Debra Monte replied to Jennifer Rupnow's discussion Crawlspaces & Barriers: Installation Standards / Best Practices for BPI Professionals & Contractors ? in the group Building Performance Institute (BPI)
"Code is minimum and it appears that the vapor barrier didn't even reach the walls in areas as per the photos.  90% humidity is not going to really resolve all the issues for the homeowner who is having respiratory issues.  While I…"

Debra Monte replied to Jennifer Rupnow's discussion Crawlspaces & Barriers: Installation Standards / Best Practices for BPI Professionals & Contractors ? in the group Building Performance Institute (BPI)
"You are certainly correct. Keep in mind that the Contractor is probably trying to work within the codes for his particular area.  The ICC and energy codes are being updated. If you are going to keep a crawl space unconditoned and ventilated,…"

Debra Monte replied to Jennifer Rupnow's discussion Crawlspaces & Barriers: Installation Standards / Best Practices for BPI Professionals & Contractors ? in the group Building Performance Institute (BPI)
"I am not sure what specifications the contractor used for this, but from the looks and sound of it, I would say that it is not thoroughly done or completed.  It is not going to function as a vapor barrier is the barrier doesn't cover all…"

"So where is the quality assurance and the oversight for that situation and many more like it.  They are going through all these changes to make improvements in quality,etc, such as videotaping the exams, but really it doesn't matter when…"

"Where did you find that information "log sealer, such as BPI recommends"?"

Debra Monte replied to randy tolowski's discussion New Certifications from BPI in the group Building Performance Institute (BPI)
"I have to agree with you.  Perhaps for the younger folks entering the Green Industry it should be a career ladder, but I kind of resent that at 52 years old and established in what I believed was a career. I agree there are many ways to grow…"

Debra Monte replied to randy tolowski's discussion New Certifications from BPI in the group Building Performance Institute (BPI)

"Very interesting question.... If the Energy Auditor and other new certifications are at a higher level, then what do you need the BA/EP for.  You already have the benefit of the training....  "

Debra Monte replied to randy tolowski's discussion New Certifications from BPI in the group Building Performance Institute (BPI)
"I was certified in 2009 and early 2010 as a BA and then as an Envelope Professional, which permitted me to perform the whole-house energy assessments (Energy Audits) and have been doing so.  This is a little disingenuous to now creat a…"
