Product Description

Review

"All [surveyors] would profit by reading this book and, if they remembered the excellent advice it gives, it would bring a broad smile to the faces of the insurers ... The book is full of useful information, much of which I have not seen before. ... should be compulsory reading for all who do it." Chartered Surveyor Weekly

"A lively, readable and informative book ... Most technical books have to be read little by little over time, but this is one which can be read from cover to cover at a single sitting. ... A book with something for everyone involved in domestic building surveys from prospective purchaser to practising surveyor. It should be compulsory reading for the graduate entrant on the first day in the office if not previously read and inwardly digested" Estates Gazette

"In presentation and content, this is a practical and useful addition to the library of all surveyors at all stages in their careers with, of course, particular reference to building and general practice surveyors. Both writing and printing are clear and precise and make for easy reading of what can be a complex subject. ... This is a good read and a recommended buy for reference" Architect & Surveyor

"The book is written in an easily readable style, giving credibility to the author's advice that building survey reports use simple straightforward English." The Surveyor and Valuer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Publisher

Starting with an introduction to the role of surveyor, chapters follow on the main structural elements, finishes and surfaces before dealing with the various types of reports and buildings that surveyors may encounter including historic buildings and the surveyor's role in conservation. Students will find it invaluable as a comprehensive introduction to this important subject. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
If you are a student in the construction industry, this book is excellent. Simple to understand, and full of useful tips - for instance, the top 100 defects to look for when surveying a building. I used this book constantly, and anyone who buys it will wonder how they managed without it.
