Solicitors Office – Cleaning & Repair to Stonework

This office is a listed building and suffered from water ingress through several areas where the pointing had failed and the stonework had deteriorated beyond a point where it could be saved. Therefore we cleaned the whole facade prior to carrying out the repair works – which included – mortar repairs using hydraulic lime mortar /chopping out parts of individual stones and replacing with a similar stone / removing whole stones and replacing with new hand carved mouldings. The Local Listed Buildings Officer didn’t want the building to be over cleaned or for it to lose its ‘patina’.
