REMODELER BENEFITS

FOR BUILDERS
You build good quality homes — your business depends on it. When you shake hands for that last time with the homeowner, you want them to be happy and hopefully send a referral your way. But Ring-a-ling, “What’s that you say? You’ve got peeling paint and mold? You feel cold drafts during winter? The windows are rotting from condensation? Smoke is spilling into the house when you light the fire? There’s water dripping into the house from ice dams?”

Call backs. You can avoid them. If there are building performance problems, then there are solutions. I have the expertise to help you take your business to a higher level of performance with the latest in Building Science technology. I review blueprints and work with the trades at the job site. I can train them to become more proficient with air sealing – the primary source of air leakage. I will check the house at specific stages to be sure nothing is missed during construction. And if you want to qualify the building as an Energy Star Home, I will work with you to meet those requirements.

Should you get a call back from a client that believes you built the house incorrectly, I can, with the utmost confidentiality, help diagnose where the real problems lie. My experience with this process has shown me that homes are built to code, but that there may be something else going on. In some cases the occupants are using the house in a way that causes the problems. In other cases, although homes are built to code, the minimum code doesn’t necessarily guarantee good performance and the home may need an upgrade. Either way, the computerized data I collect directly addresses the physics of how the house performs. This allows for unbiased data collection and problem resolution. Bringing me into the process gives your company the image you want to present, that you are taking a proactive approach to resolve their issue.

Because it’s ForeSight that prevents 20/20 hindsight.

FOR REMODELERS & INSULATORS
Before you build your client’s addition or add insulation to a house, remember that changing one part of the house will affect other systems in the whole house, and sometimes detrimentally! Building Science research has proved that the house is an integrated “system” of events – that invisible air, heat, and moisture flows through the house’s systems. Changing the structure of a building will change these flows which can lead to mold, ice dams, carbon monoxide poisoning, condensation on windows, peeling paint, attic roof deck delamination, ice dams, and a host of other problems.

To avoid possible problems or call backs, let me test, measure, and diagnose the house before work is started. I will then work with you, even train your workers, to correctly resolve heat, moisture, and air flow problems. And I can help consider appropriate issues ahead of time so that the remodel properly ties into the original house. Working with me from the start will ensure a quality product for your client.

Should you get a call back from a client that believes you provided the remodel to the house incorrectly, I can, with the utmost confidentiality, help diagnose where the real problems lie. My experience with this process has shown me that remodeling is usually built to code, and there may be something else going on. In some cases the occupants are using the house in a way that causes the problems. In other cases, although homes are remodeled to code, the minimum code doesn’t necessarily guarantee good performance and the home may need an upgrade.
