The front elevations of this Old Chapel and Schoolhouse were Lime re-pointed in Cornwall.
We established from the outset that all stonework was to be professionally cleaned and then an introduction of a specific blend of sand and Lime mortar was to be used to re-point these wonderful buildings.
The stain glass windows and ornate stonework were also cleaned and some repairs were made. Lime pointing in Cornwall provides a heritage building with many of the benefits it originally had.
Low-level damp was a problem in this property as it had thick cement pointing. Once raked out, and test panels for the final colour were agreed upon, we set about re-pointing the stonework in Lime. As you can see there was quite a transformation.
In addition we have numerous examples of our Lime pointing in Cornwall throughout this website.
