Welcome to Core Conservation!
We specialize in investigating and solving dampness-related problems in any old 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.
