Situated close to Hampton Court Palace, Hansler Grove is a building with similar Georgian influences. Unfortunately over the years the building has been subject to questionable repair methods and materials. Williams Restoration were contacted to offer a consultancy regarding the front facade and offer advice on how to reverse the effects of poor workmanship. Following meetings with the client and undertaking several on-site samples, Williams Restoration were awarded the works.
Scope of Work
Williams Restoration undertook the restoration and conservation of the frontal facade. This included undertaking a full façade clean with our specialist ThermaTech modular cleaning system. A system created with the environment in mind. Energy efficiency, water consumption and its low emissions makes it one of the leading resources for an environmentally friendly company to have. Once complete we removed the cementitious mortar and replaced this with breathable Lime mortars using both the Medieval Tuck pointing technique and a Weatherstruck Techniques. These methods were agreed with the client following trials on the facade during the consultation period. Williams also undertook some in-situ repairs to the mouldings above the doorway and windows.

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.
