Our Background

How We Got Our Start

It all began with a very personal experience.  We bought our home shortly after our wedding and it was absolutely the home of our dreams.  It didn't take long before we realized there were some problems. A friend introduced us to the field of Building Science and we applied what we learned to solve the problems and create a Better Home!  We were so elated that we had to share what we knew with others to help make their buildings healthy, safe, comfortable, efficient and fossil fuel free .

We utilize building science principles and diagnostic testing to help building owners resolve the most challenging issues - including pests, indoor air quality, ice dams, rooms that are too hot or too cold, unpleasant odors and more. Rather than address the symptom of the problem, we focus on identifying and addressing the root cause so that you can focus on the things that make your life meaningful.


Our staff has the ability to assist you with installing upgrades to your existing building. We can also serve as an adviser to work with your builder and town officials to ensure that your project is completed exactly the way you want it to be - comfortable, healthy, safe, durable place to be for many years to come.


We work on buildings of all types and ages, and our specialty is historic buildings built

before 1930. We look forward to speaking with you about your building!
