At JKH Masonry Cleaning, we provide a range of stone cleaning services in Oxford, Bristol, Wiltshire, Swindon and surrounding areas. This includes paint removal. Modern thermoplastic paints were removed from the interior brickwork of a 17th Century Grade I listed Vyne House, as part of a refurbishment to the ‘Old Brew House Restaurant’.
Working closely with the requirements of the architect and conservation officer we were able to remove all unwanted paints, cleaning the stone and revealing unseen castellations in the brickwork whilst leaving evidence of previous coatings of lime wash.
