IAQ Radio+ returns to Cajun Country this week to learn about construction methods, myths and mistakes from renowned building scientist Paul LaGrange. Mr. LaGrange is a master forensic investigator for moisture and energy movement in both historic and new homes located in the hot humid Gulf Coast Southern region of the US. LaGrange Consulting has been providing energy efficiency solutions for builders and homeowners since 1999. They are a full service consulting company specializing in energy efficiency, indoor air quality, and sustainability in residential and small commercial buildings.
Paul also works as an expert witness for legal cases related to building science and is a building science educator at the LaHouse Resource Center at LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. If that is not enough Paul is also a Former Contractor with over 20 years of building experience and enjoys sharing his experience on his WWL radio show, through his Paul’s House referral network and through his blog.
Paul is well known in Building Science circles as an excellent Cajun Chef and makes a mean Gumbo, as anyone that has attended The Annual Westford Symposium on Building Science aka “Building Science Summer Camp” over the past decade will tell you. Learn More this week on IAQ Radio+ through case studies about lessons learned from diagnosing moisture in materials, evaluating methods to fix mistakes, and demystifying BS (Building Science) myths anywhere but particularly in hot humid climate zones!
