Free on-site consultations still available
TIFFIN, OHIO – March 9, 2019 – The Ohio History Connection’s State Historic Preservation Office, Tiffin-Seneca Economic Partnership, Tiffin Historic Trust and Seneca Regional Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Services are to sponsor a Building Doctor Clinic for owners of older buildings in Tiffin, Ohio, on May 2 and May 3.
The clinic begins with a free seminar at 7 p.m. May 2 at the Tiffin–Seneca Public Library’s Frost Kalnow Room, 77 Jefferson St. The seminar is open to the public and will feature guidelines for renovation projects and ways to solve some of the most common problems of buildings dating from 1800 to 1955.
The Building Doctors will visit pre-1955 buildings within five miles of Tiffin 9 a.m.-3 p.m. May 3, advising owners on specific technical problems by appointment. The “doctors” examine all kinds of older buildings. Some of the things that typically call for an on-site examination include persistent peeling paint or flaking plaster, a wet basement or deteriorating masonry and plans for additions.
The seminar and on-site consultations with the Building Doctors are free with advance registration. For more information, visit www.building-doctor.org or call 800.499.2470 or 614.298.2000, or click here for online registration. You also can contact Downtown Main Street Manager for Tiffin-Seneca Economic Partnership Amy Reinhart at 419.447.3831.
The Building Doctor program is made possible in part by a grant from the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Historic Preservation Fund, administered by the Ohio History Connection’s State Historic Preservation Office. Each clinic is also made possible by support from local cosponsors.
