Abstract:This guide provides practical information about the construction of quality residential concrete. It covers concrete work for one- and two-family dwellings with a maximum height of two stories above grade and a basement that is either cast-in-place or placed as precast elements. Information on materials, proportions, production, delivery, and testing is provided. Separate chapters on footings, walls, and slabs provide information on subgrade, forms, reinforcement, placement, consolidation, finishing, and curing. Special considerations regarding insulation and hot and cold weather are included. Common problems and their repair are also addressed. The discussion of specific design provisions and all drawings provided by this guide are intended to offer illustrations of typical practice and should not be interpreted as meeting the requirements of specific codes or project specifications. Applicable codes and construction documents take precedence over the information contained in this document.
