Bird's-Eye View: The Science Behind Construction And Contracting

Hi! I'm AJ and I have an unusual hobby. I love abseiling down buildings - legally, of course. It is a growing tourist activity and I have been lucky enough to try it in many parts of the world. When you are on top of a building and then making your descent, you really have time to admire the overall construction and materials used.

5 Advantages of Basement Waterproofing During Construction

Underground water can seep through cracks in a building and cause flooding in the basement. If unchecked, the water can lead to severe mould and structural damage if there is no waterproofing.
