Our widely acknowledged expertise has allowed us the privilege of working in some of our most important heritage buildings including numerous churches, stately homes, historic municipal buildings and scheduled monuments; not to mention countless beautiful private residences.
Plumbing and heating installation has been our mainstay for many years and still employs our skills frequently; however, our passion for leadwork restoration and the conservation of historic buildings has always inspired us. It takes many years, great patience and perseverance to learn the skills of a lead craftsman but once mastered, a highly skilled leadworker becomes a true artisan.
Conservation & Restorative Work
The UK has a rich and wonderful history, much of which can be attributed to its magnificent buildings; many of these buildings are protected and restored with the help of trusts and conservation bodies such as English Heritage and the National Trust.
We are proud to have worked with these UK organisations on many occasions to conserve some of our most important buildings for generations to enjoy. Intricate lead detailing can be difficult to restore to its full glory, but it’s something that our skilled contractors have managed to perfect over the years!
