Superficial works to improve and repair the external façade of the property. The timber frame of the first-floor jetty, along with later alterations, were exposed during the removal of the modern render. Duttons for Buttons inhabits 32 Coppergate which was originally a larger 15th century timber framed building, which also comprised 28 and 30 Coppergate. The property is Grade II* Listed and sits within an area of archaeological and historical significance. The building at 28 and 30 Coppergate features a shallow first-floor jetty and a second-floor jetty. At 32 Coppergate the first-floor has a deep jetty the depth of the second-floor jetty which is either a later extension or original porch feature. The exposed timbers were primarily from the first-floor jetty and included the bressummer. Two phases of lath-and-plaster wall render were also identified as well as the original plaster and brick infill and the later modern cement render. On the ground floor a timber post and post past were exposed to the left of the shop frontage. The post supported a first-floor beam and had been repaired with the addition of smaller timber planks and posts. In general, there was deterioration in a number of the timbers, particularly from woodworm. This was most visible in the ground floor timbers where the original post had rotted away nearly entirely at its base.
