Appears on pages(s):
Maintenance and repair have much in common and in many cases it is difficult to say whether the remedial work being done is one or the other. In any case, the difference is largely one of degret and the methods are essentially the same. The paper makes no attempt to separate the two, for t he principles underlying both maintenance and repair work are the same and similar methods and materials are used. Author classifies the various methods under the headings of surface treatments, waterproofing, pointing and caulking, patching, surfacing with mortar coatings, and replacement; he then discusses each method in detail and describes some typical repair and maintenance jobs.
