We cover all aspects of listed/conservation building projects, whether if be Grade 1 or Grade 2 listed. Over the years, we have have have worked on numerous listed buildings and are well versed on the necessary requirements and regulations when working on conservation properties. Whether this be lime-plastering, using cob-blocks with lime mortar, or the required masonry and carpentry skills.

Lime rendering

As part of restoring listed buildings we frequently use lime rendering over that of plaster as required by  “environment and planning“. Lime render is an old technique that immediately give the property a warm aged feel. Unlike cement render, lime render is breathable allowing the movement of vapour between the join, which reduces the chance of frost damage on the brick work.

We undertake Lime Rendering and Plastering as well as Fireplace Restoration and Stonework.

We provide conservation services to numerous areas of the beautiful county of Cornwall; including Devon, Launceston, Bude, and Liskeard, in addition to Plymouth and Holsworthy.

Traditional materials as well as professionalism

We specialise in the conservation of period properties using traditional materials, hence our ability to keep their integrity intact. We comply fully with the requirements of conservation departments in order to ensure that long-established methods are used to renovate properties from another era, as a result, all work appears genuine and authentic alongside the rest of the building.

At Hysmark Ltd, we use time-honoured methods to restore or replace the sash windows and doors keeping them the same as their original styling. If your frames have fallen into disrepair, we have the knowledge and expertise to restore them or even replace them, paying attention to detail at all times; as a result, your end product will be breath-taking.
