Edale - Lime pointing and Lead work
We were instructed by the National Trust to remove the Portland cement strap pointing that was was damaging the stone work and repoint with our in-house lime pointing mix which is pre approved for Peak District use, we were also asked to install some lead cavity trays to help with some damp issues inside the property. this required careful removal of the facing stonework and inserting a lead cavity tray into the wall to move moisture from the inside of the cavity to the outside.
While on site the scope included lime repointing outbuildings and extensive reinforcement of the roof structure of one of the properties barns, and rebuilding of the rear elevation to ensure the barn didn't collapse. Helicoil stainless steel rods where inserted to tie the corners together and new timbers bolted into the roof structure.
