Practical building conservation: Timber
Part of the Practical Building Conservation series
Timber deals with wide-ranging use of the material in historic buildings, from vast structural timber-frames through to high-class joinery and simple fixings.
Particular attention is paid to how and why timber decays or faults occur, and the methods of assessing and dealing with this.
The bulk of the book covers appropriate methods of repair and maintenance.
