Emergency Repairs for Historic Buildings is a compilation of 12 case studies that emphasize the necessity of emergency repairs for historic buildings in poor condition. These buildings are defined in this book as listed buildings in England, together with those which, although unlisted, add an historical dimension to their environment. Emergency repairs could consist of permanent or temporary work. Permanent work should always be carried out according to the best historic buildings practice. Temporary work is second best made necessary by lack of money but having the advantage of speed. In an emergency, this is sometimes the most important factor as decay spreads very quickly, especially in empty buildings. Chapter 2 of this book provides guidelines for temporary repair, which indicate that even this work should be the best quality of its kind. This book mainly relates to the great majority of buildings, rather than to major country houses, historic engineering works, or ancient monuments. This text is a useful and informative reference for individuals or students who conduct research on studies relating to architectural or historical arts.Whichever alternative is used for a temporary roof covering, all the joints should be lapped by 150mm and taped against wind lift ...
