With Multiple cleaning and paint removal methods available we are able to tackle most scenarios in a sympathetic and efficient manner, to specification.

We are registered as a National Trust Contractor and have been sub-contracted to work on World Heritage Structures, English Heritage Properties, British Waterways properties and many private homes, public and commercial properties.

Below are a few of our highlighted projects.

Paint removal (modern pliable & cement based coatings) – Stone Cleaning – Brick & Tile Cleaning – Wood Beam Restoration – Concrete Structure Restoration – Buildings – Monuments – Steel & Cast Iron Structures – Architectural Items

Fluted detailing – Original shape lost due to the shear volume of coatings
Removal required three steps using two processes.
1st – Thermatech Superheated Steam – removal of many pliable top coating paint layers
2nd & 3rd – Restoration blasting using a fine friable light abrasive – removal of numerous cement based coatings.  This was accomplished in two stages with skilled blasting techniques taking all the coatings off to the base concrete.
