AbstractIn the spring of 1961, 278 houses in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, including the Amherst group, were examined and a report was prepared on existing conditions. This report, in effect, is contained in the specifications for the 1961 repainting program and is included as Appendix II to this report. Requirements for surface preparation and repainting are also cited in Appendex II. As these recommendations were subsequently only applied to the Amherst group, it was thought useful to present a paint-performance history of these houses from the time of construction to the time of a condition study made 12 March 1964.
