Church claims – the value of using a specialist
07 June 2019
Our understanding of churches helps us to provide caring support when you need it most. Our new claims video reveals more about what you can expect.
When churches become damaged they often require specialist attention and repairs in keeping with the church’s original design. From fragile materials and historic features, to the special place they hold in the heart of the community, there’s more to most churches than meets the eye.
In our new claims video, two of our church customers share their experience with our award-winning1 claims team:
St Wilfrid’s Church
Originally built in 1865, St Wilfrid’s Church in Haywards Heath was damaged by vandals in 2018.
Lesley Pidgeon arrived to unlock the church one morning and was shocked to find a brick had been thrown through a window. This senseless attack had damaged some of the beautiful stained glass panels and our team were tasked with sourcing an exact colour match to restore the glass to its original design.
Holy Trinity Church
At Holy Trinity Church in Mapperley, a local resident walked by the church one morning to discover the gates within the lychgate had been stolen.
These gates formed part of a listed war memorial, so the challenge was to restore them sympathetically and in keeping with the original design. The team set about sourcing a blacksmith to recreate the brackets and tracking down the original materials.
