AbstractThis paper addresses seven issues which, if left unresolved, will hamper industry in its efforts to design and construct safe, comfortable and durable buildings. Four of the issues pertain predominantly to the performance of above-grade envelopes: 1) wet insulation 2) plastic insulation blown with CFCs 3) radiant barriers 4) air barriers. Three issues pertain specifically to below grade envelopes: 1) adfreezing and ice lensing 2) air and water leakage 3) condensation on concrete walls.
