Period Property Manual (New Ed)
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.

The Victorian House Manual (2nd Edition
How They Were Built, Improvements & Refurbishment, Solutions to All Common Defects Thinking of buying a Victorian or Edwardian house? Or maybe you already own one? Either way, this clearly written manual explains all you need to know about the care and repair of these classic properties. Today, many houses of this age are in need of extensive updating and maintenance, having suffered years of neglect. Some have been damaged by misguided home improvements or botched repairs using the wrong materials. Even newly refurbished properties can sometimes conceal dangerous structural alterations and shoddy build-quality. This unique manual provides detailed, expert advice, backed up with clear how to colour photographs, describing where to check for the critical danger signs and how to fix all common defects.
