The Old House Web Restoration Guide

The Old House Web has edited the nine-chapter U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Rehab Guide. Our goal is to provide accessible, relevant information specifically for owners, architects, engineers and trades people who focus on restoring or rehabilitating old buildings. Where possible, we also provide links to articles on The Old House Web and elsewhere where readers can seek in-depth guidance.

Organization of the Old House Web Restoration Guide

Each of the nine chapters of the guide is focused on a major building system, providing a survey of materials, techniques and technologies that are relevant to historic or older structures. We have edited these topics based upon the following considerations:

  • Safety
  • Modern building codes
  • Performance
  • Availability of original materials or expertise
  • Affordability
