Disaster Proof Your Home

This helpful new book by the founder of Eco Concrete Design is now available as a read-it-right-away download on Amazon.com. 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.
