About DB Building Conservation

DB Building Conservation specialises in the use of lime plasters for the repair of listed and period buildings. We are period property experts. We have extensive experience of lime plastering, render and traditional materials such as lath and plaster and wattle and daub. We also undertake repointing and wall repairs with flint and clunch. I have an MSc in Building Conservation and can advise on many aspects of the care and renewal of traditional buildings whether listed or not. Issues such as damp and insulation in old properties are a speciality. We can also recommend and liaise with other tradespeople who are qualified to repair historic timber, brick and stone. We have a detailed knowledge of regulations as they apply to Listed Buildings and have long experience of guiding owners through the process of obtaining listed building consent. We can prepare documents such as Heritage Statements and repair specs to support applications to alter or repair period properties.

Plasterer / Renderer

Dan did such a great job with our 17th century lime wall. Painstakingly removing the modern repair without damaging the surrounding plaster and then re-lathing and finishing with lime plaster. You can hardly see where the repair is even though we didn't skim the whole wall to preserve wall paintings. Very clean and tidy and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again, highly recommended.

Plasterer / Renderer

Dan was an absolute pleasure to work with. We didn't know what we were doing at the start and he answered lots of numpty questions and patiently took us through different options. His workmanship was amazing and we cannot believe how different our rooms look. We will be using Dan again and recommend him without hesitation.

Plasterer / Renderer

The work entailed a patch repair to a bedroom ceiling in a listed building, our house. Dan provided a very professional service. He turned up on the two visits needed to do the work on time and gave an accurate estimate of the time he required. He cleaned up scrupulously every visit. He gave a good explanantion of the challenges of the work and was helpful in suggesting how the patch and the rest of ceiling can now be decorated.
