This old farmhouse was in desperate need of renovation. Another contractor had begun work on the repointing, but the client was unhappy with both the quality of their work and the pink colour the contractor had inexplicably chosen for the pointing mix. The client then contacted us. We removed both the new 'pink' pointing and the old cement pointing. We also removed the cement render that had been applied around the two windows, which had been put there to cover up the brick infills that had been added when the two windows had been enlarged. We then repointed the whole house in a natural NHL 3.5 lime and sharp sand mix, and reformed the surrounds of the two windows in Lithomex, along with numerous other quoins and rybats.
