When construction sites face problems and work comes to a halt, materials left onsite such as timber frames are often exposed to the weather. Bad weather can also lead to flooding of properties.
There are no simple rules to assess the impact of moisture on timber-framed construction. Each individual case will need to be assessed to determine the extent of any degradation, and the rectification or repair required.
WoodSolutions: Design and Build presents a guide, titled ‘Impact and Assessment of Moisture-affected Timber-framed Construction’ that offers an overview of the key issues for assessment of moisture exposure and possible rectification.
The guide has been written to help building industry stakeholders understand these key issues when assessing moisture-affected timber construction. It also provides some guidance on how to address these considerations.
