Conservation work

Cob solutions is passionate about conserving Britain’s building heritage.

We combine the use of traditional and contemporary methods and materials to provide long lasting and sympathetic repairs through minimal intervention.

We are interested to hear about any type of traditional building conservation and specialise in the following areas:

  • Cob repairs. (movement, slumping, cracking, collapsed)
  • Mass cob and cob block construction
  • Lime rendering
  • Lime plastering
  • Lime pointing
  • Breathable paint finishes
  • Associated timber and stone work
  • Quality oak floors
  • Limecrete breathable floors
  • Character floor and wall tiling

Restoring and repairing with the correct traditional materials is not only sympathetic to your building but also very green. The majority of the materials used are locally sourced and much less manufactured than many of today’s new products.

Building With Cob

By nature cob creates beautiful and healthy spaces to spend time in while being dirt cheap (literally) and having very low environmental impact.

Its organic nature can be reflected right the way through a construction in the shape and texture of the walls and cob helps to regulate atmospheric moisture content and temperature to create consistent clean environments.

Whether a garden wall, outside office space or extension, cob is a sustainable, healthy and green way to build.
