Church Restoration

church restorationMany churches across the country are in a state of disrepair from leaking roof tiles, damp internal walls, to broken windows. They have stood the test of time but at some point, need some tender loving care to bring them back to their former glory. Our churches are part of our history but also our future so need to be maintained and cared for in accordance with current use but also be respectful of structure and appearance. At DH Heritage, we have a team of skilled craftsmen with many years of experience available to complete full or part church restorations.

From grand medieval or gothic churches to small local church buildings, each has their own character to be preserved for future generations to enjoy and protect. Many people think of church restoration as fixing lead roofing or replacing broken stained glass but it is so much more than that. To restore a church successfully takes time with careful consideration needed at each step, from choosing the correct contractor to deciding what to replace or restore. At DH Heritage, we can restore church buildings back to their architectural splendour by carrying out a compassionate restoration project which is sympathetic to the building itself, surrounding grounds and local area.

Stone masonry is a major part of any church restoration project alongside traditional lime plastering, roof tile and lead replacement, joinery and carpentry to deep cleaning of ancient stained glass scenes. Each task is a highly skilled part of an intricate work of art that completes our churches across the country.

Many aspects of church restoration are linked, for example the installation of new stained glass alongside newly erected window frames and stonework need to fit perfectly and look as one. DH Heritage specialise in church restoration including all aspects of internal and external work. This means that we can ensure that each part of the restoration is complimentary to the complete building.
