Book Description The Crowood Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Whether you live in a Georgian town house, a Victorian terraced property or a 1930s semi, when it comes to carrying out repair and refurbishment work it is always better to use original materials. Salvaged items of the same vintage as the house are more likely to be in keeping with the building because their surface ageing makes them match and blend better than modern materials, and they may be of higher quality and craftsmanship. This informative guide tells you everything you need to know about tracking down and purchasing reclaimed building materials of all kinds, including bricks, roof and floor tiles, slates, timber, doors and door furniture and much more.
