Period Style & Intricate Design
We lovingly repair, restore and reinstate original joinery in historic buildings and homes.
Vincent will work with you directly to reinstate period woodwork that may have been damaged or removed entirely.
Any joinery that is damaged beyond repair can be copied by hand and reinstated using traditional techniques to ensure authenticity. Our artisan craftsmen will replicate period styles and intricate designs to restore the finer details of your historic home.
Original joinery in your home, including windows, doors, staircases and other unique architectural features, are carefully restored using traditional techniques.
Our highly skilled artisan craftsmen have the perfect balance of knowledge, passion and experience to carry out complex lasting repairs that will preserve these architectural details and highlight their unique quality for years to come.
“We will always recommend conserving as much of the original elements as possible.
Our quality repairs mean that original joinery can be restored to its former strength. We can also sympathetically blend the best modern technologies with original aspects of a building seamlessly to prolong the life of these architectural details”
