From the Inside Flap:

Building professionals often turn to formulaic prescriptions as aconvenient and accepted means of treating building deteriorationproblems. However, while these techniques can be useful and easy toimplement, they may not always result in the best solutions. InBuilding Pathology, Samuel Harris goes beyond boilerplate remediesto offer a more comprehensive and systematic approach todeterioration problems, diagnostics, and intervention. Thisapproach not only helps professionals improve diagnostic skills bygaining a deeper understanding of the deterioration process, butalso offers greater options for treating aging buildings anddesigning new structures for optimum performance.

Linking the underlying science to the many manifestations ofproblems, Harris clearly explains the principles and mechanisms ofbuilding deterioration, including why and how buildings deteriorateand what the symptoms look like. The information is presented in astraightforward and logical way, with separate chapters on majorbuilding systems-structural, vertical closure, horizontal closure,and active systems-that also address the performance and durabilityof specific materials.

In addition, the author opens up a wealth of valuable treatmentchoices and possibilities through his intervention matrix-apowerful "toolkit" of treatment methodologies that range fromabstention and mitigation to circumvention and acceleration.Throughout the book, photographs and line drawings graphicallyillustrate the concepts and building problems discussed in thetext.

Presenting a solid framework for addressing issues related tobuilding performance, Building Pathology is an essential resourcefor practicing and aspiring architects, structural engineers,building contractors, preservationists, and others concerned withthe health and survival of structures and their component systems.
