Maintenance and repair to chimneys and fireplaces in old and listed properties
Listed properties are by their very nature, old and therefore need maintenance and repair, permission often has to be sought from council heritage property teams before work can take place.
Renovation and maintenance work must be performed sympathetically using the right kind of materials and products. Undoubtedly there will be certain restrictions depending on the buildings’ listed status. For example, we may be called upon to repair or re-point a stone or brick chimney stack, requiring replacement materials which are identical to the original and special lime mortar mixes. It is imperative that any work we perform continues to accurately maintain the features and functions within the building and we take this undertaking very seriously.
