Monitoring the Performance of a Retrofitted Preserved Wood Foundation
63326

This research describes the monitoring of corrective measures used to retrofit a preserved wood foundation in an Ottawa house, where mold growing inside the foundation caused sensitivities for the occupants. After an internal retrofit involving the continuous venting of the affected wall to the outside, addition of cellulose-fill insulation in the wall cavities and the addition of a new vented plywood baseboard, 80 sensors were placed in the affected area and monitored over winter and spring. Results were generally successful, but additional measures could have been taken.
