Repair joists and Decorative Plaster Cornice.
Poor roof detailing led to many years of water ingress behind this decorative stairwell ceiling and cornice.
We took down the failed structure, repaired the Joists and applied new Riven Oak Lath and Lime Plaster to the flat ceiling.
A new Solid, Lime Cornice was run 'in-situ' with a running mould.
Some original casts were removed and the layers of historic paint gently stripped before a mould was taken and the new casts applied to the Cornice.
