Common Causes of Damage
Before any repairs can be carried out, ceiling inspections and lime mortar analysis are undertaken to determine the appropriate repair techniques.
Our surveying service helps our clients manage the risks and causes 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.
Appropriate repair for listed buildings
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.
