David's experience and craftsmanship were invaluable in sensitively restoring a high ceiling as part of the renovation of our Victorian apartment. His good advice ensured that the plaster cornice and centre rose were in the correct scale and sympathetic style for such a large room. We were impressed with the quality and efficient installation of the plaster mounds. We absolutely recommend Abby Mouldings
Hi Dave. Just wanted to drop you an email to thank you and your team for such a fantastic job on our dining room. The advice and choice of moulding really suit the room. The friendly service provided made this a really pleasurable experience. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends looking for similar work. Thanks again.
We bought our 160 year old house 11 years ago and have been gradually restoring it. Neglect and inappropriate repairs by previous owners had taken their toll. A leaking roof had caused severe damp in one of the chimneys. Although I had re roofed the property, the external wall was unable to breath due to previous repairs with sand / cement / gypsum combined with a sand / cement render externally. Trapped moisture had caused damage to the external wall and a section of internal cornice to become damaged beyond repair. As a chartered surveyor I knew that we needed specialist help from a company who would understand how to repair an old building using traditional materials / techniques. Whilst I undertook the structural work myself using lime mortars, we employed Abbey Mouldings to undertake the lime plasterwork and replace the cornicing to match the existing. From the very first meeting, we were in safe hands with Abbey Mouldings. Owner Dave was attentive and was always available with help and advice. The work was undertaken by expert plasterers to the very highest of standards. We were kept fully informed at each stage of the work, they turned up when they said they would and always put in a proper days work. As someone who works in construction I can honestly say I am delighted with results and have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
Amazing ceiling roses…. I visited Abby Mouldings in Devon as recommended by a friend, I was not dissapointed. The range of plaster mouldings was vast from ceiling roses to dado rails, fireplaces, skirting and amazingly they could match my existing cornice, which was a sorry state, to a new cornice. When the mouldings were completed they were expertly fitted along with plaster work completed to reveal a trylu beautiful finish. I would recommend the company very highly. I called up to make an appointment to have a look round the showroom, seeing the workshop too was great! the fireplaces looked amazing, I was considering an expensive Marble one but now i’m saving a fortune, thanks Dave!
Just a quick note to say… Thank you so much for the excellent job your team did on our coving recently. As you know we were dissapointed to have to lose the original coving due to our renovations, so being able to bring the house back to it’s former glory with the new coving and cornicing has really transformed the house in my view. You and your team were flexible and delivered ahead of schedule, thanks again!
Abby Mouldings were recommended by our builders, Nomad Construction of Dartmouth. We wanted a plaster cornice for our dining room to co exist with the beautiful, large Victorian moulding in the adjoining principle room of our Victorian property. We sent Dave at Abby Mouldings photos of the cornice and he met us on site with a number of similar designs to chose from, he also offered an option to have a template made of the original moulding if we preferred. We had the template made and the resulting cornice is magnificant – it looks just like the original and was carefully and expertly fitted by Abby Mouldings, transforming the space. Dave also advised on suitable cornices for the bedrooms to suit the size of the rooms and the age of he property, and now fitted they look like they have always been there. The detailing has given the rooms much needed character and we liked the effect so much we had a plaster cornice fitted in the kitchen too! Abby Mouldings have been professional and courteous throughout, gave a prompt and efficient service, and we are delighted with their work. Dear Dave, We cannot thank you and your team enough for the fantastic work you have done in creating the most beautiful cornicing for our new home. The cornices have made such a huge improvement to all of the rooms and the craftsmanship that has been applied to put up these architectural improvements (that everyone will notice if not only because I will point them out to everyone) is truly appreciated by both of us. Your work must give you so much pleasure to see the significant improvement that your craftsmanship brings to people’s homes, and other properties you work on. We feel extremely fortunate to have benefited from the skills of you and your team and know that we will always think of you all for all the years we are lucky enough to live in our home. We are truly grateful and thank you does not express our gratitude enough.
