Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


When a building suffers structural damage, the causes of that damage have to be properly identified before any remedial work can be undertaken. The Structural Defects Reference Manual for Low-Rise Buildings has been written to assist professionals and students involved in building construction to identify causes of structural failure. Each chapter carefully addresses design, materials and workmanship factors which contribute to structural defects. The main structural elements - roof, walls, floors and foundations - are all covered and illustrated by case studies. The book also contains relevant data and guidance to show how all the different building elements should be designed and constructed. This practical reference manual will be an invaluable guide for surveyors, engineers, loss adjusters, students of construction and anyone else concerned with structural defects in low-rise buildings.
