Building Conservations & Restorations
Building conservation is a general term for the sensitive repair and restoration of buildings and historic structures. Many trades, crafts and professionalism are required to conserve a whole building, especially listed and historic buildings that have unique and exact requirements.
Stone Restoration & Conservation
Buildings have many years of particulate pollution and weathering effects apparent on their façades which can cause various problems including decayed stonework, structural issues and ingress of water in to the interior. There are not many ways of stopping the weathering effects on buildings but the results can be removed and the problems delayed and even mitigated completely.
