This helpful new book by the founder of Eco Concrete Design is now available as a read-it-right-away download on It covers everything you need to know to get your home in tip top shape.

Learn from others’ mistakes, so you don’t have to repeat them, including:

  • flooded basements that resemble swimming pools.
  • houses that slide right off their foundations.
  • awkwardly-sized doorways, staircases and hallways.
  • electrical emergencies in-the-making.
  • weird windows.
  • exploded concrete.

Almost four decades as a general contractor means you’ve seen it all. Plus patched it up, secured it down, shored it up, sheared it down. And generally righted some strange construction wrongs.

Too many homeowners – longtime and about-to-be – just don’t know about the main risks to their homes. And what to do about them. However, now you get to benefit from 35+ years experience.
But not in a long, bogged-down-in-details textbook kind of way.

Rather, Disaster-Proof Your Home is designed to be an easy-to-read overview filled with helpful suggestions, affordable tips, and can-do ways to best prepare your home against threats like:

  • Earthquakes
  • Fire
  • Landslides
  • Mudslides
  • Leaking
  • Basement Flooding
  • Extreme Winds
  • Rats & Rodents
  • Flying Debris

Granted, some threats aren’t directly life-threatening, like a leaking basement or rat infestation, but leaving them unaddressed means that when a truly devastating event does occur – a landslide, flash flood, hurricane, tornado, wind storm or a massive earthquake – your home could be compromised by weak spots. Weak spots that could have been fixed or prevented prior to failure.
