I’m trying to find a green construction expert in the New Orleans area to help remedy a ventilation issue in my existing house.

Relatively recent construction with mold issues in two upstairs bathrooms.

    You can find a Resnet contractor at http://www.resnet.us/directory/search, but that may not be necessary. It is not unusual for new construction to have a lot of retained moisture. Often, you can run an Energy Star dehumidifier for six months and dry out the structure to the point where the bath fans and HVAC maintain an acceptable inside environment.
