Architectural Woodwork Details for Construction Stephen P. Major If you're spending too much time chasing down information on architectural woodwork and its many synthetic counterparts--and still not finding all the answers you need to do the job--you can stop looking now. Architectural Woodwork: Details for Construction is the one-stop resource you've been looking for. Written by a builder for builders, architects, and designers, it's the first book exclusively devoted to the selection, design, detailing, and installation of both interior and exterior architectural woodwork. What's more, it also covers synthetic wood substitutes such as aluminum millwork, vinyl siding, and styrene reproduction mouldings, and analyzes how each of these compares to traditional wood products. Whether you're designing windows or walls, doors or decks, floors or fireplace trim, you'll find everything you need here to translate your design ideas into real woodwork. Just flip to the chapter on the type of woodwork you want and you'll find:
* an explanation of the woodwork's practical function
* characteristics of construction materials, and why some are better for the job
* an illustrated listing of choices available to you
* commonly encountered problems
* design considerations
* and construction details.
Convenient pro-and-con charts make the advantages and disadvantages of materials and styles easy to compare. Whatever your priority--durability, cost, safety, aesthetics--you'll find choices that work for you. In no time at all, you'll learn how to master every phase of a project with the aid of clearly labeled, detailed cross-section construction drawings. And you'll get expert help on the special problems posed by curves and exterior protection. Armed with the practical why and how-to information in this book, you'll know what to look for, what questions to ask, and where not to cut corners on cost. Most important, all this information is in one place, in a format that's uncluttered and easy to read. Don't get sidetracked by time-consuming research when you've got the real work ahead of you. Get Architectural Woodwork.
