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 their lead from the conservation approach of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (who have approved and authorised this volume), the 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.

This book provides richly and deeply informed practical guidance, with sections including:

Breathability and Damp
Structural Movement
Roofs
Timber and Carpentry
Windows Doors and joinery.

It will be essential reading for anyone with an old house in need of any kind of repair or maintenance.
