Filbert Crafts - Traditional skills & materials

Pictured here is a barn conversion that features several aspects of the work undertaken by Filbert Crafts - a hand made wooden staircase give access to a mezzanine floor with stained glass dividing panels, and under the stairs a pair of made to measure doors with stained glass inset panels - made and installed by Filbert Crafts. It is the combination of traditional skills and techniques, and the appreciation for traditional building techniques and materials, that allows Filbert Crafts to take a holistic approach to your project.

Traditional Lead Work

Filbert Crafts have considerable expertise in traditional lead work including battened roofs and repairs to leaded windows. Repairs and restorations can be also be undertaken to dormer and bay windows, roof valleys and church roofs, providing a handsome, long-lasting, weather-resistant finish as close to the original design as possible.

Lime Plastering and Lime Pointing

Old buildings, like people, need to breathe. Their single-skin construction behaves differently from modern cavity walls, and the use of cement pointing and renders and gypsum plasters can cause untold damage and damp problems. Filbert Crafts use traditional breathable materials and lime mortars and plasters for the specialist conservation of vulnerable, historic and listed buildings.

Masonry Work

Filbert Crafts have years of experience in masonry conservation work, carefully repairing intricate stone detailing and other architectural features. Damaged or even missing sections of masonry can be sensitively and successfully repaired, renewed and restored, giving a new lease of life to stonework that you may have thought was beyond economic or realistic repair.
