Echoes of the past…into the present

In the UK, we have a mighty fine history of architecture.  Sussex and Kent in particular boast many attractive detached, semi-detached and terraced Victorian and Edwardian houses.  

Large or small, there’s something utterly wonderful about stepping back into history within the framework of the 21st century.  

Was this where the servants slept? Was this room kept for best? With imposing rooms, and solid construction concepts, no wonder older properties have stood the test of time and are much sought after.

How we can help

Many traditional properties have been converted to “modern” tastes, losing many of their original features in the process. Should you wish to restore these characteristics, don’t hesitate to give Equilibrium Building Services a call on 01424 440007

Objectives of Period Property Restoration

Although we offer excellent services for contemporary-style restorations, many clients ask us to keep or restore as many of the original fixtures and fittings as possible.  

For example, for early 20th century houses, you may appreciate Edwardian-style cornices, mouldings and staircases, as well as floorboards and fireplaces that evoke elegant times gone by.  

For a house from the Victorian era, imagine impressive architraves, iron works and leadwork. Even windows, doors and skirtings to suit the period.

We can either repair the above for you, or source what you need from salvage yards if possible.

For internal and external walls areas, we use both modern and traditional plastering methods. This will be done on a like for like basis to suit the age of your property. And, equally impressive is our network of artisan specialists, fully skilled in re-creating all those essential period features.

Don’t forget all the less than glamorous behind-the-scenes work, too, to make everything safe and secure. There’s lots to do.  Why not contact us to find out more?
