All buildings are subject to deterioration over time and require periodic maintenance to keep them in sound condition. Deferred maintenance is the cause behind most of the building/systems failures that require major restorations to be undertaken. A maintenance plan outlines routine and cyclical maintenance tasks for a historic building or group of buildings and serves as a guide when scheduling and budgeting building maintenance in compliance with the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.
This service is offered to historical societies, house museums, and private homeowners. Hartgen can prepare maintenance plans for all types of historic structures.
