Where joinery repairs are required, we focus on saving as much of the original timber as possible. Our expert knowledge has enabled us to carry out the repair and restoration of historic buildings and structures, combining traditional carpentry methods with proven modern day techniques to ensure those structures last well into the future.
Our dedicated teams of craftsmen pay great attention to detail, undertaking sympathetic joinery repairs which involve splicing in new sections of timber to blend seamlessly with the existing wood. We can also use a resin compound or a combination of resin and new timber to create a strong repair.
Leaded light windows are a feature of many historic buildings, and Anthony Hicks has extensive specialist experience of repairing and restoring them to their original beauty.
The frames are carefully removed and replaced by temporary panels, which will remain in place while the repairs are undertaken. The original frames are carefully transported to our workshop, where they are meticulously repaired and returned to their original condition, with careful attention to detail by our expert craftsmen.
Where necessary defective and worn lengths of lead came will be replaced by new lengths, in addition to new glass panels where required. The frames are then carefully returned and restored to the building.
“ I have used Anthony Hicks three times now on projects and I have recommended them to several friends who have also used their services. There are many people professing to build this type of structure and the magazines are littered with such adverts. However none of them in my opinion match the design and finish that Anthony Hicks can provide. I definitely think they use more timber and bigger sizes in the construction. The last building was almost entirely constructed without any metal fittings on the frame as it would have been hundreds of years ago . I am now looking for a site for a new build and I will be speaking to Anthony Hicks in the future” Mr & Mrs Andrews
