Building Science is the collection of scientific knowledge that focuses on the analysis and control of the physical phenomena affecting buildings. We use Building Science as a diagnostic approach to problem solving. Experience and observation, coupled with pressure diagnostics, infrared imaging, and combustion analysis, allow us to diagnose and correct the most challenging building performance problems.

Building Performance is a set of measurable building characteristics including:
♦ Durability of the Structure
♦ Moisture Management
♦ Energy Efficiency
♦ Indoor Air Quality
♦ Structural Performance
♦ Thermal Comfort

Building Performance is the belief that buildings can and should be made safe, comfortable, durable, and energy-efficient. Putting building performance into practice requires a whole-house perspective. Having our certified contractors measure, calculate, and analyze a building, allows us to better understand the way your specific structure works and operates in order to recommend the best way to improve it without off-setting the balance of how it effects you.
