Why Test?

Posted on October 18, 2012 at 4:00pm 6 Comments

I've been wondering lately why we're so hell bent on testing houses. After all, we're a bunch of smart building scientist type guys and gals, right?

What an ugly picture!

Hey,  I'm still struggling with my crawl space stemwall efflorescence.  Did you take the guy, Rich Cowperthwaite's  PG&E crawl space class? His suggestions to me:  French Drain, Structural Engineer, Reduce Landscape Irrig. & replace turf with native plants,  Get rid of old crawl FAU & replace/w sealed combustion unit, Seal all crawl space vents & weather strip access -All good but I was hoping for something cheaper.

See you Tue. 12/14
