Public awareness of the consequences of hidden moisture continues
to escalate as the insurance industry moves away from covering moisture
based claims and/or owners are subjected to health risks from mold. Hidden moisture is not just a concern of the home buyer. The builder
has an investment as well. Excessive moisture in the structure,
coupled with fluctuating temperatures, leads to potentially damaging
expanding and contracting of the building envelope. As a builder,
your post construction costs can be dramatically reduced by properly drying the structure during construction.
HCI assists builders by proactively:
- Detecting moisture at mid construction,
- Drying at mid-construction, and
- Certifying newly constructed homes to meet or exceed moisture
content building standards inside the home.
Our technicians, using the latest technology, detect moisture content
of the interior walls, floors and crawl space during construction. If excess
moisture exists, HCI will utilize our specialized drying
process to remove moisture from the structure. HCI's drying process is significantly faster, more effective and
ultimately more cost effective than allowing the structure to air-dry or using the furnace.
Upon the completion of our services of each home, we issue a Dry
Score™ Certificate of Moisture Content. Our Dry Score™ Certificate:
- Specifically identifies each home via lot #/physical address
- Has a unique certificate number, dated and signed by the independent
Home Certified, Inc. technician, and
- Specifies the individual moisture content readings recorded
The Dry Score™ Certificate will
add value as a marketing tool by informing home buyers that you
have engaged an independent company to certify that your quality
homes are Dry Inside™. In addition,
we will retain the data collected from each individual home in our
database in case a post-construction incident occurs.
