Historic Building Conservation & Repair specialises in surveying, repairing and renovating historic homes and listed buildings and has particular expertise in pre-1750 timber framed buildings.

The company’s founder Roland Locke is qualified, to post graduate degree level, in historic timber framed building conservation and is a carpenter with decades of experience in identifying and solving complex problems with timber framed structures.

Experienced in navigating the challenges of repairing buildings with listed status, and working with local authority conservation officers, HBC&R demonstrates a positive approach which is sympathetic to the significance of the buildings, by using a conservation approach that uses traditional methods and materials, but incorporates modern techniques where they will retain the maximum amount of historic fabric.

HBC&R can dovetail into an existing schedule of a building project and/or manage everything for its client. From historic investigations, interpretations and condition reports, through to detailed analysis and specification, or the repairs themselves.

The company offers a friendly, reliable, competitive service and can manage projects from a few hundred pounds to tens of thousands of pounds. Whether it is simply timber that needs repairing/replacing, or a complete renovation project, HBC&R can help.

With in-depth understanding of traditional timber framed construction, HBC&R can also bring its expertise to the design and build of new timber framed structures in green oak. It can design structures that harmonise with existing buildings in its CAD system to help clients visualise the finished result.

Other timber building conservation specialisms include:

  • Identification and remedial repair of damp, fungal and insect infestation.
  • Timber and timber re-enforcing repairs to timber framed buildings.
  • Wattle and daub panel repair or replacement.
  • Brick and stone repairs and pointing in lime mortar.
  • Statements of significance.
