Portland Cement Association's Guide to Concrete Homebuilding Systems by Pieter A. VanderWerf

Book Description

This book is the first complete reference on the extraordinary new concrete-based homebuilding systems. One of the best-kept secrets in the construction industry, the new concrete homebuilding systems (CHS) are a far cry from the unappealing gray block and poured cement of the past. Not only are they more energy efficient than wood frame homes, but they offer greater durability and strength, as well as architecturally stunning design options - often at lower cost. For builders, architects, and others with a desire to learn more about state-of-the-art homebuilding technologies, here is a groundbreaking guide to CHS written by two members of the Portland Cement Association.Based on extensive research and interviews with builders, real estate professionals, tradespeople, and buyers, this unique book gives you all the information you'll need to decide whether to try a CHS. You'll learn why CHS homes: are cheaper and easier to build than wood frame homes; offer better quality control; stand up to violent weather, earthquakes, and fire; are easier on the environment than traditional wood-intensive construction methods; provide greater living comfort. Drawing from field-based research and case histories, the authors explain every type of system available, analyze product and labor costs and availability, and examine job logistics. They also tell you where CHS homes are selling, who's buying them, and how to promote and sell them to consumers.
