Like many buildings it age Queensbury Court had been subject to the age of cement and was, in turn, covered in cementitious render. This was now beginning to cause issues internally as the moisture that would naturally escape through the brick work and mortar was being stopped by the render thus returning inside.
Scope of Work
Williams Restoration undertook the conservation and restoration of Queensberry Court by first removing all the cementitious render from the façade. Once this was done, the façade was left to ‘breath’ for a couple of days before being replaced with a historically matched Lime based render. The Lime based render not only is more aesthetically pleasing than the cement but its breathable property’s work with the historic fabric it sits on thus elevating the damp issues.

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.
