Period Restoration Scarborough
Found Millholme Restorations from a web search having had some difficulty finding a local builder to undertake extensive repairs of badly spalled brickwork in a newly purchased 1869 Victorian Schoolhouse. Our surveyor had indicated that use of lime mortar was essential, and this required a specialist firm.
Your cleaning and repointing works have attracted a great deal of attention; I’m told we are, more than ever, an outstanding feature of the village. Thank you again for all the care and work you and your men put into the old house.

John, just wanted to say many thanks to you and your team, my house looks brilliant and is the envy of all my neighbours, I’m sure you be getting some more business in the neighbourhood soon. I’d also like to say a special thanks for, despite the less than great weather, keeping to your time schedules (and the agreed budget) and for sorting out and project managing the scaffolders, sandblasters, roofers, decorators etc, you certainly kept my stress levels low throughout the whole process.
Jonathan Smith, Northgate, Baildon
I am just writing to thank you greatly for the remedial work that you and your company have done to our property. The building now looks fantastic and has received many favourable comments. You have put back features on the stonework that disappeared many years ago, that I thought impossible to recreate. Thank you again.

Millholme Restorations have completed work to an excellent standard in repointing and restoring stonework to several of our buildings in recent years. They have been invaluable in providing specialist advice in relation to the maintenance of our stone built properties.

Excellent restoration company
We used Millholme Restorations to repoint our eighteenth century brick built Barn conversion. John and his team did an amazing job and transformed the exterior of the property. The team were very professional, friendly and diligent, always leaving the site clean and tidy at the end of each day. We would highly recommend John and his team for any restoration work to a period property. Thank you for the excellent and sympathetic repointing job.
Fantastic job done
Full pointing of our Victorian end terrace. Very happy with the whole experience of using John and his team and would highly recommend. Extremely neat and thorough. A really fantastic job done by the whole team who are friendly and down to earth.
From the very beginning of my contact with John, when I phoned him to get a quote, he has always done what he said he would do and when he said he would do it.
His professional advice and expertise and choice of materials was applied to the removal of existing render and pointing and cleaning and re-pointing with lime mortar that together with the formation of new openings and replacement of some stone sills has resulted in a first class restoration. Internally the sensitive exposure and cleaning of stonework and structural timber has added to the character of the property. The finished stonework has transformed my cottage and has drawn unsolicited praise from everyone who sees it. I would thoroughly recommend John to anyone needing restoration.
All the workmen were courteous and friendly, very unobtrusive, a good job, very efficient with minimum fuss and little disruption.
