Why use Fullers?

With five generations of experience, Fullers has always maintained a stable workforce. Traditional skills, many of which have been discarded by the industry as modern materials have taken over, are still taught and practiced by our craftspeople.

The company was established by Edward Fuller in 1872 and, with an uninterrupted trading history of 140 years, continues to be managed by the same family to this day. Throughout our long trading period, we have maintained an un-rivalled reputation for quality and reliability and have established trading relationships with customers that span more than half a century.

We have our own joinery facility that can manufacture matching timber profiles and bespoke items using good quality, sustainably sourced timber, and can obtain sympathetic materials such as naturally hydraulic lime to ensure that as much of the historic fabric of a structure can be maintained. The use of traditional materials and methods can be combined with modern techniques to comply with today’s building standards.


We estimate that, during our long history, we have carried out projects with a cumulative overall value of more than £350m. In a typical trading year, we will complete £3m of restoration and repair works, mostly to historic buildings. Because of the specialised nature of our business, each project is unique and our experience is interesting and varied. We are happy to provide a list of recent projects to demonstrate typical types of work and client.



The team at Fullers changed my perception of the building trade; there was not one detail that was not completed to my satisfaction; their work was tidy, their craftmanship superb and they were always on time.

As a company, Fullers are helpful, and always make every effort to resolve any problems that arise in a practical and economical way. They are always respectful to clients, and to the context (some of which require great sensitivity) in which they work. 

The Soane Museum is a Grade I listed building and we expect the highest standard of workmanship and delivery from any company that carries out work for us. I am happy to say that Fullers have always carried out their work for us to our complete satisfaction.
