WickRight is necessary component of any moisture damage repair.

"No one could have convinced me 15 years ago that I'd ever find this type of water damage in buildings constructed from 1996-2007.  The number of leaking and water damaged buildings is mind boggling, and it doesn't matter if it is an inexpensive condominium building or a high end multi-million dollar home.
Huge numbers of buildings in the Chicago area were constructed incorrectly.  They leak, and they're everywhere. People need to understand that old buildings and new buildings are completely different.  Old buildings are drafty, they don't have ton of plastic and vapor retardant materials, and the building lumber is old growth timber, which is full of toxic saps and oils that are extremely resistant to decay, mold, and moisture damage.  Old buildings "breath".  Moisture is rarely a problem.  
New buildings have huge amounts of plastic materials, they don't "breath." They are loaded with tree-farm grown and engineered lumber that is structurally adequate if kept dry, but extremely susceptible to moisture problems. Wet tree-farm lumber grows mold quickly and the material rots. Even if there isn't any visible damage, there can be serious problems brewing. In addition, indoor air quality is greatly effected by moisture hidden in the walls causing mold growth.

No one should be living in a mold infested home, and the only way to stop mold growth is to dry the structure out.  Mold can't grow without moisture.
Unfortunately, repair options are limited, because repairing masonry buildings is not simple, easy, or cheap.  It's often complicated, hard work that can cost a lot of money if appropriate systems and techniques are not used. It's not good enough to treat a building with sealant and walk away thinking the problem is solved, because it's not.  In some cases, sealants accelerate problems; they keep water out, but they also keep water in.
It's necessary to have continuous venting and vapor transfer out of the masonry.  WickRight products and building repair techniques were perfected in the field, actually repairing buildings; it's not an abstract concept.  Bob Kelly's systems (WickRight) are a necessary component of any moisture damage repair.  No one knows more about this stuff than Kelly does. He's opened up more buildings, found more problems, and repaired those problems better than anyone.  He's developed a completely unique approach to a complicated problem.  And, he's been doing this stuff for years with a solid track record of documented results.  No other repair systems even come close to the WickRight systems, which are adaptable to all manner of buildings and all sorts of configurations. 
I have witnessed the rodeo of "waterproofing contractors" who promise results that never materialize and essentially rip off consumers with false claims and techniques that ignore established building science. Owning a building with water problems is bad enough; but spending thousands of dollars on "repairs" that don't work and leave you with the same problem and a depleted bank account is much worse.
I've seen the WickRight systems work, and I would recommend it to anyone that is having moisture related problems with their building. I'd even recommend WickRight installation to homeowner's that aren't currently experiencing water problems as a preventative measure to insure that their home has satisfactory indoor air quality for healthy living."
