25 Year’s of Craftsmanship
Be it commercial of private projects, the master craftsmen here at Fullbrooks of England have been employing traditional methods to create first class architectural and decorative plaster mouldings for over a quarter of a century. All the classic, ornamental features from each distinct period of history are available through Fullbrooks, including alcoves, arches, ceiling roses, cornices and coving, columns, ceiling bands, dado rails, figures, panel corners, panel mouldings, portico, niches, trusses, wall plaques and corbels.
Durable and Easy to Maintain
All of our fibrous plaster, decorative moulding products are made from the highest quality materials and are designed to be simple to fix. This, along with careful reinforcing, ensures maximum longevity. If you’re renovating or restoring, note that the materials we use will mean that the replacement mouldings we install will typically be even more hardwearing and easy to maintain than the original features.
Preserving Our Heritage
Except for improvements in mould-making compounds, since the times of renowned Scottish neoclassical architect, Robert Adam (1728 – 1792), there has been little deviation from the techniques and methods used to this day by our talented craftsmen here at Fullbrooks. Our founder trained under the old masters; people who produced plaster mouldings for royal palaces. These traditional skills, steeped in heritage, have been passed on from generation to generation and the Fullbrook family are committed to ensuring that this culturally important skill is preserved and continued. As members of The Guild of Master Craftsmen, Fullbrooks of England has been duly recognised as a centre of excellence when it comes to decorative plaster mouldings.
Decorative Mouldings for Renovation and Restoration
Over the last 25 years we have developed numerous casting and moulding techniques using age-old, tried-and-tested techniques to produce traditional, decorative, fibrous plaster mouldings to replace damaged of missing features. Fullbrooks use a variety of conservation skills to restore damaged period features ia range of buildings. We are experts in both plaster cornice restoration and conservation Our skilled team can reproduce missing features from photographs, drawings or archive data (either yours or our own).
Working With You
Depending on your needs, we’re happy to work as either sub or main contractors. We have excellent working relationships with building firms both locally to the Cotswolds and further afield that we have built up over many years and we can offer you professional guidance to both private and commercial clients for projects of any size as well as continuous support as and when required. This obviously includes visits to the site to provide estimates for your plaster mouldings or assess and discuss what is required from your architectural drawings.
NOTE: As well as decorative, fibrous plaster interior mouldings, we also manufacture mouldings for exterior use, utilising materials such as glass-reinforced polyester (resin), glass reinforced cement and cast stone composites, so Fullbrooks of England are the only company you’ll need.
Protect the Value of your Property with Fullbrooks Plaster Mouldings
Though it is hard to quantify the intangible contribution historic buildings make to our quality of life, both here in the UK and abroad, there are statistics that can give you some idea of the monetary value of properly maintained architectural features. Data compiled by English Heritage and The London School of Economics proves that conservation area status adds 9% more to the monetary value of housing. Neglected properties in conservation areas can have their ‘added value’ reduced to 5%. Preserving (or adding) value to your home by maintaining and restoring existing plaster mouldings or investing in new pieces which re-introduce the period styling of your property makes a great deal of sense both aesthetically and commercially.
