Paperback Book: Dampness in Buildings, Diagnosis & Treatment (BLD1700) 2nd Edition. By: E G Gobert (Author) and T A Oxley (Author)

USED in Very Good Condition. There is some writing throughout the book.


This book explains the nature of dampness in buildings, how to diagnose a dampness problem before it gets out of hand and how to deal with it. It covers the problems of rising dampness and condensation (and how to distinguish them), which are generally not fully understood, even by many professional surveyors. The book stresses the need to use a moisture meter to obtain reliable and comprehensive information. Dampness in Buildings will be of immediate practical use to surveyors, architects, builders, housing managers and health inspectors. It will be equally valuable to house owners and potential purchasers.


Surveyors, architects, builders, housing managers, health inspectors, house owners, potential purchasers.
