This book is for construction professionals who want a clear understanding of alternative materials and how using them can enhance their projects, both residential and commercial. It covers the materials -- including their strengths and any limitations -- as well as installation tips and manhour estimates.
here you'll find the true facts, not the hype, about a variety of alternative materials. These are quality components that can help you deliver a better overall product -- something your customers will enjoy and benefit from long after you leave their projects.
All of the products covered here have been used or well-researched by the author and represent a cross section of available products. Build Smarter with Alternative Materials covers materials used in each phase of a project, in order -- from the foundation to the ridge peak.
