“We are driven to produce quality results and take great pride in our work.”

We are a well established building firm specialising in restoring period properties. We understand the importance of creating buildings fit for the 21st century lifestyles, whilst keeping the original character of the building.

Here’s what our customers have to say about us:

Revive & Restore does exactly what it says on the tin!

Revive & Restore employs real craftsmen who removed the concrete render from our 17th-century farmhouse, skilfully restore the damaged timber frame and windows and left us with a revived structure that will last for many generations to come. I am very pleased with the quality of their workmanship and the beauty of the finished project. I would have no hesitation in recommending Simon James and his team of craftsmen to anyone with a property to revive and restore.

Revive & Restore completely transformed our kitchen to produce a wonderful environment in our house. Throughout they kept us completely informed of progress and proved extremely flexible and understanding when we decided to change one or two things. From flooring to electrics to plumbing to carpentry their tradesmen were fantastic and really professional and the whole project was a joy to be part of.

Thank you Revive & Restore.

Award Winning Restoration

Specialising in working with listed buildings, we have won four Quality of Place awards, in the conservation category, from Suffolk Coastal District Council.


Working with our clients, we use our extensive experience and our own skilled craftsmen to revive period buildings. We offer the peace of mind of a professional company who cares about its work and reputation.

We hope Simon & your team will do more at the property as & when necessary. He has brought the place up to speed since we acquired it & we think he’s either a bit of a star or he knows craftsfolk who are! Many thanks.  J & A – Aldeburgh
