This Old Church

The Indispensable Guide for Restoring Church Buildings
  • By Ion Grumeza
""From the squeaky floors to the crumbling towers and from peeling paint to the falling ceiling, parishioners love to talk about any restoration work, as many have already had similar experiences with their own homes. But to move from talking to action is a long and costly road. Proper planning of any restoration work is a must to ensure good results. Such planning requires many groups of competent people."" --Ion Grumeza This Old Church is not a book about how to build a new church building; it's a book about how to restore the church building you already have. Grumeza has taken his many years of experience as a church restoration planner and estimator and compiled his knowledge into one handy, how-to guide on restoring church buildings. The book: - describes in thorough detail the logistical procedures to be followed before, during, and after the restoration process - includes advice on how to relate to contractors, to your congregation, and to the public - offers a wealth of easy-to-comprehend information for the various phases of a complicated and costly project Through this guide, Grumeza shows how to do everything from identifying the building's problems to choosing the right general contractor, and provides helpful checklists every step of the way. Also includes photographs that show the processes Grumeza outlines in this handy resource. Ion Grumeza is a restoration consultant and contractor who specializes in restoring old churches. Based in Connecticut, Grumeza has been involved in major restoration and renovation projects at Yale University.
