  • Jason has a Heritage NVQ level 3 in Solid Plastering

For many restorations local materials are used, with the result that the buildings are restored in harmony with the environment. This includes using granite, lime mortar, lime rendering and oak pegs.

Traditional mass-masonry wall construction (which includes most walls built before 1919) works on the basis that moisture entering a wall is able to escape in the form of water and water vapour as easily as possible. Lime mortars can readily handle the transmission between the inside and outside of a masonry wall, owing to the complex interconnected pore structure of masonry.

Our Services

what we do best.

Restoration

Restoration is a major part of our work, it is the process of returning a building to its former state.

Lime work

Lime allows the building to breathe, it lets moisture in and out, moves with the building and is far less brittle

paint removal

Paint removal for the use on surfaces such as brick, stone, concrete, tiled, glazed and encaustic wood

stone work

Stone Work is vital to us as the methodology we use has been carried out for hundreds of years

lime plastering

Lime plastering is important to conservation work. Preparation is key.

Stone Cleaning

We recommend the Doff for the use on surfaces such as brick, stone, concrete, tiled, glazed and encaustic wood

We carry full public liability insurance

Restoring the cornicing in the main drawing room was a job we were very nervous about - the actual cornicing is bespoke because of its complex pattern and with the added headache that the walls/ceiling were out of square, it was a really difficult job. The result is truly impressive, the quality of the restoration is of the highest order-  you cannot see the joins. It was a true labour of love and an incredible piece of work - thank you Jason and Tony.
