We only advocate traditional, building-friendly and breathable materials and practices.

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 cause to old buildings.

Protecting & Preserving Old Buildings

Our Mission Statement

  1. To embrace, reinstate and promote traditional solutions, materials and practices for the restoration of old buildings, where those exist. 
  2. To research conservation friendly, non-invasive alternatives to problems with no traditional solutions, or where existing solutions do not meet 21st century needs and expectations.
  3. Through research take everything back to basics, to clarify, demonstrate and explain in plain English the various mechanisms, drivers and underlying principles of moisture movement in order to bring more clarity into this field.
