Maintenance advice

Historic buildings have different maintenance needs from modern buildings; they were designed to perform in a different way. This can be confusing and rather daunting when you are left to your own devices.

The good news is that, looked after sympathetically, they are very robust - your building has already survived hundreds of years longer than most houses built today are expected to last. On the other hand the main cause of damage to historic buildings is well meant, but inappropriate, care and maintenance. This can lead to problems which develop surprisingly quickly.

PHBC can advise you:

  • How can you best care for your building?
  • What is important to look out for?
  • What kind of heating and ventilation is appropriate?
  • What building or decoration materials should be used?
  • How do you select appropriate contractors or suppliers?
