Located in a Conservation Area, this property was suffering from rising and penetrating damp which required a number of applications to remedy the situation. These included a complete lime mortar re-point and the re-rendering of both gable ends. After a number of different mortar samples were considered, the front of the property was re-pointed with a gauged chardstock, lime putty and crushed charcoal mortar. The mortar blended effortlessly with the lias stone and has stabilised the masonry for years to come.

When we bought our home little did we know the extent of the problems that we would come up against. We expected some issues with an old building but would’ve been completely swamped had we not got Zachary and the boys from Woodlouse Conservation involved when we did. The guys were absolutely spot on throughout the course of what has been extensive work on our home and we are extremely happy with the service they provided.
