High-R Walls for Remodeling: Wall Cavity Moisture Monitoring

Stacey Rothgeb, Stacey Rothgeb (NREL Technical Monitor)

Research output: NRELSubcontract Report


The focus of the study is on the performance of wall systems, and in particular, the moisture characteristics inside the wall cavity and in the wood sheathing. Furthermore, while this research will initially address new home construction, the goal is to address potential moisture issues in wall cavities of existing homes when insulation and air sealing improvements are made.
