Specialists in Restoration, Repair and
Maintenance of Historic and Listed Buildings

Welcome to Mainstay Projects

The successful restoration and renovation of period properties relies on a unique and essential skillset.

We’ve fully planned and project-managed a wide variety of specialist building projects, from a six-storey Georgian conversion in Bath, to the design and build of a farmhouse kitchen in rural Somerset.

We fuse traditional methods with contemporary craftsmanship to create a look that will stand the test of time.

Always pushing the boundaries of skills and materials.

What Out Clients Say...


    On behalf of Batcombe Parish Council, I want to extend a massive thank you to all of the guys at Mainstay involved on our project to install new play equipment in the Batcombe Playing Field. From the onset you were full of helpful advice and great design ideas and went out of your way to source innovative and quality products for our unusual project. Once on site, you were all polite and hardworking, and never complained if we threw another job at you out of the blue. The quality of the workmanship has been commented on by many members of our community, and the reaction to the project has been wholly positive. It simply looks outstanding and we couldn’t be happier. Not only this, but you completed the job on time and not a penny over budget! Well done and thank you to all involved.

    Apart from the quite exceptional quality of the woodwork that Mainstay do, we are particularly impressed by the breadth and depth of skills that the company offers. Whether it be roof and chimney work, or designing, building and installing a fitted kitchen, it’s great to know that they can handle it all. It’s also comforting to have a long term relationship with a company that really knows how to take care of older buildings in the correct way. We’ve had several jobs done by Mainstay now, large and small. While unexpected things come up, their quoted price has always been the final price – great for keeping our budget under control.

    We asked Anthony at Mainstay to help us design and build an extension with a difference. The challenge was to make it feel like a train carriage. Ant was exceptionally creative and really pushed the boundaries if the design and materials. Nothing was a problem for Mainstay. Everything was completed on time and in good time and, most importantly of all, they listened to what we wanted and were really great to have around.

    Mainstay Projects have done loads for work for us… they did the whole renovation of a grade 1 listed building 10 flats, and 3 new shop fits for our Travel Agents too, as well as more routine day to day stuff. Anthony’s a thoroughly decent guy, conscientious, skilled and enthusiastic about his work… we couldn’t recommend them more highly.
