Why live with black depressing beams?
We can remove paint, varnish and stain from oak beams, revealing:
|Carpenters' marks||Cut into timbers|
|Adzing pitch marks||Dimple shaped cuts of the adze|
|Pit saw marking||Hand saw cuts|
|Candle taper burns||Very attractive tear shaped burns|
|Dates and initials||Construction or refurbishment dates|
|Smoke contamination||Evidence of pre-chimney buildings|
|Beam paintings||Early decoration|
|Decorative panelling||Early decoration|
|Witch marks||Held to ward off evil spirits|
We can turn a drab room with dark depressing beams into a room full of warm golden oak, full of historic character and charm, exposing all that has been hidden away for centuries.
