We are able to assess frames in need of repair and provide likely costs of any repairs needed, we can also assist with applications for listed building consent if necessary.

We all understand the responsibilities of working on buildings that form part of our cultural heritage, many buildings are unsympathetically repaired even in this supposedly more enlightened day and age.

Often it is cheaper and speedier to employ craftsmen that understand vernacular buildings, repairing with the correct methods only where really necessary. Far too many times we see bad repairs carried out by good tradesmen who just didn't understand what was (or wasn't) needed.

We are actively involved in many conservation minded groups, particularly the Suffolk Historic Buildings Group, believing that being proactive is the only way forward for the conservation movement.
