Dædalus Conservation believes that it is imperative to create an environment where the conservator and tradesman work alongside one another, sharing their skills and expertise.  It has conserved most materials, in isolation or together; timber, ceramics, polychromy on most substrates, wall paintings, plasters, stuccos and renders, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, and, of course, stone. Services covered include:

  • Condition surveys
  • Sculpture
  • Monuments and Memorials
  • Wall paintings
  • Plaster ceiling stabilisation
  • Cleaning and consolidation of building surfaces, plain or decorative
  • Environmental controls and monitoring
  • Materials analysis 

The company craftsman are able to give careful consideration, analysis and precise matching of samples prior to the commencement of the work, ensuring the correct methodology and high standard of workmanship are put in place. This is particularly important for ancient, heritage, period, listed and historic buildings, including churches
