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 Lime Pointing work 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.
The works took 10 weeks to complete, with team of 4 specialists
