Period Property Manual: Care & repair of old houses by Ian Rock
Britain has a wonderfully rich stock of period houses. These properties are often unwittingly damaged, some by well-meaning owners or incompetent builders, others as a result of mortgage lenders insisting on misguided quick-fix 'remedies' that cause long-term deterioration. There is widespread lack of knowledge about how to maintain period properties but Haynes has now come to the rescue with this clearly written Manual showing the correct approach to care and repair. This is essential reading for anyone who owns, or would like to own, a period house. 'essential reading...this Manual will guide you safely through'
