Old house handbook

by Roger Hunt | 23 October 2008
Hardback
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 it's lead from the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (who have approved and authorised this volume), the book's 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. Providing richly and deeply informed practical guidance on everything from breathability and damp to structural movement, roofs, windows and doors, this is the essential reading for anyone with an old house in need of any kind of repair or maintenance.
