Complete Building Services

With our extensive in-house experience and considerable expertise in all trades and disciplines we use a practical and informed approach to historic building repair.
From the initial surveys and planning through to the end of the contract we will leave you with a completed project finished to a high standard.

Lime Plastering & Rendering

Lime renders were traditionally applied to give protection to walls built of poor quality rubble stone or porous brick or to walls in exposed locations facing driving winds. They help by acting like a sponge, absorbing rainfall then allowing it to evaporate rather than soak into the wall. Most cottages and houses built of rubble stone would have been rendered originally and they tend to suffer from penetrating damp if the lime render is removed or replaced with a cement rich render.

 

Limecrete/Screed

Limecrete floors offer a breathable alternative to concrete and they can still be highly insulated leaving no need for a membrane to be used.
Lime was used extensively for foundation work before the invention of cement. Lime flooring allows for some movement of the building and the free passage of moisture and air, which helps to prevent damp problems.
You can still incorporate under floor heating laying this on the limecrete in a lime screed.

Stone Masonry

Stone masonry is a traditional form of construction practiced for centuries in the regions where stone is locally available. It is still found in old historic centers, often in buildings of cultural and historical significance.
We can supply and install stone for new build and restoration projects.
Replacement stones, masoned or carved, are carefully matched and refixed by one of our specialised stone masons.

ROOFING

MONMOUTH ROOFING THORTECK LTD serve Monmouth & the surrounding areas and we believe the roof is probably the single most exposed face of any exposed structure It has to withstand rain, wind, ice, ultra-violet light and, increasingly, the effects of damaging acids caused by atmospheric pollution. All the more reason for specifiers to choose a natural roofing product that is able to sustain these harsh elements and still mellow and improve with age. Not only will a roof tile or slate hold an authentic time worn appeal, but its low maintenance cost will mean that its whole life cost is relatively low.

All operatives have been fully trained in all aspects of lead fixing practices and the installations of rain-water systems and energy-efficient insulation systems.
