For over 80 years Richardson and Starling have been providing our customers with historic building restoration services. Across Scotland and the North of England, we strive to give our customers the best advice and price on historic building repair they require.
By their very nature, historic buildings are more difficult to make repairs and undertake refurbishments to. It’s not just a case of making effective repairs, you need to ensure that all work remains consistent with the original character and appearance of the building. A sympathetic and conservation approach is required with the remedial works kept to a minimum to resolve the problem. Often monitoring and drying of the property will achieve the satisfactory result without the need for extensive repair. Richardson & Starling are fully aware of this when we take on a challenge with a historical building.
Each historic building restoration job is different and our skilled surveyors thoroughly analyse each case to decide the best method to use for restoration and repairs.
Historic buildings by nature are fragile and delicate, purely due to their age. They can take on many different shapes and sizes, dependant on the era they were constructed and can be found all over the world. One of the most important things for historic buildings is to maintain them and restore them when damaged. Unlike other building restoration, historic building restoration is more complicated. The original structure must be maintained and the repairs must also be in keeping with the rest of the building. One of Richardson & Starling’s specialities is historic building restoration and our aim is to maintain these historic landmarks future generations.
