Architectural Ceramics & Tiles

Lincoln Conservation are able to undertake the cleaning, conservation and repair of glazed architectural ceramics found within historic buildings.

The services offered include:

  • Condition surveys to determine appropriate treatment strategy and to provide recommendations for preventive care and maintenance.
  • Conservation treatments in situ such as surface cleaning, consolidation, removal of inappropriate coatings and overpaint, repairs, filling and reintegration of losses.
  • Removal of tiles where too damaged to work on situ, followed by conservation and repair in the laboratory and mounting onto a lightweight rigid support. They can then be replaced in situ if it is safe to do so, displayed elsewhere, or held in archive storage.
  • Replication of missing tiles based on evidence discovered in situ or during archival research.
