Haynes Period Property Manual Care And Repair Of Old Houses

Description:

Britain has a wonderfully rich stock of period houses - everything from medieval cottages to Georgian townhouses and Edwardian mansions. But many of these historic properties are now at risk. Some are unwittingly damaged by well-meaning owners or incompetent builders; others suffer long-term deterioration where mortgage lenders have imposed quick-fix 'remedies'. Despite being some of the most sustainable buildings on the planet, many old houses are now being subjected to ill-advised works to upgrade thermal efficiency, resulting in the destruction of the very qualities that make them so appealing, slashing their values. Haynes have come to the rescue with this clearly written, lavishly illustrated manual explaining the correct approach to care and repair - covering the full range of traditional materials.
