Summary
"In this thoroughly revised new edition of his book, Barry A. Richardson guides the reader through the most significant problems: structural, and thermally-related; and problems of moisture, noise, wood, masonry, concrete, coatings, foundations, walls, windows, roofs, floors, combustion, and plumbing; and concludes with an examination of external problems and health-and-safety related problems. Newly emerging problems which are introduced or given fuller coverage include sick building syndrome, failures of cavity fill insulation, outgassing, sulphate and chloride attack of cement-based materials, stainless steel corrosion, brick spalling and vapour permeability." "Architects, building surveyors, structural engineers and building contractors should find this an invaluable guide to the diagnosis of existing problems and their avoidance in the design and construction of new buildings."--BOOK JACKET
