4.7 out of 5 stars

on 10 March 2011
This 3rd Edition with its colour photos & graphics is an excellent ready reference book.
It is clearly written and covers a broad range of defects to a sufficient depth for both the practitioner, student or competent DIYer. It should be compulsory reading for cowboy builders!

It's a pity the book isn't hard-cover as it's quite big and I can't see it lasting (hence the 4 stars); nonetheless the content is superb - I'm a practicing building surveyor and it's a great reference. Buy it.

Really useful book for anybody on a Building Surveying Course. I have had lectures form 2 of the authors, and they are really experienced and knowledgeable. Perfect book if you are studying building defects, or as a reference for further study.
