The Warm Dry Home:

Whether you live in a Victorian brick terraced house, or a 7 bedroom Cotswold stone country mansion, this book is for you.

Home owners, Building Surveyors, Architects, Engineers, Builders and Environmental Health Officers will also learn from a wealth of easily understood information. It will help prevent dampness and disrepair in the buildings they work with, and correct existing problems. They will never again resort to chemical injection, tanking or timber treatment.

Packed with practical advice to help understand the building environment, the book breaks down common mis-understandings as to why houses become cold and damp. Hundreds of photos and clear, easy to understand diagrams illustrate the book.

The author de-bunks the myth of rising damp, and explains the simple science behind the reasons for damp problems.

The book explains how to keep the home environment warm and healthy, by managing lifestyle and becoming aware of the sources of moisture that cause damp problems.

The author is a well-known advocate against any form of damp proofing. His YouTube channel and websites are packed with useful information. This book collects the experience of many years of building surveys into a single, easily understood volume.

    I have only given this book 5 stars because there isn’t an option for 6 stars

    This book is by far the best one I have read about dampness in buildings. The book is so well written and easy to read. Complex subjects are broken down and explained in an easy to understand way.

    Every survey, builder, damp-proofing contractor and home owner needs a copy of this book. This should be a teaching aid for people studying building surveying.

    Once you’ve read it, you will feel like you have completed a year at university.
