It can be hard to combat mold, especially with recent changes to building code, wood structural building components will dry out under dry outdoor weather conditions after the structure is put under roof, sheathed, sided and roughed-in (mechanicals) — assuming the structural components are not exposed to further wetting from rain. Such drying must occur before the components are “closed-in” (e.g. covered up with insulation and drywall).
The BuildSMART panel design protects the integrity of the building’s weather resistive, thermal and air barrier envelope by keeping materials and processes dry, and focusing on a seamless process in the factory, we check several quality control concerns off the list.
