DJ Hutchings & Sons Ltd were appointed by the surveyors Gately Smithers Purslow to carry out the impact damage repairs suffered at this semi-detached listed building in Hertfordshire.

As in many period properties the affected internal wall was constructed in lath and plaster and our skilled trades used this traditional technique to rebuild the wall.

Horsehair lime plaster/render was applied over the laths and the walls were finished in Little Green Paint company Eco-friendly Heritage paint.
