About R.Hughes Building and Conservation Ltd

We are a traditional building company that works on listed buildings and heritage properties. We carry out extensions, barn conversions, garden walls, orangeries and repoint and repair both brick and stone masonry but our specialist skill is in historic brickwork. We are trained to work on all historic brickwork ranging from medieval castles to Victorian terraced houses using traditional techniques, materials and tools. Skills covered are lime mortar repointing, gauged brickwork, brick replacement and tuck pointing. We are lime mortar specialists having been trained in its use and having used it for a number of years now.

I myself, the owner of the company and the leading craftsman was trained by world renowned master bricklayer Dr. Gerard Lynch as was our other experienced bricklayer. We currently have a mature apprentice. We also have other craftsmen we call upon for our larger projects such as other brick and stone masons, lime plasterers, master carpenters, roofers and also plumbers and electricians for extension work. We are used to dealing with conservation officers where necessary and also with architects.

Our residential work ranges from small repointing and repair projects on terraced houses to extensions and barn conversions on grade II listed buildings. We also carry out work on national trust properties, most recently grade I listed Belton House.

We are honest, reliable, highly skilled craftsmen with a passion for conserving and restoring historic buildings. We are members of the FMB which can provide insurance backed guarantees on work where required. We are also members of SPAB and the building limes forum where we keep up to date with everything conservation!
