Description


Excerpt from Architects' Manual of Painting and Decoration: Containing Full Specifications for the Information and Convenience of Architects and Builders

Of late years, we have had many inquiries, both by mail and in person, as well as through our agents, as to the best manner of specifying "painters' work." These inquiries have come from prominent architects and builders, and have been answered, individually, to the best of our ability, and our efforts in this direction seem to have been appreciated. Although we have never pretended to give instructions to an architect, regarding specifications, we believe that an outline of something in the way of painter's and decorator's specifications will be welcomed by him; not in the light of a line of instructions, teaching him this part of his business, but rather as an aid in the matter of technicalities - saving time and annoyance in looking after a painter whose work may be so full of "outlets" that the good intentions of the architect become crossed, as it were, and a result inferior to that aimed at is obtained. Specifications are like lawyers' documents; an assailable clause or an error here and there, will tend to invalidate the whole claim and make the writing useless.
