Period Restoration and Conservation
Shire Homes’ great attention to detail comes to the forefront in its historic building restoration and house renovation.
It has been our privilege and pleasure to work on some exceptional properties, built at a time when craftsmen took their trades to extraordinary levels. Our Cumbria building restoration services remain faithful to their outstanding skills.
The heritage restoration team is acclaimed for its inspiration and ability in combining ancient techniques with modern requirements.
Whether we are working on a medieval hall or old mill, rebuilding a wall or repairing a chimney, Shire Homes has the knowledge and aptitude to get it right.
We go back to traditional natural lime mortar, which has been used in construction for centuries, for our historic building renovation.
Leaded window repairs and replacement, along with sandstone mullions, are jobs in which we excel.
Let our experience in listed buildings, halls, stately homes, churches and monuments speak for itself. We stop at nothing to bring these magnificent old structures back to life.
Undertaking all commissions from major Grade I listed building repairs to church and farmhouse restoration, we do it all.
We are the firm that truly loves history and heritage and can be trusted with every single special stone and structure. Their future is safe in our hands.
“My great love for old buildings stems from their character. They are like a living, breathing entity and, frankly, we’re addicted to them!” said Shire Homes director and master builder, Mike Parsley.
“We wake up in the morning thinking about these wonderful jobs. We’ll have dreamed about what we’re doing and it’s constantly on our minds from start to finish.”
