Facade Restoration Works

This client had been suffering from long term water ingress issues, staining to the ground level decorated stone façade, and falling masonry.  Following investigations it was discovered that the first floor rendered façade was boss and allowing significant water penetration into the building and the stonework.  The render failure had arisen through failed roofing slates and corroded cast iron rainwater goods.  Some of the works involved in the repairs are listed below:

Building:  Removal of failed decorative plaster render and mouldings to first floor elevation · Removal of paint to uncovered random natural stone external wall · Removal of cement pointing to random natural stone wall · Repair of decorative natural stone mouldings with specialist stone repair compound · Re-pointing of random natural stone wall with natural lime mortar

Roofing:  Removal of failed timber snow boards · Extensive slate repairs · Re-bedding natural stone copes

Plumbing:  Replacement of cast iron rainwater goods and pipework

Decoration:  Redecoration of the external facade
