Conservation

Conservation is all about minimum invasion, it’s about maintaining integrity and being honest to what the original builders intended and what’s left of it. It’s an area in which we have considerable experience, and one that we want to grow.

It often comes as a surprise to our clients that we understand conservation to the level of expertise that we offer. The truth is that you can study conservation for as many years as you like, but until you’re working on projects, learning about materials, comparative wear, how different stone types interact, the effect of settlement and all the myriad other elements that added together give us the experience we bring to a project…it’s all just theoretical.

At Rowland’s we’ve worked on projects big and small. We’re traditional stonemasons able to offer both age-old skills in carving and working stone and the latest technology in conservation. It means you need go no further than to consult us for any project you’re involved with; we’ll produce a report, recommendations, costings, a schedule of works and the work itself, a full turn-key operation that we guarantee you’ll be happy with.

For advise on conservation, restoration or any other stone related questions, contact us on 0117 953 3550, or email using the contact form and we’ll get back to you.
