7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mr J P Connor on 6 Jan. 2006
Format: Paperback
Although this book is fairly pricey, it's packed full of useful information that any surveyor WILL need to know. I bought this whilst studying for my HND in Building Studies and provided me with all the information i needed to know about building defects, diagnosis and cure's; each detailed with either photographs or simple diagrams. Although a little dated, it's definately a must for any aspiring building surveyor, or experieced surveyor, requiring additional information.
