We can provide special skills in conservation works in one or more areas of your project, or we can handle the construction management of the complete restoration project. We’re experienced in identifying the hidden features and fabric of your building for restoration. We have gained a lot of experience over many years and can provide special co-ordination with the architects and engineers. We can assist them with our knowledge on historically correct detailing or complementary design and planning.

The OldBuilders Company are one of Ireland’s leading specialists in lime mortars and have expertise in plastering, pointing and stone works in lime mortar. Lime plaster maintains the breathability of your old stone walls and this moderates damp and condensation.
