Rendering in E11
Posted 5 September 2016
Job Description:
I have recently had a damp survey completed on my property which has highlighted the following areas which need to be addressed. The bulk of the job is in removing and replacing the render to the front and back of my mid terrace property but there are other things in the report as well. NB - I would like each part of the project quoted separately in case I have to stagger the work due to financial reasons. 1. We recommend that the pointing on the chimney stack is raked out, and repointed using a cement based mortar. At this time the Flaunching should be replaced using a cement based mortar. Any bricks found to be cracked, damaged, eroded by 10% or more, porous or blown due to moisture absorbtion, should be replaced. 2. We recommend that the missing parapet capping stone is replaced. 3. We recommend that the deteriorated and cement based render is removed with care from the front and rear of the property, so not to cause unnecessary damage to the brick work beneath. 4. We recommend that any deteriorated pointing is raked out, and repointed using a breathable lime based mortar. Any bricks found to be cracked, damaged, eroded by 10% or more, porous or blown due to moisture absorbtion, should be replaced. 5. We recommend that thereafter the elevations are rendered using a breathable lime based render, and for decor a lime wash or breathable silicate based paint should be used. 6. The ground levels should be lowered to the front and rear as discussed. As a compromise additional drainage channels could be installed. 7. The window pillars to the front should be prepared and decorated using a breathable silicate paint.
