Conservation of listed buildings using traditional materials and skills is our passion.
LSR took on a Building Conservation Specialist project to do some brick repairs-pointing and build walls using lime mortars to the acceptance of the Conservation officer and Architects in charge of this project.
This was a grade 2 listed building and we had lots of guidelines to follow to preserve the interest of the building. London Structural Repairs operatives repointed the entire building using specialist lime mortars, using our experience and knowledge to do a high quality job.
The type of pointing used on this project was Flush Pointing. Flush pointing, is a very specialist kind of brick pointing. No cement is used in the mortar as it is a mixture of sand and lime. Flush pointing is normally used on old walls, or front sides and back facades of your property
The process for this type of brick pointing is to over fill your brick joints, then with your pointing trowel, scrap the mortar flush with the brickwork, and lightly rub up with a wire brush
When done correctly, flush Pointing leaves a rich look, and is a wonderful form of brick pointing. However, we must point out that flush pointing needs to be done by a lime and pointing Building Conservation Specialist for a hassle free application.
