James' decorative plasterwork repairs

"I am very pleased with the job that Jack and Andrew did. They were excellent, the enrichments look great and they were very open to discussion and liaison with me.
They did their best to minimise the dust, although as we all know, that is nigh on impossible!
Please pass on my thanks to them."

Grade II Georgian House, Northallerton

Peter's cornice repairs

"Ben and his colleague were extremely professional, left everything very tidy and worked COVID-safe.
The result is a transformation. Ben’s design for the moulding is perfect for the size and style of the room. I will send you a photo once the room is decorated.
My wife and I really appreciate you fitting us in at short notice so that we have the dining room available for Xmas."

Sally Williams, Bedale Town Hall Manager

"From the first contact with Ryedale Plasterers, we knew we were in good hands. Catherine is incredibly professional, knowledgeable and honest. The work in our Grade I Listed Ballroom was carried out quickly and efficiently. The room was protected well and cleaned superbly afterwards. The work has been admired by many and we would not hesitate to use Ryedale Plasterers again at Bedale Hall."

Bedale, North Yorkshire

Philip's listed building

"Andrew and Jack just finished the work a few hours ago. I am very pleased with the result, and also the way they’ve approached the job over the three visits – no mess, covering over the all the furniture, vacuum cleaning and, not least, the plasterwork. I can certainly recommend your company to any owner of a listed building who has similar plaster contamination."

Harrogate, North Yorkshire

Helen's ceiling and cornice repairs

"I just wanted to say thanks so much for your work on our ceiling and repairing the cornice. The guys that did it have been excellent. They’ve done a brilliant job, we’re so pleased with the finished result and that they managed to save the cornice runs which looked to be in a terrible state (other people had said it would need to be replaced). It was great having experts that we trusted working on the house and they were also great at tidying up etc which is all a welcome change from a lot of the tradesmen that we have used. I’d definitely recommend you in the future."

Darlington, County Durham

Alison Hewison

"We are totally delighted with how the finished coving looks. The workmen have done a brilliant job. They are friendly, polite and importantly considerate by not letting our cats out of the backdoor. As for cleaning up, Dave and I were totally happy with the outcome. I would certainly recommend Ryedale Plasterers to anyone who had our type of problem."

“Ryedale repaired some water-damaged cornices in my home, which was built in 1872. They fitted cornices to radius corners and reproduced an elaborate acanthus-scroll ceiling rose by taking casts from surviving examples. It was all done to an exemplary standard, and I highly recommend the company.”

Samuel Smith’s Old Brewery

“Ryedale Plasterers has carried out two contracts for us. The first was an extensive repair to the rendered exterior of a Victorian farmhouse, which was meticulously researched and carried out in lime mortar and finished in a traditional copperas application. The second involved the repair and restoration of two highly ornate 18th-century cornices in the brewery offices. All work was carried out to the highest standard.”

J A Diley RIBA | Senior Architect

“Ryedale repaired ceiling plasterwork in the entrance lobby at Middlesbrough Central Library, a Grade-II listed building. They had a very professional attitude and satisfied all of our conservation officers’ requirements. There were no health and safety issues, and they worked to tight deadlines. The quality of work was good, and I would use them again.”
