Lime Render provided to a Red-development in Birmingham’s St Paul’s square
The interesting project involved the removal of 230 sq metres of failing render.
Once removed the crumbing brickwork was stabilised with mechanically fixed clay fused brick mesh. This provided a sound substrate before the harling coat and the initial scratch coat.
The package also included the rebuilding and profiling of the top string course. Where completely broken away, the string course was painstakingly re-built with clay stainless steel mesh and Telling’s lime plaster.
No modern beads were used on the project. All corners and window reveals were traditionally formed with timbers.
More information on all these traditional techniques are available on request.
