Plaster Survey & Repair
Quadriga has a team of highly skilled plasterers that are experts in the restoration of traditional and historic plasterwork on ceilings. Our surveying service helps our clients manage the risks associated with any damage or deterioration of these ceilings.
The most common causes of collapse or damage to any ceiling, historical or otherwise, are: timber failure, installation of new services, fire/water damage, damp/wet rot, dry rot and insect infestation
Before any repairs can be undertaken the cause of the damage should be determined and rectified. Many ceilings that look irreparable can be saved.
Our surveys inspect both below and above the ceiling level where possible.
Ceilings in listed buildings require approval and or guidance from the local conservation officer. It is also necessary to determine the materials originally used so that appropriate repair techniques can be selected. Knowing the age of the ceiling and surveying detail on sculptural decoration is helpful here. Lath and plasterwork, fibrous plaster and lime plaster all fall within our range of experience.
