36 Ulverscroft Road
Situated in East Dulwich, an area seriously effected by the bombings of WW2. The project at Ulvfrscroft Road was one of unknown quantities. This building had been covered head to toe in a system made popular in the 1920’s. Pebbledash. The cementitious pebbledash was causing issues internally after years of trapping moisture between itself and the original, Lime based, historic fabric of the building.
Scope of Work
Williams Restoration undertook the restoration of the external fabric of building. The first project was to remove the existing cementitious pebbledash from the facade. Once complete we then set out raking back the historic lime mortar where needed. Unfortunately over time due to the cementitious render the Lime mortar had disintegrated quite substantially and in turn, the surrounding brick work. This was then replaced with Lime based, sympathetic and historically matched mortar and finished to match the adjoining dwellings.

We worked with Williams on our RIBA award winning project The Sekforde, a Grade II Listed Regency period pub. The brief was to re-point the brickwork to the listed façade, which had been badly affected from the removal of cement based render that had been applied sometime around the 1930s...

The Williams Restoration team took on the whole job, from removing the cement render through to re-decoration. There's no avoiding the fact that this type of work is messy and sometimes noisy, but they tried hard to minimise nuisance to ourselves and our neighbours. They did a good job, and the facade now looks very smart and authentic.
