Having worked on the interior and exterior of listed buildings including Lympstone Manor in Exmouth, MPC Plastering can guarantee you the level of care and attention to detail you demand for your heritage property.
Whether you are looking for restoration, preventive conservation or improvements in energy efficiency we can provide the specialist knowledge and technical application you need.
Helping to Preserve England’s Cultural Assets
Restoring and conserving England’s rich cultural heritage is an honour and a privilege we never take lightly. We understand our role in ensuring the country’s listed buildings are cared for so that they can continue to bring enjoyment and appreciation for both their current owners and for the generations to follow.
To begin with, we will carefully assess the current state of the existing surfaces, render and plasterwork and advise you of what work is required to bring the property up to the required standard. Only when you are completely satisfied with our appraisal will we begin work.
We Won’t Take Chances with your Listed Property
Taking any short cuts with listed buildings will inevitably lead to problems further down the line. We will give you an accurate schedule of works and will never rush preparation to complete a project early. Preparation is key to ensuring the flawless finish that listed building owners demand. This includes thoroughly preparing the surfaces to be plastered as well as carefully selecting the ideal plaster or render mix before applying it. We can then take care of any period detailing that is required, prioritising precision and accuracy.
Specialists in Traditional Cob and Lime Applications
Many owners of traditional cob buildings report damp and mildew problems. Often this is to do with the incorrect choice of render, paint, plaster or other materials. We understand and respect the micro-climate that cob needs to maintain to breathe. For example, we will ensure the most suitable products (e.g. limewash) are applied so that your render can flex with your walls, providing protection from the elements without cracking or flaking.
