Historic building restoration experts

Naturally, preserving historic buildings requires a very specific knowledge and understanding of the building materials used in the era the building was constructed. Whether you need masonry stabilisation, damp proofing or bird fouling removal services you can rely on Peter Cox’s historic preservation team to apply our restoration and preservation services in a manner that respects the heritage value of the property. Peter Cox will ensure that any iconic and historic buildings we work on can continue to amaze for generations to come.

The premier choice for historic preservation

Alongside our long and distinguished track record of restoring historic buildings, the reason we are so highly regarded by heritage companies across the country is due to our renowned workmanship and ability to handle specifications as varied as:

● Sourcing reclaimed timber
● Reconstructing traditional oak framing
● Strengthening floor beams
● Stabilising masonry facades

In order to determine the best course of action to take when restoring historic structures, a thorough inspection of the site by our specialist surveyors will need to be carried out. If you choose to take on their recommendations, then all of our work is guaranteed, ensuring it will be completed to the highest standard. Since the company was founded in 1951 over 500,000 long term guarantees have been issued to our domestic and commercial clients.
