9780004140353: Collins Care and Repair of Period Houses

After the destructive 60s and 70s when it was fashionable to "modernise" properties by covering over or removing old features, the many home-owners today are now keen to restore their homes to their orginal state, not just to add period, but also to increase the value of their property. This text is a comprehensive, photographic guide to renovating and maintaining the decorative architectural features of older houses. It functions as both a sourcebook of historical styles and as a practical manual on the care and repair of houses built between the mid-18th century and the outbreak of World War II. The text includes: external features and roofs - brickwork, stucco, stonework, balconies, gates, railings, decorative woodwork, wooden wall cladding, slate & tiled roofs, shingles, bargeboards, chimneys; interior walls and ceilings - plasterwork, ornamental mouldings, wall tiles, carved woodwork, wall panelling and finishes; floors - flagstones, floorboards, parquet floors, quarry tiles, decorative painting; doors and windows - doorcases and door surrounds, panelled and glazed doors, sash and casement windows, leaded lights, stained and patterned glass, fanlights, shutters, door and window furniture; stairs - wooden staircases, stone steps, balusters, newel posts, handrails; fireplaces - mantelpieces, grates, hearths, stoves, tiled and marble fireplaces.
