Practical Building Conservation
Hardback by Iain McCaig and Brian Ridout (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, Timber deals with wide-ranging use of the material in historic buildings, from vast structural timber-frames through to high-class joinery and simple fixings. Particular attention is paid to how and why timber decays or faults occur, and the methods of assessing and dealing with this. The bulk of the book covers appropriate methods of repair and maintenance.
