Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Foundation work is not the glamorous side of home building. It is hard, dirty work. But it's also the work upon which all other work rests, and so a good foundation is critical to every home. No source of knowledge on foundations and concrete work is better respected or more widely followed than that provided by the authors of "Fine Homebuilding" magazine.

This latest edition from the editors of "Fine Homebuilding" is the biggest and most authoritative volume yet on the subject. At 288 pages with more than 400 illustrative on-the-job photographs and drawings, "Foundations and Concrete Work" distills centuries of hands-on builder-tested methods and techniques as the finest builders in the country pass on the hard-won trade secrets for better construction.

From a thorough survey of concrete basics through forming and pouring foundations to keeping a basement dry, "Foundations and Concrete Work" will serve as the definitive guide to the subject.

Written by builders from all over the country, these articles are quite literally advice from the trenches.

Synopsis:

Collected from "Fine Homebuilding" magazine, these articles by professional builders, masons, and engineers show how to mix and cure concrete for long-lasting results; build a foundation on a sloping site; insulate and drain foundations; build concrete retaining walls and driveways; and much more.

Synopsis:

The For Pros By Pros titles are compilations of articles from Fine Homebuilding magazine, selected by the editors of the magazine and organized by subject. New articles from recent issues of the magazine have been added to this edition of Foundations and Concrete Work. Updated and redesigned throughout, this book gives builders the very best and current information.
