At K.T. Preservation we offer a select range of services solidified since our conception back in 1977.
Over the years we have remained experts in our field, having had the pleasure of working in some prized historical buildings and nearly all types of construction from, vernacular, ancient castles and barn conversions to townhouses, modern and contemporary new builds and purpose built opera theaters, there isn't much more we haven't come across.
We are expert surveyors and undertake works that preserve the building from issues, including but not limited to; natural dilapidation such as weathering of external facades, excessive damp issues, cavity wall defects, timber decay/ infestation, pest control/ infestation and all the way through to plastering, waterproofing basements and agricultural pesticide treatment.
We aim to protect the building from anything that poses an unnatural and unwarranted threat to its' and yours environment, using a careful, thoughtful approach with traditional and modern methods where necessary.View Case Studies
