Historic Preservation Library

Historic Preservation Library


Simplify the complex task of specifying historic preservation, rehabilitation, restoration, and reconstruction projects with this specialized library of historic resources. The 85+ sections in the Historic Preservation Library are organized according to historic treatments recognized by The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties. Easily specify the repair, replacement, and cleaning “work results” you need for physical objects and special labor requirements.

MasterSpec® gives you the tools you need to create quality historic preservation specs in less time. It is your ONE source for the most thoroughly written specifications, extensive background research, and automated editing software — all on the same, user-friendly screen.

You may add on a subset of this Historic Preservation Library to supplement your Architecture Library or any other MasterSpec library.
