Historic & Traditional Heritage

With thanks to the Master Craftsman, we are passionate about preserving our Australian heritage for future generations to enjoy! Lancaster Painters Australia follow the Burra Charter for all historical heritage conservation, restoration, reconstruction and beautification house and commercial work. We are experienced in reproducing the same paint methods and materials as the historical masters of the past – in design, colour, texture, paints, materials and technique. By understanding documentary evidence, we are able to accurately reproduce the style, character and look of the original period. See our comprehensive list of heritage services.

Traditional decorative finishes boast marquetry, stencilling, gilding (gold leaf, silver leaf etc.), scumbling, faux marbling (hand painted marble effect), wood graining, decorative and ornate ceiling roses and cornices, hand painted motifs and faux (fake) finishes, Gothic and Pugin designs, copper antiquing, glass art and so much more. For a more comprehensive list, see our heritage decorative services.

“We are undertaking a staged maintenance program on our heritage listed property… This includes extensive lead paint removal and remediation, followed by painting to a heritage colour scheme. We contracted Lancaster Painters Australia Pty Ltd for this work in early 2012, primarily because of their technical knowledge and previous experience. We also appreciated their flexibility with a program that had to react to unforeseen delays and discoveries, and their ability to work around this and accommodate us. The first stage work was recently completed whilst we remained resident on site, with minimal disruption to our family and without any delays. We found Gary to be courteous and helpful throughout, and generous with his time, samples and advice. The work completed so far has been of the highest standard and we are very happy with the outcome. We will continue to use Lancaster Painters Australia Pty Ltd for the remainder of our project and recommend them unreservedly.” Allan Martin.
