"The book provides a insight into knowledge that is fundamental to anyone in a position to make decisions on intervention and repair within a historic building."
"This book provides technical and informative material to a reasonable depth, but is still suitable for both the knowledgeable student of building conservation and the non-technician."
"On the evidence of this volume and the previous ones, the series does appear to be developing into a comprehensive overview of conservation practice."
"...given the specialist nature of much of its content it does offere solid value at £45.00"
"As a lecturer in Building and Conservation Practice, the reviewer would consider this volume of all the books in the set thus far for use as a core text for students, as it does give avaluable and concise insight into those traditional methods which make the maintenance, repair, alternation and conservation of historic buildings different to that of more modern structures."
