As architects, we possess a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the conservation and repair of timber frame buildings. Our team ensures that all repairs are compatible with the original substrate and maintain the integrity and historical significance of the building. We are often called upon to survey timber frames that have been repaired with unsympathetic materials in the past, which has resulted in accelerated decay. It is essential to use materials that respect the natural characteristics of the building to ensure its longevity. We believe that the use of natural, breathable materials is paramount in creating a healthy, warm, and chemical-free environment, reducing the impact on the environment and promoting sustainability.
