The Building Doctor Is In

Ohio Historical Soc.SIEDC is proud to announce a partnership with the Tiffin Historic Trust and the Seneca Regional Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Services to bring the Building Doctors, a program of the Ohio Historic Preservation Office, to Tiffin!

The Building Doctors will be hosting an informative two-hour seminar on caring for older buildings the evening of July 21 at the Tiffin-Seneca Public Library. This seminar will address issues such as peeling paint, failing plaster, wet basements, deteriorating masonry, damaged wood, window repair, and many other topics. Those interested in a consultation the following day must attend the seminar.

Friday, July 22, the Doctors will visit ten buildings to provide a free consultation. They are available to visit a variety of types of buildings built before 1955. Due to the limitedBuilding Doctor 1 number of consultations, applications are to be sent to SIEDC, and the SIEDC Downtown Design Committee will choose the top ten for the Doctors to visit.

Applications can be downloaded here, or picked up at the SIEDC office (19 W. Market St.). Please submit applications to Amy Reinhart. Be prepared to provide a picture of the structure and description of the issue.
