As the years roll by, your oast house can look tired and faded. Without regular maintenance the appearance can become weathered, and the wood and ironwork can become rotten, decayed and at risk of leaks and water damage. With regular cleaning and repair work you can enjoy your oast for years to come, passing on your home to the next generation and beyond.
From kiln roof maintenance to oast cowl construction, restoration and cleaning, Dude & Arnette offer a range of repair and maintenance services for oast cowls, both inside and outside, across the UK.
Over the past seven decades we’ve worked on all stages of oast and cowl decay, and have restored and repaired cowls in even the most damaged of states. Although we will always try to restore a cowl and bring it back to its original glory, sometimes it just isn’t possible. In this instance we will advise you in advance and build you a traditional wooden cowl from scratch, using many of the same techniques our family used when we began in 1937.
The longer you wait for repair work or renovation to be carried out, the greater the risk of costly problems developing within the wood and iron work. We recommend regular maintenance – around every seven years – however if Dude & Arnette carried out the original repair work, it may be left a little longer between reviews.
