven figure repairs for complex ones?

In this presentation, an experienced hand at troubleshooting, Doug Horgan, Vice President for Best Practices at BOWA, shares lessons learned over decades of evaluating, repairing, and most importantly, preventing summer-time moisture issues. Profusely illustrated with over 100 photos, and presented in an open discussion style so everyone can contribute.

Organized by AIA Potomac Valley and the Capital Area CRAN (Custom Residential Architects Network), a tri-chapter committee founded jointly by AIA DC, AIA Northern Virginia and AIA Potomac Valley.
