What is a Listed Building?
An old building that dates back to back to before the mid 1800's and more modern buildings with architectural importance are normally classed as a listed buildings by The National Heritage for England. The majority of listed buildings in Cornwall are Grade II and this protection helps to preserve the building as you require listed building consent to make internal and external alterations. We have extensive restoration skills required for listed building renovations including cornicing, lime plastering, stone masonry and carpentry.
Lime plaster has been used on buildings for hundreds of years. Lime has a porosity that allows the structure to breathe and reduce moisture build up.
Lime pointing is a traditional skill required to maintain and repair mass-masonry walls where moisture entering the walls structure cannot dissipate.
