New Zealand houses - including many built in the 1990s Mediterranean style - are too often damp, cold and mouldy. In modern leaky buildings, water penetrates the building envelope and stays in the wall cavity, where it rots the wood and enables fungi to grow. This book outlines: the extent of our damp, mouldy houses; the history of leaky buildings; health effects - and costs - of exposure to indoor mould; ways to measure mould; the costs of fixing leaky homes; what we still don't know about indoor mould, and recommendations for future research.
