Glass and Glazing looks at the conservation of one of the most important building materials, and its use in windows, roofing and walling. It considers the technological evolution of glass and glazing systems, the processes causing deterioration, and the practical application and long-term implications of common conservation materials and methods, as well as of alterations to improve performance.

About the Author:

The contents reflect the work of the Building Conservation and Research Team, their colleagues at Historic England, and their consultants and researchers, who together have many decades of accumulated experience in dealing with deteriorating building materials and systems of all types. This multi-disciplinary team of architects, surveyors, conservators and scientists are responsible for standard setting and research across a wide range of Historic England activities. The team specialises in dealing with the practical, technical and scientific aspects of building materials decay and their treatment. The aim has been to provide practical advice by advocating a common approach of firstly understanding the material or building element and why it is deteriorating, and then dealing with the causes. The books concentrate on those aspects which are significant in conservation terms, and reflect the requests for information received by Historic England.

Review:

'[The Practical Building Conservation volumes] offer considerable information and advice on many aspects of conservation. Great emphasis is placed in all the volumes on making the reader familiar with the material in question, giving them as much information and direction as possible to allow them to understand what they are dealing with; gives a comprehensive 'hands on' approach; solutions are found, methods described and practical tips freely given. It should be kept on the bookshelf within reach of most practising professionals in the field.' - Jane Jones-Warner RIBA SCA AABC IHBC, Member RIBA Conservation Group

'The layout of the volume is clear and accessible; lavishly illustrated both with excellent quality photographs and diagrams. This is a valuable and essential tool for the architect and architectural conservator as well as the responsible custodian.' - Cornerstone

'My overriding impression of this series is that it is comprehensive, well set out and easy to follow, and it should be of interest both to all involved in the repair and maintenance of historic buildings, and to the casual reader. Each volume stands alone or as part of a set. This represents a substantial body of work in the field of building conservation that is unlikely to be repeated in the near future. The tables and technical drawings are clear, and some of the photographs included are remarkable. The amount of information within each volume is staggering and must represent the nearest thing to a one-stop-shop for historic building practitioners.' - Context
