Job Specification

Before the beginning of removing paint, we performed a full job specification. We made a sample of paint removal to evaluate the condition of the bricks and to choose the right method of removing the paint.

Repointing Preparation

As the job required brick repointing as well, we had raked out old brick pointing, before removing paint.

Brick Paint Removal

Next, we removed paint from bricks using sodablasting cleaning. Accordingly, to brick restoration principles, sodablasting is the most effective method for removing water-based paint.

Lime Mortar Repointing

The client chose weather struck pointing. What distinguishes this type of pointing is that it will give a high resistance to adverse weather.
