Book Description

Nearly all buildings have cracks in them. There are many different causes of cracking, but most of them are not associated with foundation movement - cracks are much more likely to be the result of changes induced by moisture or temperature. This Guide illustrates how to differentiate between cracks caused by foundation movement and cracks caused by other factors. 4 pages.
