Bay window restoration

Vale Road09

This house had remained pretty much untouched since it was built, and even had its original outside loo! However, it was in a derelict state when we were called in. The features were very badly eroded, cracked or like in the sill’s case, had just disappeared completely!Vale Road01

We took everything off, salvaging what we could, and started to rebuild starting with new sills.Vale Road02

We then built up and added new bases, pillars and new caps which I’d carved. A new header was added which is being pointed in with a lime mortarVale Road03


These are 2 of the new caps I carved, to match the existing.

The finishing touches were put onto the header stone with the v-cut pattern carved in-situ to match its twin.Vale Road05

It was a very hot couple of weeks.

And this was the before and after, ready for the glaziers and the decorators.

We hired Geraint to undertake a delicate Bath stone repair job as part of an extensive English Heritage external refurb. We required the job to be turned around quickly. He promptly attended site to measure up and take profiles of the decorative stone work we needed to match in and repair. Later that day I had a price which was approved. Due to his connections he managed to get the supplier to deliver and cut the stone in double quick time which was then worked quickly in his work shop. Lastly he attended the site and fitted all the stone work which slotted in perfectly and once painted you genuinely wouldn’t know the difference. All in all, top service, true professional at what he does and he will be first person I call if/when I need stone work done again in the future.
