Leslie Cornell Building Restoration Ltd were engaged to undertake breathability maintenance works at this Historic Granite Cottage in Cornwall.
We carefully removed the existing non-breathable cement-based render applications to the historic wall of the rear elevation and raked out the joints of the stonework to the required depths. This was followed with the introduction of a breathable Lime mortar pointing application.
We then turned our attention to the chimney stack where we applied the same Lime pointing processes as above. Included in the Chimney Repairs was reflaunching to the top of the chimney stack and the introduction of a Pepperpot chimney cowl.
