Enhancing your period property
Specialists In Traditional Paint...
At the Traditional Paint Co we are passionate about your old building. Our desire is to help make your own castle, church, barn, cottage or mansion, simply the best. As a result our knowledge and experience ensures we can advise you on the very best solutions (literally) to suit your period property.
For every historic building there is a specialist paint, coating or surface treatment that can enhance and protect it. We can help you select the right one for your home or building project. The Traditional Paint Company has been producing traditional paints and coatings for walls, timber and even metal for over 40 years, covering:
- Lead Based Paints
- Scumble Glaze
- Flat Oil Paints
- Ultra Matt Emulsions
- Linseed and Danish Oil Paints
- Oil Bound Distemper
- Chinese Wood Tung Oil
- Plinth Paints
- Brushing Beeswax in Turpentine
Eco friendly traditional Limewashes: These have been developed with historic conservation in mind. In fact we have been producing traditional exterior limewash to the Suffolk Preservation’s Society recipe, using only the finest ingredients, for more than 35 years and many listed and historic properties have been coated with them. Therefore our lime is traditional Shake Lime Putty that has been matured for a minimum of six months; we do not use the cheaper hydrated "bag lime" powder, available from builders merchants.
Top quality ingredients: At the Traditional Paint Company all our products are made to traditional recipes, many dating back centuries. We endeavour to adhere to these formulations, sourcing natural organic ingredients such as iron oxide, carbon black, red, yellow and maroon oxide, blue cobalt as well as many other natural earth materials. These colourants and all our ingredients are sourced from all four corners of the British Isles.
