Book Description

The definitive guide to understanding and managing the effects of water on buildings Water in Buildings: An Architect's Guide to Moisture and Mold is a detailed and highly useful reference to help architects and other design professionals create dry, healthy environments, without jeopardizing a project with poor liability management.

Providing authoritative guidance to designers and builders, this definitive guide features: Clear explanations of how water interacts with building materials and equipment An in-depth exploration of the paths of leaks Numerous case studies on such well-known structures as Mount Vernon, Independence Hall, and Wingspan (Frank Lloyd Wright) Numerous descriptive drawings and photographs
