Heritage Conservation Carpentry
So what is heritage conservation joinery, it’s a profession that offers to restore timber with our joinery work in Britain’s listed buildings to preserve the building’s physical and historical integrity using when possible the original oak timber & masonry materials.
As with any other properties, listed or not, the main culprit for problems with woodwork is lack of maintenance and water, we work alongside our customers advising on possible eventualities and a maintenance prevention program, and our specialised team of experts can make repairs in keeping with the building history.
We care immensely about the conservation of historical buildings, with our project work these buildings will last for generations to come so they can enjoy them too.
Historic Timber Building Restoration
Luckily in the United Kingdom, we still have remaining many historical buildings dating back as far as 1200 AD, historical timber building conservation is an integral part of our business, as a company we pool all our resources to keep Britain’s heritage alive.
It’s important that any damaged historical features rather than be replaced should be repaired, if a feature is not possible to repair we will then with our woodworking skills replicate the damaged part with both colour and materials to be as identical in looks as the original.
We are very aware of any new additions should always be compatible with existing features so that we can preserve the historical integrity of timber buildings, conservation is our number one priority.
Period Furniture Restoration
Restoring period furniture is very satisfying, from an antique chest of drawers to an antique rocking chair our crew of dedicated woodworkers can restore any antique furniture to its former glory by replacing worn-out parts in such a way they still retain that period look and our attention to detail is second to none.
Our skills allow us to make bespoke furniture into a style of your choice, whether it’s Victorian or Edwardian period furniture you want, our skilled craftsmen can deliver any item befitting to its chosen period.
Let’s Keep history alive
As with most of the population, we think conserving all of the histories and historical artifacts that we still have around us is super important, it’s all part of our history from farm properties to cathedrals, stately homes and castles plus the furniture that lies within its walls, it’s our heritage and needs to be preserved, as a company heavily involved in conservation-restoration we feel it’s our duty and we are truly passionate about conservation and restoring of our heritage, and the keeping of our past and history.
