Organ Pipe Restoration

For church organ restoration projects Butler and Castell can use a unique water gilding technique on both wooden and lead organ pipes which has a greatly superior finish as an alternative to oil gilding. We can also conserve and restore paintwork on organ pipes in most cases.

With our clean and large workshop, we can accommodate very large lead pipes which need to be kept in an upright position to avoid them becoming distorted. We will carry out this service at very competitive prices.

We can offer estimates, condition and conservation reports including copies for insurance companies for all work that we undertake.

The gilding of the organs pictured was undertaken on behalf of Bower and Co.


About Our Work

We are experts at conservation and restoration which means we get to use our knowledge to help specialist organ restorers with the aesthetics to bring these musical instruments back to full glory. If you have a project you would like to talk about please call us.

We all understand the importance of our organ, so it was lovely to work with Butler & Castell because they really cared for and restored a much-loved instrument. Thank you all.
