Dry Out Construction Services

At each stage of a new construction build, you want to be sure the foundation is dry enough to move forward to the next phase. Too often, a builder pressed for time will use green or wet lumber with a high moisture count. Doing so can compromise the integrity of your home.

As a general rule of thumb, lumber intended for framing should not exceed a moisture content of 19 percent. Excessive moisture can lead to shrinkage, cracks, unsightly openings around your trim, and other related problems.

Once the framing is enclosed, it is almost impossible to correct these issues.

The Problem With Moisture

A damp structure is an unhealthy structure. You risk fungal growth that can only get worse over time. You find mold growth in areas that seem dry and have no leaks. Studies have shown a clear relationship between damp structures and respiratory issues.

Your home also suffers. Damp wood shrinks when it dries out. Doing so will warp the framing and allow more moisture to enter. It can also increase humidity levels. Your best strategy is to nip these issues in the bud before they develop. That means staying vigilant during the construction process.
