Concrete foundations: NH17-73/1988E-PDF

"Basement cracks and leaks are among the most common sources of callbacks and warranty claims. The cost of repairs to foundations exceeds the cost of good construction practice. This guide identifies causes and provides solutions to problems in foundation walls, basement slabs and garage slabs. The recommended solutions are for poured concrete construction, but the principles can also be applied in general to concrete block construction"--Introd., p. iv.
