King St, Hammersmith
Service: Cleaning & Restoration
Client: Morgan Management
Restoration of a stunning old building in Hammersmith. The exterior façade had suffered neglect over recent years and required firstly a makeover on a strict budget and secondly some desperate stone repairs creating a very unsafe environment for 3rd parties below.
Due to location ProAltus decided to scaffold the entire façade. All friable and loose stone and brick work was removed prior to DOFF steam cleaning. The cleaning was very delicate due to the soft nature of the brickwork and decorations. The clean was administered to provide a natural look with original patina remaining intact. The entire slate roof was removed to replace defective battens and provide a breathable membrane. Slates were salvaged were possible and reused. All windows refurbished and sealed. Leadwork replaced. Extensive stonework repairs and lime tuck pointing undertaken.
