Heritage Plaster Consultation and Surveys

Bring Your Plaster Design Back to its Former Glory

Heritage plaster and ornamental ceilings can be a victim to several issues such as movement, water damage, insecure fixings, and rotten timber. That is why repair and restoration cannot be relied on to guesswork and thus needs a system of thorough processes to ensure that the work is done with utmost care and attention. With all these things that need to be put into consideration, our expert advice is to conduct a plaster conditions survey.

A plaster consultation survey aims to know the present condition of the plasterwork and understand the cause of any problem that it currently has. That is the first step towards having a clear point of attack to decide how to stabilize or repair specific plasterwork. Only then will we be able to efficiently provide the most appropriate repair work to be initiated.
