We have a varied portfolio including the following: Historic and Listed Buildings, Manor Houses, Cottages, Farm Houses, New Eco Builds.


Roofing & Chimneys

As the 'hats' of our properties, roofs are the most important element to keep functioning correctly. The roof protects your property from the weather and if your roof fails, your whole property can be at risk.

Structural Repairs

Structural repairs are normally caused by the rotting of lintels or beams due to wet or very old walls.

Lime Render & Roughcast

Lime render is a surface coating applied to protect the substrate of a building, whether that is made of stone, brick, cob or straw bale.

Lime Plaster

Lime plasters are soft, flexible and breathable and they play an important role in controlling internal moisture levels, keeping historic buildings in good condition.

Lime Plaster

Limewash

Limewash is a traditional, breathable finish for lime plasters and renders, which can be used both inside and outside. It is very soft and under the microscope has a crystalline structure.

Eco Plaster

Eco plasters can be lime based or clay based. They are breathable and much softer than gypsum. Some of the most popular eco plasters are outlined below.

Lime Pointing

All pre-1900 buildings were built with lime and should therefore ideally be pointed with lime too. Cement pointing is very hard and because of its lack of flexibility it will crack over time when used in old properties

Lime Pointing

Damp Repair

Solving damp in period properties requires a thorough understanding of old buildings, the wide variety of materials used in them and the way all of these work, both independently and collectively
