The Science of Building Better Basements

 Virtual  

More and more homebuyers expect their basements to provide the same level of comfort, liveability, and moisture control as above grade spaces. Homebuyers won’t accept the damp, cold, wet, mouldy basements of the past. For smart builders, this presents an opportunity to perfect their craft and to deliver the high performance living space that their home buyers demand. This seminar will identify key areas to enhance basement performance, introduces best practices to understand materials, components, and systems and how they work together and ultimately to provide a better basement.
