As a professional you need to find information quickly and this book gives you a first point of reference and practical guidance to the identification and treatment of problems associated with some types of building materials. It brings together the essentials of a wide range of different materials and forms of construction over the years that: may have been found to be hazardous to persons or to the environment; may have been considered to be deleterious; might have been regarded as being problematical in some way; and would probably be labelled as deleterious if they had their chance again. It gives you advice on: the nature of the material; its normal use; problem areas; methods of diagnosis and analysis; and methods of repair. "Investigating Hazardous & Deleterious Building Materials" also examines the history of the use of the materials in question and guidance to the ages and types of building most at risk. It is essential reading for building surveyors, home inspectors, building engineers, architects, facilities managers, students and other built environment professionals.
