   WE OFFER A SERVICE TAILORED TO YOUR OLD PROPERTY

  • helping to select decoration, repair and maintenance that works with the fabric of old buildings - technically and visually
     

  • avoiding incompatible modern materials and methods - such as those that can prevent old buildings from 'breathing'
     

  • adapting for modern living without damaging the original fabric or appearance - with designs and specifications based on our experience with old buildings

 

   OLD HOUSE OWNER ?  WE CAN HELP YOU...

  • to use appropriate maintenance and decoration that works better and looks better and which should maintain the life, visual and historical appeal and the value of your home
     

  • increase insulation and energy efficiency - to prepare for higher fuel bills and likely legislation - while trying to avoid damaging side-effects such as condensation
     

  • assess the way your old house is coping with anything from dampness to modern occupancy - and provide a 'road map' for its future maintenance and decoration that you can apply over time

 

   RESPONSIBLE FOR COMMERCIAL OLD PROPERTIES ?

  • if your customers are attracted by your building's age and character then we can advise on keeping things authentic
     

  • do you need advice relating to conservation areas and listed buildings or require the preparation of a conservation plan, statement of significance or other historical assessment for planning purposes?
     

  • old buildings are a financial and environmental investment - it is becoming more difficult to justify demolition or extreme alteration when knowledge, imagination and new adaptable technologies can now be applied instead
