Brighton Mouldings and Decorative Ceilings

The city of Brighton has 24 Grade I and 72 Grade II* listed buildings (source: British Listed Buildings), many of which contain ornate mouldings and decorative plaster ceilings. Brighton mouldings have no discernible unique features relating to location, however, types of enrichment found on cornice and ceiling decorations can often reference a buildings age or history. When undertaking repairs to plasterwork in listed buildings, you should generally replace like for like, and we would advise you seek the guidance of Brighton & Hove City Council before starting any work.

Decorative ceilings, coving and cornice can be vulnerable to moisture damage. Should this occur in your property, usually evidenced by staining, discolouration or collapse, you should contact an expert such as ourselves who can advise and inspect the affected areas prior to any building work being undertaken. Good areas that remain undamaged may be used to assist with reinstating the decorative plasterwork, making it as good as new.

External and cast stone mouldings

Decorative enrichments extend beyond internal plaster coving and ceiling roses, often adorning a properties external facias, soffits, windows and doorways. Sometimes carved from stone, these enrichments can now be produced more efficiently from materials such as Jesmonite.

Using Jesmonite AC730, we can produce external cornices, facias, architraves, door and window surrounds, garden features and more, either using stock moulds or modelling to a specific size of profile specified by an architect or client. These enrichments look and feel like natural stone but are lighter in weight and more cost effective to produce, making them ideal for new build properties looking to create a classic aesthetic or a premium look with that all important first impression wow-factor!
