This Grade II listed stone cottage in Cornwall required restoration works to the existing external Lime pointing.
To repair and preserve this historic building we, Leslie Cornell Building Restoration Ltd, were engaged to undertake sympathetic and breathable pointing works.
Before our works were allowed to commence, we were required to provide Lime pointing sample panels to discharge conditions set out in the Listed Building Consent Approval. We provided 3 different sample panels for consideration and Cornwall Council decided upon the most appropriate one and discharged the conditions.
The next stage of our works was to carefully remove the existing cement and Lime-based pointing applications and rake out the joints of the stonework to the required depths.
Our works were completed with the introduction of the agreed Lime mortar pointing application to the exposed stonework joints.
