Whether your building is in the early stages of concrete cancer or the problem is advanced, the repair works are likely to be time consuming, costly and disruptive. While there’s no escaping this reality, you can make the process less difficult if you have some information.
The Amateur’s Guide to Managing Concrete Cancer Repairs is written not by an expert in repairs but by an owner who had to learn it all the hard way – the very hard way. This book will tell you what you need to know from the very start to the very end of your repair works. It’s divided into clear sections that take you through the repair process and includes a section on troubleshooting, for all those issues that will (not may) come up.
This manual won’t help you avoid the repairs, but it will help you avoid feeling like you have no power or knowledge about what’s going on.
NB: The content of this book is written with Australian readers in mind.
