Leslie Cornell Building Restoration Ltd were engaged to restore the breathability of this wonderful Georgian Farmhouse in Cornwall. The property was built in the mid 1800’s and is part of a complex of agricultural building.
The Farmhouse was suffering from trapped moisture within the walls, mainly due to the use of cement mortar pointing and non-breathable paint applications.
Our restoration works in Cornwall commenced with the raking out of the existing non-breathable cement pointing from the joints of the stonework, followed by the removal of non-breathable paint applications to the faces of the stone and brickwork.
After we removed the existing non-breathable materials, we than proceeded to repoint the stone and brick joints using an appropriate breathable Lime mortar.
Our clients were extremely pleased with the restoration works we undertook and provided us with a wonderful testimonial, which you can view on the Testimonial page of our website.
