2020 - No More Moisture Damage in Buildings (English International Survey 2018)
Welcome to the survey to determine how to avoid moisture damage in buildings.
Since beginning to construct buildings, unplanned moisture ingress has penetrated building assemblies. Moisture damage is the cause of premature building decay and an unhealthy indoor climate (e.g. mould and odours). Heavy rain, floods, snow, saturated soil, ground water, and also indoor air are different sources of unwanted moisture in buildings.
The purpose of this survey is to determine the view of planning professionals on moisture damage in buildings. Other stakeholders such as construction companies, building owners, insurance companies, occupants, and local authorities will be consulted in future surveys. All survey results shall contribute to a “Roadmap to Buildings with Disappearing Risk of Moisture Damage”.
The Vision for 2020 is no moisture damage in buildings. Carefully planning moisture-free details for new buildings and consideration of moisture damage in each step during renovations lowers the risk of moisture damage. Thus, the goal of avoiding moisture damage in buildings could become reality.
Your contribution is very important. Thanks so much for participating!
