Book cover for Extreme Weather Hits home by John C Banta

Extreme Weather Hits Home prepares you for violent weather events like floods, tornadoes, ice storms, and hurricanes. Climate change is frequently more subtle, but its effects on our homes and properties can still be devastating.


Nearly 50 percent of North America has a potential for structural damage from shifting moisture in expansive clay soils, a condition that is already costing billions of dollars each year. Humidity is projected to increase, trapping moisture in wall cavities and resulting in deterioration. As the climate changes and moisture levels adjust, there are a number of proactive steps that can be taken to prevent or lessen expensive repairs.
