I will need to close the main water shut off value to my house before starting work on kitchen plumbing. It is town water, and the main shut off value is just inside the foundation.
After the kitchen work is done, is any special procedure recommended for opening the main shut off value?
I am reading that a wave of high water pressure could cause damage to older plumbing when the main value is turned back on. Recommendations including slowly turning on the valve, and having faucets initially left open.

It is an old house, and some of the plumbing looks fragile. I have yet to find a consistent answer.
