Historic Preservation Guidelines


A guide for rehabilitating historic buildings

SKU: N/A Category:


Originally published by the Southwestern Pennsylvania Heritage Preservation Commission, this guide for rehabilitating historic buildings is a reference text. Taking a building part by part, it addresses the best “fix” for each. It also provides a second and third choice for those parts. Addressed in the guide are: walls, windows, doors, porches, roofing, additions, alterations, site work, paint and more. Although originally published in the 1980’s, the information is still valid, even if the cost estimates are no longer relevant. Many black and white photos, 111 pages.
