Lime Pointing in Carden Cheshire

On this project in Cheshire we under took maintenance work to this large private house. Areas to the rear, side & front required Lime Pointing.

Our Team of Restoration Specialist had to carefully remove the existing Lime Pointing Mortar from the 2mm Ashlar Stone Block. We applied a new Lime Mortar carefully taping the joints on the stonework.

The works took 10 weeks to complete, with team of 4 specialists

Lime Pointing Cheshire

The Lime Pointing work on the front steps involved removing the existing Lime Mortar, this was done using a blade tool. Every care was take not to chip or mark the existing stone masonry. Once the existing Lime Mortar was remove we flushed the joint to remove all dust & debris. The joints was then left to dry.

Our Builders then applied a tape to the joints to prevent the Lime Mortar from staining the stone masonry. The masonry joints were then packed with a Lime Mortar, this was left till the following day before the tape was removed.

Most buildings that are pre 1919 are of solid wall construction and have been built using Traditional Lime Mortar. These building require Lime Pointing & Lime Plaster using Lime based products. This will insure the building can expel moisture from the solid wall construction.

If a cement based mortar has been used, this can lead to internal Damp Walls, Blown Plaster & Salt deposits.

Many of the Traditionally built building in and around the Chester & Cheshire area have been repaired or maintained with a cement based product.

The Maintenance of Old Building can save a small fortune in Restoration Cost.
