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. Explores the causes of movement and the actions required Advises on alternatives to chemical treatment for damp and timber decay Provides fully illustrated case studies with numerous photographs Emphasizes a sustainable approach to conservation Outlines the key legislation issues Includes the Historic Buildings Prosecution Fines Database and other useful appendices About the author: Richard Oxley is a Chartered Surveyor and independent Historic Building Consultant.
