Church monuments

Church monuments

SSHConservation have conserved a vast range of internal and external church monuments.

It is due to our expertise in treating the fabric of historic buildings as a whole that we are able to bring an in-depth understanding of the environment in which a church monument sits.

These structures are inherently affected by their micro-climate and it is essential to understand the source of decay in order to devise appropriate methods of treatment. Damage is often caused by oxidisation of ferrous fixings and movement in core material.

We will always seek the route of minimum intervention for church monuments but where dismantling is the only solution, we are able to combine the skills of masons and conservators to ensure both stability and sensitive surface repairs.
