Pebbledash Removal - Case Study
Case study of pebbledash removal and brickwork restoration of a Victorian house in Hackney, London.
Prior to the beginning of removing pebbledash, we performed a full job specification. Sample made revealed that facade was plastered with pebbledash to cover bricks severely damaged by erosion.
Removing pebbledash confirmed assumptions, as it exposed damaged bricks underneath.
We had to rebuild 90% of the facade. We have used yellow stock handmade, matching size and colour bricks for replacement.
Brick Pointing Samples
The client wanted to compare different types of brick pointing, so we made samples of lime mortar flush, weather struck and tinted penny roll pointing.
Weather Struck Brick Pointing
The client chose weather struck pointing. What distinguishes this type of pointing is that it will give a high resistance to adverse weather.
