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.
