Wanstead E11

This Victorian house had undergone major alterations over the years, the stone built bay windows and ornate features had been removed, the timber sashes replaced with plastic framed double glazing and plastic cladding to the gables.  The entire building had been also coated with a strong cement render and painted, subsequently there was extensive damage to the soft red brick beneath the render.

Our services were sought to restore the masonry once the extent of the damage was evident, some of which may have been caused during the render removal by others.  We carried out the masonry cleaning, then brick repair & pointing samples were undertaken to establish a way forward, with a methodology in place we then “indented” the replacement bricks individually to cause minimal disturbance to the structure. Eventually all of the architectural features will be reinstated by us including the design and build of the stone bay windows, window heads, cills and corbels. The finished result will be a beautiful home that has fully restored to the original Victorian design.
