Technical Advice

All too often assumptions are made about the materials in a historic building. Understanding the original materials, those used in any later interventions and what is not only compatible but appropriate is vital.

Technical questions vary greatly, but below are some typical requests we receive:

  • What species of wood is it?

  • What type of mortar was used?

  • Was the cornice cast or run In-Situ?

  • Is this cast iron, wrought iron or steel?

  • Can this mosaic be saved?
