Advice Series: Maintenance
There is no such thing as a maintenance-free building. All building materials decay to different extents due to sunlight, rain and wind. Whether historic or not, all buildings need regular maintenance. However, this guide is mainly concerned with traditionally-built buildings - those built of the materials and methods that were generally used before concrete and cement came into widespread use from the middle of the twentieth century onwards.
The Advice Series is a series of illustrated booklets published by the Architectural Heritage Advisory Unit of the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government. The booklets are designed to guide those responsible for historic buildings and how best to repair and maintain their properties.
