Repairing or replacing damaged stonework and brickwork
Patio & Path Cleaning – without using High Pressure water to damage stonework
Wet or Dry Sandblasting / Blast Cleaning / Shot Blasting for:
Removal of Paint from Timber Beams – Strip wooden beams either prior to treating for woodworm or just to leave a natural finish. Original timber beams and panelling that have had years of accumulated paint or stain applied, can be cleaned back to reveal the wood in its natural state. Renovations to older properties can be greatly enhanced by cleaning the existing timbers and allowing the natural colour of the wood to be restored.
New oak structures or extensions can be blasted to remove staining and grime especially to remove the saw marks made when the wood is cut
Shot Blasting Metal.
Cleaning rust and paint from any steelwork / metalwork including plant and machinery. Applying a primer / red oxide if required.
Remove paint and limewash from most surfaces either in preparation for further works e.g. before wall can be rendered or to leave a natural finish on either stonework or brickwork.
Project Management – all aspects of running building projects – especially in the conservation arena. This includes organising workflow and liaising with everyone concerned from client to architect to suppliers and sub contractors.
