Building Envelope Science Institute Initiates Patent Process on Remediation of Buildings with Defective Drywall
The Building Envelope Science Institute (BESI) was launched in 2009 to provide a solution to the defective or corrosive drywall crisis which has unfolded over the last seventeen months or so. The Institute developed what is being referred to as the “BESI System” and has now filed a provisional patent on their process for remediation of buildings that have defective or "corrosive" drywall.
The Building Envelope Science Institute (BESI) was launched in 2009 to provide a solution to the defective or corrosive drywall crisis which has unfolded over the last seventeen months or so. The Institute developed what is being referred to as the “BESI System” which provides a cost effective method that helps homeowners, insurance companies, investors, financial institutes, and builders recover from the stigma of having defective or corrosive drywall. “The institute and its members have an on-going commitment to helping those who have been devastated by this crisis,” said Jones.
The Institute has initiated the process to receive a patent for the protocol that was developed to remediate structures with defective or corrosive drywall. The Institute filed a provisional patent application with the United States Patent Office, assigned the serial number 61/299,629 and will be filing a non-provisional patent application in the coming months.
The Building Envelope Science Institute has a “Nationwide Directory of Members” that currently allows individuals looking for qualified inspectors and/or remediators for defective (corrosive) drywall to locate certified members in their area and compare the services that they have to offer, thus enabling them to make an informed decision.
