Maintenance Matters

Routine maintenance is probably the most important action that you can take to protect your historic building.

There are many good reasons for undertaking regular building maintenance. It can help you to;

  •  Preserve your historic building for future generations to use and enjoy
  •  Save money through repair rather than replacement of features such as windows
  •  Prevent more serious problems and avoid the cost and disruption of   major repairs  
  •  Maintain your building's appearance and contribute to a sense of pride in the  community.

By spotting minor problems early you can prevent serious damage and the need for expensive repairs later on. For top tips on looking after your building or if you need information on roofs, walls, joinery etc go to Cadw's maintenance matters website: http://www.maintenancematterswales.org.uk Expert advice is coupled with photographs, drawings and video clips and even the opportunity to create a customized maintenance plan for your building which you can use in your regular maintenance inspections.
