Publisher's Synopsis

This fully revised and updated book is the authoritative guide on how to look after your old house - whether it is a timber-framed medieval cottage, an eighteenth-century town house or a Victorian or Edwardian terrace.

Written in association with The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, the authors' approach is one of respect, restraint and repair rather than 'restoration', which can so easily and permanently destroy the special qualities of an old building.

From the foundations to the roof, from the need for modern services to traditional paintwork and finishes, from windows and doors to breathability and damp in walls and floors, this handbook provides informed practical guidance. It is essential reading on maintenance and repair for all those with an old house.
