Saved me a fortune.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Conservation of Clay and Chalk Buildings (Hardcover)
This excellent book came recommended by the gentleman surveying the cottage I contemplated buying. If it hadn't spent the the time and money buying and then reading this book I would now be taking a long walk off of a short pier both financially and psychiatrically speaking. Needless to say the understanding the book gave me helped me to view the property from a highly critical angle and withdraw from the sale before making a terrible mistake. I would advise everyone to try and obtain a copy, whether by fair or foul, before taking on a clay or chalk building. You will at the very least go into ownership better informed and forewarned of some of the problems that may occur and how to best rectify them. Great reading.
