Abstract

This paper presents the results of pilot survey analysis on defects and deterioration in traditional timber mosques. In conservation practice, it is crucial to understand the type, and cause of defects which the information will be use for improvement stage. In addition, the repair works are dependent on the survey findings, therefore, any repairing are accordingly to the state of building conditions. A total of 52 mosques particularly design with traditional vernacular architecture have been chosen for the study to identify the common problems and causes of timber defects in buildings. The result, most of the defects are found on the roof part, caused by existence of dampness which create greater damages. Overall, building are in moderate conditions, though some of it are in lack of maintenance and mostly had undergo for material transformation.
