Britain has a wonderfully rich stock of period houses - everything from medieval cottages to Georgian townhouses and Edwardian mansions. But many of these historic properties are now at risk. Some are unwittingly damaged by well-meaning owners or incompetent builders; others suffer long-term deterioration where mortgage lenders have imposed quick-fix 'remedies'. Despite being some of the most sustainable buildings on the planet, many old houses are now being subjected to ill-advised works to upgrade thermal efficiency, resulting in the destruction of the very qualities that make them so appealing, slashing their values. Haynes have come to the rescue with this clearly written, lavishly illustrated manual explaining the correct approach to care and repair - covering the full range of traditional materials. Every old house has a story to tell, so Haynes also show how to explore your home's history and strip back modern finishes to reveal long lost original features. This comprehensive manual is essential reading whether you want to get your hands dirty or just want to understand how old houses work and how to go about employing specialist craftsmen.

About the Author:

Ian Alistair Rock is a chartered surveyor and the author of several popular Haynes House Manuals. After witnessing the neglect and unnecessary destruction of historic buildings in the late 1980s, Ian was inspired to start his own business to secure their future through repair, conservation and conversion. Today he is the director of a residential surveying consultancy, (recently advising Channel 4 on their Blitz Street TV series with Tony Robinson), and a well-known speaker at property conferences.
