SW Branch & HE – Damp, Timber Decay, and Sustainability Conference

4 May - 14:00 - 15:45
Free

However, the need to reduce heat loss and carbon emissions is posing new challenges for the management of moisture in older buildings. A roof structure, for example, will become colder if heat transfer from the rooms below is reduced, leading to greater risk of condensation, mould growth and timber decay. Ventilation may not always be beneficial.…
