French edition. As the historical and commercial value of old buildings rises, so does the demand for comprehensive restoration information. Well-Preserved is the standard guide for preserving historic homes and buildings. This book uses compelling arguments to establish the importance of architectural preservation for a wide variety of buildings in urban, rural, and suburban environments. Examples of 23 broad architectural styles are illustrated along with their cultural and historical significance.

Combining concise, clear text with abundant photographic examples, the book presents planning advice for assessing, protecting, designing, repairing, and enhancing heritage structures of any age and style.

Illustrated chapters cover the elements of foundation, floor and wall stabilization, roofing, masonry, exterior and interior woodwork, metalwork, stucco, concrete, composites and plaster, windows, entrances, exterior paint, interior finishes, and fixtures.
