The original and definitive reference for restoring and preserving old buildings.

As the historical and commercial value of old buildings rises, so does the demand for comprehensive restoration information. Well-Preserved is the standard guide for preserving historic homes and buildings. This book uses compelling arguments to establish the importance of architectural preservation for a wide variety of buildings in urban, rural, and suburban environments. Examples of 23 broad architectural styles are illustrated along with their cultural and historical significance.

Combining concise, clear text with abundant photographic examples, the book presents planning advice for assessing, protecting, designing, repairing, and enhancing heritage structures of any age and style.

Illustrated chapters cover the elements of foundation, floor and wall stabilization, roofing, masonry, exterior and interior woodwork, metalwork, stucco, concrete, composites and plaster, windows, entrances, exterior paint, interior finishes, and fixtures.

Used around the world, Well Preserved is indispensable to:

  • Historical home and building owners
  • Architects and engineers
  • Heritage organizations and consultants
  • Municipal officials and community planners
  • Builders, contractors and construction trades
  • Enthusiasts and volunteers

From the Author:

Well-Preserved is the book you need if, say, you're an architect working with an owner of an old house, or some historic frontages on a main street, or an old industrial waterfront. But it's also the book you need if you're the owner and you need to figure out what your architect just told you about your lovingly crafted woodwork -- or your leaking roof.

Perhaps you're the contractor who needs to do the work right the first time, every time. Or you're the student wanting to know where to look for the histories that account for what your community looks like. Or you need to understand the principles for historic preservation, architectural conservation, cultural heritage, building maintenance, environmental planning, and the like.

The book is a wide-ranging catalog of what's interesting and important about old buildings and heritage landscapes, what to do with them, how to do those things right, and how to learn more in order to do better. It's extensively illustrated, with a built-in set of principles and with a large digest of techniques and information resources to help you make your own how-to manual, from planning to painting.

Well-Preserved is a practical common reference for the many people who appreciate and work on historic buildings, whether grand or commonplace. The cultural heritage of architecture, streets, and landscapes is a non-renewable resource -- conserving and maintaining it is good for the environment, good for your communities, and when done well, pretty good-looking.
