Restoration Services
Szerelmey Restoration specialises in restoration, conservation, refurbishment and remodelling all types of heritage properties and structures, across all sectors. Drawing on over 160 years of experience, we are able to provide solutions for the most complex works including facade retention, take down and rebuild, facade stretching and structural works. We deliver full restoration of externals and interiors including surveys, cleaning, repair and restoration, roof work and leadwork, painting and decorating, carpentry and joinery, metal work and window repair and replacement.

Major Projects
Our major projects team can deliver large-scale, challenging projects working as Principal Contractor or Specialist Subcontractor. The team can undertake all forms of restoration and structural alterations / adaptations including new build elements, often working in conjunction with our inhouse Design team.

Szerelmey Restoration has a wealth of experience in working on heritage and fragile structures approaching all heritage projects with care and empathy. We always use the least invasive approach with our craftspeople dedicated to protecting and restoring the structures they work on, and we carry out rigorous surveys, sampling and assessment of the structure before starting any work.

Retained Facades
We have delivered multiple retained facade projects over many years. This involves the survey, careful dismantle, removal, adaptation, storage and finally reinstatement of historic facades and is one way to ensure the retention of the heritage detail whilst facilitating modern structural requirements. Our design team can also accommodate the stretching of the existing facade to seamlessly blend with the existing.

Preserving historic interiors is just as important as external works. Our team can carry out all forms of interior restoration from straight forward marble and terrazzo cleaning to insitu repairs, metal works, decorative painting and gilding, scagliola and structural alterations, creating mezzanine levels and the formation of new openings to adapt historic buildings for contemporary uses.

Our Restoration team work closely with our Design team which enables us to deliver complex projects that involve heavy design input. This might include structural adaptations to existing facades and interiors to enable the repurposing of historic buildings for contemporary use, the creation of new openings and facade “stretching”. Often we will design new fixing systems and supporting structures for use with historic stone, terracotta and brickwork.
