Leslie Cornell Building Restoration Ltd were engaged to undertake traditional restoration works at this 18th Century stone property in Cornwall.

18th Century House Lime Works Cornwall 1a

All of our restoration works were sympathetic to the buildings substrate and included:

Lime Repointing
We carefully removed the existing pointing applications form the stonework joints and raked them out to the required depths. Some areas of the faces of the stonework had been previously painted and this too was carefully removed and cleaned. With the stonework and joints adequately cleaned and raked out, we then proceeded to introduce an appropriate Lime mortar repointing application.

Lime Rendering
It was decided that some areas of the external walls of the property would be better suited to being rendered. Using an appropriate Lime mortar, we introduced a 3-coat render application to the specified areas. The chimney stack was one of these areas where we removed the existing applications and re-rendered with a suitable 3-coat Lime mortar.

Window Sills
Some of the existing window sills had deteriorated and become ineffective. We removed the inadequate sills and replaced them with Brazilian Natural Solid Slate sills.
