At Hirst Conservation we are able to offer the whole range of joinery services to include restoration and conservation, as well as the manufacture of bespoke doors, windows, staircases, panelling, furniture and structural and non structural timber repairs. We can undertake carving and veneering works as well as the restoration of fire damaged timber.
