Im renovating my 2 bed Victorian Terrace (1880) in East London and would like to repair and decorate all concrete/stone/plaster(?) areas around the exterior windows including the window-sills and the decorative pillars which are currently in very poor condition:
My builder has recommended we replace the pillars rather than try to repair them as the decorative detail has already been greatly reduced due to past repairs by previous owners.
Is this the right course of actions to take?
Where can we source traditional looking decorative pillars from?
Any other tips whilst undertaking this sort of work… materials and methods our builder should be using etc?
