Listed Property Restoration Bedford
This client contacted our team to complete a full restoration project on their historic building restoration in Bedfordshire. It took a team of 6 skilled craftsmen 6 months to complete the renovation.
As the building has a timber frame, first of all, we had to begin with remedial work to the foundations. Once the timber frame had been repaired we excavated the flooring and replaced with a limecrete floor complete with underfloor heating. A modern touch to this historic building.
The whole property was internally plastered with lime plaster to protect its newly repaired frame. In addition to this, we rebuilt the chimney which allowed up to open up the fireplace.
External Restoration Work
We completed the property with a full external lime render again to protect the newly repaired timber frame. Using Heritage Double glazing we replaced all the windows and doors on the property.
External Lime Render in Bedford
This client based in Bedford had a property which had a concrete render. As mentioned in our services page using modern materials such as a concrete render on these historic buildings can cause many issues. Because many of these buildings have a timber frame a concrete render does not allow the property to breathe. Consequently, this can cause the timber frame to rot with damp.
It took a team of 3 men two months to remove the concrete and replace with a breathable insulation and completed with a lime render.
