Replacement in Kind

Replacement component should match the original exactly, including but not limited to: in size, shape, profile, detailing, strength, durability, color, porosity, texture, and finish.

Replacement in kind is most typically used when a existing component is desired, but is too damaged to repair. This includes original or otherwise significant fabric. It also includes any existing fabric that is to continue to match its surroundings. For example, damaged or missing bricks within a brick wall that is otherwise in good condition are to be replaced in kind.
