Subtitle: (2-part set)

The focus is on dampness due to penetration of groundwater, sometimes complicated by rising damp. Part 1 outlines the principles of constructing a waterproof basement. Part 2 describes the main methods for perimeter construction with advice on safety, insulation and services.
