Ask us a question

We welcome questions that will help build this site into an essential resource.  Please feel free to ask, but remember - we are NOT a source of free telephone advice.  If questions are submitted on the enquiry forms, we will anser them on the website if we feel they are relevant. 

If you have a specific question that you would like an answer to, we can offer two ways for you to get an answer - either our 1 hour telephone consulatation, or a one day site visit.  

Please don't expect answers for free - we simply dont have the time or resources.  Would YOU spend all day on the phone for nothing...?

If you have a question that you'd like to see tackled in the Knowledge Base, fill in the details below to send it to us.

We'll do our best to tackle all questions that are sent to us, but we are extremely busy so there many be a delay before we publish a response.  The website will only be as good as the questions we are asked - so please keep these specific and relevant to restoring or maintaining your home.

Please note that we will publish your question and answer within the Knowledge Base for public viewing.  Examples of the sort of questions we will consider would be "I've just stripped and repaired my Georgian sash windows - what paint should I use", or "How do I fill gaps in my timber frame, and where do I get the materials"

If you have a personal issue that you'd like us to help with directly - a timber or damp issue, for example - please use our Consultation Services

Please keep your question very specific.  Often there is too much for a simple email response, and we may suggest a telephone consultation, costing £150 - in which we can review photographs and information send by you, and spend an hour on the phone discussing your problem with you.  Please let us know where you are located, as this often helps.
