Both this booklet and the companion Below-floor work booklet provide an introduction to the more detailed Repairing and rebuilding houses affected by the Canterbury earthquakes guidance. The Above-floor work guide covers the repair and replacement of structural framing, bracing, chimneys and fireplaces, and retaining walls for buildings in the Canterbury green zone.
