Sandusky Building Doctor Clinic
Seminar Thursday, March 13
Consultations Friday, March 14
The Old House Guild of Sandusky and the Ohio Historic Preservation Office of the Ohio Historical Society will sponsor a Building Doctor Clinic for old-building owners in the Sandusky, Ohio, area on March 13-14, 2014.
The clinic begins with a free seminar on Thursday evening, March 13, from 7-9 p.m. at the Sandusky Library, 114 W. Adams St., Sandusky. Open to all old-building owners in the area, the seminar will feature guidelines for renovation projects and ways to solve some of the most common problems of buildings dating from 1800 to 1955.
On Friday, March 14, from 9 a.m.-2 p.m., the Building Doctors will visit pre-1955 buildings within five miles of Sandusky, advising owners on specific technical or design problems by appointment. The ‘doctors’ examine all kinds of older buildings. Some of the things that typically call for an on-site examination include persistent peeling paint or flaking plaster, a wet basement, deteriorating masonry, and plans for remodeling, additions, or demolitions.
