    Twenty-eight comprehensive chapters focus on the major issues involved in the process of moisture resistive construction. This one-of-a-kind publication provides the latest and most important information relating to moisture problems in buildings.

    Three new chapters have been added to make this the ultimate publication on moisture control:

    • Details and Practice discusses design details suitable for preventing moisture problems in service.

    • Quality Management in Design and Construction discusses the need for and application of quality control and management during design and construction for preventing moisture problems in service.

    • Towards Development of Methods for Assessment of Moisture-Originated Damage looks to the future.

    The latest edition is divided into four parts:

    Fundamentals—addresses moisture transfer, condensation, and evaporation.

    Applications—discusses the technologies that affect the moisture balance in buildings and the techniques used to determine the suitability of materials, components, systems, and structures.

    Construction Principles and Recommendations—covers new and existing commercial and high buildings, new and existing residential buildings, and manufactured and historic buildings.

    Implementation—discusses implementation mechanisms.
