Illuminating the Past
IDENTIFYING LINCRUSTA AND EMBOSSED RAISED-RELIEF WALLCOVERINGS
An integral part of good conservation and restoration practice is investigation, with many reasons as to why a building and/or its interior may need to be known. As a professional, business or home owner you may wish:
To learn more of the history of a building and its interior
To be better informed about the historic materials used within a building to assist with issues of Health & Safety*,
on-going maintenance, conservation or restoration
To seek answers in support of planning applications, restoration projects or insurance claims
To add emphasis to significant or unique features within a building in order to aid in sales marketing
Lincrusta Heritage can provide the background historical and analytical information required to inform on Health and Safety issues, material understanding, conservation and restoration processes for Lincrusta and other embossed, raised relief wall-coverings. In addition, Lincrusta Heritage can supply heritage statements and other assessment reports in support of planning applications and insurance claims on behalf of architects, builders, business owners, decorators, engineers, homeowners, interior designers, property developers, surveyors and other historic building professionals.
Lincrusta Heritage will carry out research utilising online, primary and secondary resources, with the addition of site visits and additional resources identified and retrieved from local, national and commercial archives.
Lincrusta Heritage can also be engaged to research and uncover the history and structural development of your property as well as to illuminate previous occupants and uncover available recorded alterations made to the property and its interior.
Lincrusta Heritage offers bound and illustrated documentation of research to include copies of available historical documentation, plans, photographs, illustrations and maps.
