Restoration & Conservation

Understanding and respecting the historical importance, physical properties and aesthetics of a period item while retaining its authenticity is of paramount importance to Mark’s restoration and conservation work ethic.

He is committed to using best practices in conserving as much of the structure and surface as possible with the minimum of intervention to the original fabric. Sympathetically cleaning and consolidating flaking and friable layers while endeavouring to use traditional materials that are predominantly reversible. When required method statements and photographic records can be supplied. It is not in the remit of Mark Bridges Carvers and Gilders Ltd to give valuations.
