Mortars, Renders & Plasters
Practical Building Conservation is a ten volume series that looks at the conservation of building materials and systems. It builds on our research and field experience and is aimed at those who work on or look after historic buildings: primarily architects, surveyors, engineers, conservators, contractors and conservation officers, but also owners, curators, students and researchers.
Mortars, Renders and Plasters provides a broad perspective of contemporary conservation theory and practice not otherwise found in one publication. It describes the history, physical properties, and deterioration of these important materials. Methods of assessing condition and evaluating options for treatment and repair are discussed. A range of practical conservation techniques and maintenance strategies are also described.
