PSPC Property Repair Seminar: Caring for your Historic Building

Supported by: Perth City Heritage Fund and Fife & Tayside Traditional Building Forum

Buildings constructed before 1919 are full of traditional features that make them great places to live.  Such character also brings specific needs and requirements when it comes to the maintenance and repair of historic buildings. If you own or are considering a historic home, this evening of short talks and Q&A is for you, offering key guidance at an introductory level to help you maintain the condition and value of a historic property. Come along in National Apprenticeship Week and pick-up some pointers from industry professionals speaking on a range of useful topics:

  • Guidance on Maintaining Traditional Buildings from Historic Environment Scotland;
  •   Information about the Scottish Tenement Act and what it means for the maintenance and repair of Historic tenements;
  • An introduction to ‘Under One Roof’: practical online resources for owners of historic homes;
  • Stone Repairs;

  • Maintaining traditional windows;
  • An introduction to the Perth City Heritage Fund: grant support for historic building repairs.
