Job Specification

The paint was partially removed but work was delegated to us as the previous contractor was unable to complete it. Before the beginning of removing paint from brickwork, we performed a full job specification. We made an evaluation of the brickwork condition to choose the right method of removing the paint.

Brick Paint Removal

Next, we removed paint from brick using superheated steam. The temperature of the steam breaks the bond between the paint and the surface causing absolutely no damage to the brick surface.

Lime Mortar Repointing

The client chose flush type pointing. What distinguishes this type of pointing is that it gives a rough “old look” appearance.
