Moisture tolerance in turn surpasses the one problem typically looked for: winter interstitial condensation. Rain causing solar-driven vapor flows has gained more than equal importance since the energy efficiency paradigm promoted timber-framed inside leaves as an alternative in passive construction for the filled masonry cavity wall.

Today highly sophisticated one- and two-dimensional full heat and moisture models are available that allow modeling vapor and liquid flow, that are transient in nature, that consider moisture sources such as wind-driven rain, rising damp, initial moisture, sorption and de-sorption, interstitial condensation and surface condensation.
Also the effect of air permeability on interstitial condensation deposit in roofs was tackled as was the discussion about attic ventilation.
