Churches and other Ecclesiastical Buildings

 

Ecclesiastical repairs and reordering is our speciality. Over the last 30 years we have repaired many of the finest 14th to 20th century churches in Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, and the surrounding counties.

Our joiners can restore and repair screens, pews, reredos and doors and reorder kitchen and bathroom facilities. Our masons can restore flooring, fonts, tracery, and external masonry and decorative features using conservation mortar mixes and natural stone. Our lime plasterers are skilled at repairs and conservation work. Church roof repair projects are common due to water ingress and lead thefts, and we can repair or replace a wide range of slated, tiled, flat, pitched roofs and towers, providing reinforcements as required.
