Summary
Improvements to housing will require both research and the transfer of that research to homebuilders, homebuyers, and others in need of technology. This report summarizes results of a national survey on research and technology transfer needs for housing and prioritizes those needs. Survey participants included academicians, builders, code officials, government officials, homeowners, manufacturers, and others. In addition to determining overall priorities, research and technology transfer needs are also categorized into important priority areas for housing: construction, design, disaster, durability, environmental factors, fasteners and adhesives, inspection, materials, operation, maintenance and rehabilitation, and other areas. Analysis of the needs for housing research and technology demonstrates great interest in, and high priority for, moisture and mold issues, wood preservation and related fastening technology, and development of standardized inspection and installation procedures for materials and products. Priorities identified in this study will be used by the Forest Products Laboratory for developing a national program for housing research and development
