Vincent Reed specialises in period wood conservation and restoration.

We restore exterior and interior woodwork, architectural joinery and exceptional antique furniture.

Who we are

 

Vincent Reed Ltd is a specialist wood restoration company. Founded in 1989 and based in the South East, Vincent employs a team of highly skilled artisan craftsman who share a passion for preserving the heritage of our buildings and their interiors. Vincent Reed works regularly alongside English Heritage, The National Trust and local conservation officers providing invaluable support and advice to our clients.

What we do

 

We specialise in the sympathetic and traditional period wood restoration. Projects vary in size from a Victorian semi-detached family home to a Grade I listed stately home as well as some of our country’s most recognisable scheduled monuments including Kensington Palace. Our focus is always to conserve and restore these original features, whilst striking a balance with the needs of each as a space to live in and enjoy.

Our philosophy

 

We understand that period wooden architecture  must be given the same treatment and respect that antique furniture demands. Over time, as with furniture, the surface takes on a wonderful historical character and colour which is referred to as patina. When restoring it is vital that this valuable historical detail is maintained. This is why WE NEVER USE SANDING MACHINES! We only  use traditional techniques and materials.
