The National Park Service provides extensive guidance on preserving, rehabilitating and restoring historic buildings. With 50 online publications, the purpose is to help historic building owners recognize and resolve common problems prior to work. The briefs are especially useful to Historic Preservation Tax Incentives Program applicants because they recommend methods and approaches for rehabilitating historic buildings that are consistent with their historic character.
From preserving slate roofs and wood porches to making old windows new and historic homes more energy efficient, there is a lot to gain from this valuable resource.
