Historic building repair and stabilization can be challenging. In today’s world with hundreds of products to do repairs, what’s the best one or approach? Back when your home was built there were few products with hundreds of uses, quite the opposite today.
It’s been said an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It is prudent to have an overall plan in place, prioritized, before major work is begun. We’ve been to many homes where the “repair” was approached with a modern building mind set – using “good hard cement” and “good hard bricks”. The homeowner paid to have the repair work completed but the repair only exacerbated the reoccurring problem and also caused new problems. Not only did the homeowner have to pay again to have the repair done correctly, but they also had to pay for the removal. Thus, paying three times and for damage to other areas.
