Here, for the first time, is a completely authoritative guide on how to look after your old house - whether it's a timber framed medieval cottage, an eighteenth century urban terrace or an example of Victorian or Edwardian speculative development. Taking their lead from the conservation approach of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (who have approved and authorised this volume), the approach is one of respect, restraint and repair rather than 'restoration' which can so easily and permanently destroy the rich historical legacy of any old building. From the foundations to the roof, from the need for modern services to the maintenance of traditional paintwork and finishes, from windows and doors to breathability and damp in walls and floors, this book provides richly and deeply informed practical guidance. It will be essential reading for anyone with an old house in need of any kind of repair or maintenance.

Owners of old houses are often baffled by the confusing advice they receive from their builders, architects or surveyors who may be more familiar with repairing modern buildings than dealing with the issues associated with traditional houses. Old houses generally require a different approach, one, for instance, which takes account of their need to 'breathe'. Modern solutions do not always recognise that need. This book will help owners, builders and all construction professionals make the decisions that are right for old buildings. It illustrates the long term benefits of using more traditional solutions on older houses rather than modern materials like cement based mortars, sealants or impervious paints. It offers practical guidance on: How to get the right professional advice; Legal requirements for listed buildings; Problems with damp and rot; Use of lime mortars, plasters and renders; Why old buildings need to breathe; Planning applications; and, Trees, outbuildings and gardens.

Understanding the unique requirements of traditional buildings is crucial to providing appropriate guidance on their care and repair. This book will help practitioners identify the particular issues relating to older buildings and the problems they may encounter when surveying and repairing them. With the use of examples, the author provides invaluable information on how traditional buildings perform, emphasizing the need for a sensitive and sustainable approach which also takes account of the specific needs of the building. The book examines all aspects to be included in any assessment for survey and repair, and points out in detail the potential pitfalls. It also explores the controversial issues surrounding the treatment of damp and timber decay, advocating solutions that are appropriate to older buildings rather than using standard, often damaging, methods of treatment. The extensive case studies not only illustrate good conservation in practice but also how projects can go badly wrong, and how mistakes could have been avoided. This title explores the causes of movement and the actions required. It advises on alternatives to chemical treatment for damp and timber decay. It provides fully illustrated case studies with numerous photographs. It emphasizes a sustainable approach to conservation. It outlines the key legislation issues. It includes the Historic Buildings Prosecution Fines Database and other useful appendices.

Ideal for students of architectural technology, this volume of the Technologies of Architecture series covers the technologies available and the processes necessary for the conservation of existing buildings and environments. This book provides, in a single text, the tools for students to be able to evaluate such buildings, as well as an extensive understanding of the mechanisms which cause their deterioration and knowledge of the technologies available to correct their status. The ever higher standards set for buildings, especially in energy conservation contexts, demand that practitioners appreciate how the performance of existing structures can be enhanced, which is also covered. Considering the work of conservation within a holistic perspective and historical context, this book is additionally invaluable for architecture and construction students.

Now in its fourth fully revised and updated edition, this practical manual describes and illustrates every aspect of conservation work and will interest anyone responsible for the care and upkeep of a stone-built 18th century building, or with our architectural heritage. The substructure, external walls, rooves, internal details and external works of a Georgian house are studied and explained in great detail, and an entirely new section on decoration and finishes has been added. The Care and Conservation of Georgian Houses is based on the New Town of Edinburgh, described by Lord Clark as 'one of the finest pieces of town planning in Europe'. Produced under the aegis of the Edinburgh New Town Conservation Committee, the book is unsurpassed in the wealth and clarity of its information and illustrations and the excellence of its practical guidance. This fourth edition provides more technical information than previous editions and places greater emphasis on interiors. Edinburgh's 318 hectare New Town, started in 1767, is still largely unspoiled and uniquely a residential central area. It is also an outstanding Conservation Area of international importance. The success of the New Town Conservation Committee since 1970 in safeguarding the listed buildings, and ensuring that they are appropriately repaired, is due to the co-operation and expert knowledge of owners, authorities, amenity societies, architects and contractors who understand and respect the quality of architecture and the forms of construction. This book is evidence of such co-operation; the text, first written in 1976, has been updated three times as the experience of the authors and their advisers increased. This fourth edition has been completely rewritten; each page and illustration has been checked and revised and a new chapter on shop-fronts has been added. This disciplined neo-classical design of the New Town depends on precise and accurate detailing and on the choice of appropriate materials for repairs; this 'maintenance' manual sets out every aspect of typical external and structural repairs, with advice on legislation, grants and procedures for carrying out repairs which, in urban areas, are often shared between several owners. Completely updated with greater emphasis on interiors Acts as an owners guide and professional handbook Gives advice on legislation, grants and the organisation of commercial repairs
