The APR Company

Specialists in Architectural Paint Removal and Traditional Lime Repairs

Building restoration

Traditional buildings that we admire have been around for hundreds of years. The question that people must ask themselves is ‘Why?' The answer is that they were built with locally sourced natural materials that move and breathe with the climate and ground around them. Current owners of these historic properties are unaware that the use of modern mortars and other modern materials are damaging the very fabric they are trying to protect. This is also de-valuing the biggest financial asset that most families have.
The APR Company uses natural limes in their mortars and, where necessary animal hair. Where required, mortars can be analysed and copied as near as possible to the original mortars used.
The APR Company carries out sympathetic building repairs to suit the property.

We work with conservation officers and other preservation authorities as well as you, the client.

We can also provide lime paint or lime wash applications.
