Alterations in Period Buildings
David Rudge Associates provides specialist alterations on listed and historical buildings. Alterations and maintenance to listed buildings require specialist skills and knowledge. This includes information about the historic materials used in the original construction.
Period buildings will naturally move. This is due to thermal expansion and contraction of the materials originally used. Adding inappropriate modern materials can cause problems with the original structure.
Completing repair work without any knowledge about the historic building process is not advisable. This can potentially cause further damage to the building.
Listed buildings, period buildings and properties of historical interest need expert care. They should be maintained and restored using original features and materials. This is to preserve the character of the building.
Listed buildings are structures and properties which have been protected. This is to preserve their historical importance and special design features. Owners of listed buildings are not able to make significant alterations. They require listed building authority consent.
