Default Finding Experts

I was wondering if anyone knew of expert books that are available about the construction of basements, and the internal workings. I'm curious to find some more information about how this foundational area is put together, what types of things have changed and want to get into the deeper information about this area of the household. Or actually, some construction experts in general would also help me out a bit.

Basement Systems itself has three 90-page full color books that it offers with its free waterproofing estimates- one on crawl spaces, one on basement waterproofing, and one on basement remodeling. They're all surprisingly informative and very palatable to read. Many of our contractors work with all areas of basements- give us a ring and maybe we can help connect you with an expert in your specific area?

If you're looking for more extensive reading, I'd suggest these two books:

and

Also, I'm not a fan of the black and decker series myself, but their books are very popular. You might find it useful:

Good luck!
