About Us

Mike Rickards

I am from a previous restoration background and since 1999 had been driving force behind two other respected companies in this field. We established Rickards Period Plastering in April 2012 and with extensive background catalogue of work provide quality plastering using Lime, Clay and Eco renders through-out the East Anglia region.

I was proud to achieve a BSc (Hons) in Building surveying in 2008 and with this and knowledge of the complex natural plaster/render market strive to provide an un-rivalled personal, professional quality application that we put my name to.

From the humble 15th Century understated cottage to the ornate Georgian facade...internal flatwork to bespoke designed pargeting works we enjoy the challenge and relish the unique and unusual of the outcome of a fine project completed that we can take a step back and say....’we did that’.

Our experience has been built upon undertaking the projects that others may shy away from, whether due to material use, design, access or other site specific challenge.

Rickards Period Plastering Ltd

The establishment of Rickards Period Plastering Ltd allowed us to expand our traditional skill set as an experienced exponent of the vernacular haired chalk mix along with the Innovative and pioneering approach extending into the Eco market where modern and unique building materials, such as wood fibre insulation board and hemp construction require a similar sympathetic approach.

Our extensive knowledge of local construction and the built environment along with familiarity with complexities of issues arising from period property housing stock we provide appropriate material applications upon the delicate building fabric and unique build materials of East Anglia, whether these are, timber frame, clay construction, hemp, flint, soft red brickwork.

Through the many contacts that we have built up over the years we have a network of capable trade professionals including: - Framers, Carpenters, Decorators and Masons/bricklayers, able to compliment project requirements.
