Restoration of traditional plasterwork

An ongoing project at the moment is the restoration of the Georgian manor house Killaganoon. This grade II listed house was built around 1750 but extensively remodelled following a fire in 1873. It is currently undergoing another thorough updating and renovation with many of the later Victorian alterations being reverted back to the original layout.

We have been brought in to do all the internal traditional plastering from lath and plaster repairs and lime putty base and top coats to the repair and reinstating of the original ornate cornice work and ceiling roses.

Where the original cornice is missing we are matching with new fibrous cast sections made in our workshop to the existing profiles.
