Heritage and Architectural Repairs
In an ever-changing world, the preservation of heritage buildings/structures is very important in providing a sense of identity and continuity for future generations. Heritage buildings/structures represent the past history and culture of our nation; they are physical links to our past and contribute to our cultural and economic well-being.
When are heritage and architectural repairs needed?
The original construction materials of heritage buildings/structures are subject to a natural process of degradation over time, which is accelerated by chemical, physical and biological events. When these defects go unattended, the building/structure is left with extensive and unavoidable damage to its’ fabric. Consequently, modest spending on regular repairs will reduce the potential for costly repairs in the future, protect the fabric of the building and save money in the long term.
The repairs themselves must be completed in such a way so as to ensure that the life of the building/structure is extended and remains in keeping with its original structure, historic character and features.
