Good Brickwork.jpeg

Good Brickwork

This image shows an area of sound brickwork that did not require any work prior to having new render applied. The surface is sound and only minor damage has occurred to the face of the brickwork. This image is of the external face of the west elevation parapet wall, just below the chimney stack.

 

 

Defective Brickwork 1

This image shows an area of defective brickwork. Motor between the brickwork is heavily eroded requiring the installation of metal bars to provide sufficient structural strength. The surface of the brickwork is heavily damaged and required a bonding agent to be applied to make the surface ready for rendering. This image is of the internal face of the south elevation of the parapet wall.

Parapet Pillar.jpeg

Unstable Pillar

This pillar was found to be unstable once the render was removed. This pillar had to be taken down and fully rebuilt. This pillar is on the east elevation of the parapet wall.

 

 

Flaky Brickwork

Many areas of the parapet wall had loose and flaky brickwork. This had to be removed before any render could be applied to ensure that the render did not fail in the future.

 

 
Metal Strapping.jpeg

Metal Cornice Straps

The stone cornice that surrounds the base of the parapet wall is supported by copper straps that have failed. The failed straps have cause the cornice to crack, which has allowed water ingress and led to further decay. It was not known that these straps existed prior to the removal of the render.

 

 

Eroded Parapet Cornice

This area shows an area of the cornice at the base of the parapet wall. The area is heavily eroded due to water ingress and required removal and refitting with copper straps with some re-moulding.
