Conditions Surveys

A conditions survey is often the first step in assessing the conservation needs of a building and is essentially an investigation of material surfaces. For an exterior conditions survey, conservators search for signs that weather resistance has been compromised and for deterioration of building materials that may be hazardous. Interior surveys may encompass any surface – floors, ceilings, walls, fixtures, and so forth.
