Plymouth Hoe Residence

Insurance & restoration projects

At FH Crocker & Co. we undertake all kinds of internal & external restoration projects. Our Admiral House internal insurance project shows how we replaced a beautifully ornate lath and plaster ceiling complete with decorative cornice and lincrusta decorative features – all of which had been badly damaged by a water leak. In contrast, our work on the Plymouth Hoe private residence involved restoring external lime render to its former glory. View both projects via the links below.

We used F.H. Crocker to undertake significant amounts of cornicing in our Victorian home. Their work was extremely good and their staff conscientious, polite and TIDY(!). I would have no hesitation recommending them.

We are very happy customers. The new cornice in our living room is looking amazing, great workmanship indeed. Fantastic customer service and fantastic craftsmanship by the company’s employees. Thank you very much.

THIS COMPANY IS AMAZING! We asked them to replicate some Cornice we had in our lounge to match, I was willing to live with the thought I might see a join as it was going from old to new but you literally can't see a thing. Also, they were so helpful when deciding what we should go for in our Dining Room and it looks great. The team that came on the day were so professional and kind. I would recommend these guys to anyone. 5 out of 5 stars isn't enough of a rating for how good they are!

Replacement ceiling - We had an old lath and plaster ceiling taken down, along with an intricate coving and large ceiling rose. We were very happy with the result, which is exactly in the style of the original. The team minimised the dust ( never easy taking down a ceiling!) and left the house clean and tidy. The work was done exactly when promised and within the suggested timescale. We were especially grateful the work was completed within our very tight schedule. All at a very reasonable price. Many thanks.

Our new home was hardly new. It’s a listed Georgian terrace with 200 years of paint and bad repairs masking its underlying elegance. Finding contractors to restore it properly has not been easy. F. H. Crocker has been a godsend. They understand old buildings and helped us decide what could be renovated and what needed to be replaced. The painstaking work uncovering our detailed plaster cornices was worth every penny. The replacements for broken and missing bits of our acanthus leaf modillions are simply amazing reproductions. The professionalism of the team and the care they took during the project made them a delight to deal with. Five stars!
