The Chapel, Lincoln's Inn
The cleaning of Portland stone finishes to the North and East elevations followed by specialist repointing.
The works involved:
- Existing render and render repairs were removed and following preparation of the substrate, these areas were then re-rendered in mixes designed to match the original in terms of strength, durability and appearance.
- Flat/ ashlar areas and heavily moulded features were recreated in this way.
- Elsewhere rusting iron cramps were removed and stainless steel restraint fixings introduced and tracery to windows were indented with new stone.
- The provision of scaffold access was also our responsibility as was the removal, repair and replacement of timber window frames.
