The Repair And Maintenance Of Houses

£35.00

Product description

Despite the fact that one third of the total expenditure on building work is devoted to repair and maintenance, there is very little material in book form on the subject compared with that devoted to methods of new construction. Although the focus of public interest in the preservation of older buildings is now very strong, earlier forms of construction are becoming less well documented. and accordingly tend to be lost to the student and practitioner. Yet these methods must be understood before any analysis of the defects in buildings can be undertaken.
Accordingly this book will prove an invaluable aid to all those who have to deal with the repair and improvement of existing buildings.
