Grade II Listed Cottage in Preston, Lancashire

Lime Rendering Contractors working on Grade II Listed Building in Preston, Lancashire

On this Lime Rendering project in Preston Lancashire we were asked to remove the existing cement based render from the brick wall. The project took 3 weeks to complete. Our lime renderers applied a NHL lime render to the brick wall.

After we removed the cement based render from the wall we used our low pressure wet blasting system to remove the modern paint from the brickwork. The system works on the same principle as a Sandblasting or Sandblaster. The differance with our machine is that it works at a much lower pressure than a traditional sand blasting system. The Sandblasting system can also be used on brickwork, stonework & other backgrounds. The brickwork had to be cleaned to remove the modern paint so the lime render could adhere well to the brick. Modern Sandblasting can take up to 5mm off the surface of the sub-straight. Our Low Pressure Cleaning system can remove paint & other desposits without damaging the sub-straight.
