"My wife and I live in a heritage property, some 180 years old. Of the four double chimney stacks one has been leaking badly into the house. We have been fortunate enough to find Leyden, who in our opinion, displayed exceptional levels of craftsmanship. The chimney needed all of its render removed, accounting to some two tons, and re-plastering in traditional lime and horsehair. This was all hand formed without modern aids and the result is spectacular. My wife and I have no hesitation in recommending Leyden to anyone in need of preserving an old building to a very high standard."
"The team at Leyden were incredibly responsive, fast and the standard of work was superb. Would highly recommend Hannah and Matt and their team."
"Leyden's are reliable and deliver on time as promised. The plasterers did an excellent job, we are thrilled to have very smooth walls and ceilings. They worked in a polite and happy manner and tidied up afterwards. Would highly recommend. Thank you Hannah, Matt and Adam's team."
"Quick response, good quote, and professional work. A great product and finish. Very happy and would recommend in a heartbeat if you're looking for traditional plastering."
