Welcome to Core Conservation!

We specialize in investigating and solving dampness-related problems in any older or listed building, advocating traditional, building-friendly and breathable practices, technologies and materials. We understand very well the differences between old and new buildings in terms of architecture, building philosophy and materials used, and the damages non-breathable materials can do to old buildings.

We are a team of building conservation specialists, scientists and engineers under one roof, holistically investigating and permanently solving often long-standing, stubborn and complex dampness problems in older buildings.

We use a mix of old and new technologies - as long as they are building-friendly, breathable and non-invasive - including traditional Roman waterproofing mortars, Venetian lime plasters and non-Invasive damp proof courses to permanently resolve these problems.

We are the winners of the 2020 Homebuilding and Renovating Awards, in the „Best Insulation Supplier“ category.


WE WORK NATIONWIDE - Throughout the UK and Ireland.  For more information please select your area of interest below. 


We do our own research, in-house. In our labs we investigate various aspects of moisture movement including of rising damp, the wetting-drying cycle, and properties of building materials.

Dampness Surveys

We investigate all dampness problems holistically using cutting edge diagnosis tools. We find the root-cause of stubborn dampness problems - difficult and challenging cases are our specialty.

Solving Dampness

Once the root cause of the problems have been identified, we explain you everything in plain English, outlying the remedy options with particular attention to traditional, building friendly options. 


We advocate building friendly technologies and materials. We know how important is for old buildings to breathe, and the damages some modern materials and cement can do.
