St Stephen’s Church, Kensington
Stonewest have been employed directly by the Church for works to the exterior and interior of St Stephen’s including stone cleaning, stone restoration and repairs, roofing, refurbishment of timber in the vestry and replacement of water drainage systems.
- Working in natural Hatham Park Bath stone, Stonewest have been restoring the weatherings to the original rag stone wall.
- Cementicious ‘strap’ pointing was carefully removed to cause minimum damage to the stone arrises before re-pointing using a hydraulic lime based mortar.
- The external walls were also repaired with new stone to match the existing.
- Stonewest expertise in JOS cleaning meant that the wet abrasive, used at low pressure, caused no damage to the Church stone dressings.
