Practical Building Conservation

Hardback by David Odgers and Alison Henry (Volume Editors)

Get from publisher

Practical Building Conservation is a ten-part 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.

This volume, Stone, considers the wide variety of its historical uses, from simple masonry walling through to elaborate carving and decoration. In particular, it looks at why it decays or fails and how to assess and understand the causes, before concentrating on the practical methods of treatment, repair and maintenance.
