Book Description

Dampness is a continuing cause of distress to building occupants. It is possibly a source of or a contributor to illness, and it encourages deterioration in the fabric of a building. Despite all the technical advice that has been published in the past there is still a significant set of problems. This book seeks to address them.

Topics covered include: Visible and hidden effects of dampness; Measuring moisture; Condensation; Rain penetration; Rising damp and more.

A highly useful reference for surveyors, architects, builders, facilities managers and students of those professions. 224 pages.
