Building Doctor Clinic, Hamilton
May 16, 2013 - May 17, 2013
The Building Doctors of the Ohio Historic Preservation Office of the Ohio Historical Society are holding clinics in Hamilton, Port, Clinton, and Xenia in 2013.
The “doctors” work in teams, teaching old-building owners how to recognize and solve some of the most commons sources of problems in maintaining older buildings and how to make informed decisions about repairs and improvements.
Each Building Doctor Clinic begins with a free seminar on topics like peeling paint and failing plaster, wet basements, deteriorating masonry, windows, wood issues, and bring buildings built before 1955 up to date without sacrificing historical integrity. One the following day, the Building Doctors make the rounds of ailing buildings within five miles of the city center where the seminar is held to examine problems and prescribe cures. Consultations are free, but you must preregister for an appointment and attend the seminar to qualify. The Building Doctors visit all kinds of pre-1955 buildings: schools, churches, factories, stores, offices, farm building,s and homes.
