Cleaning Portland Stone Facade at St Pius X Church

Portland stone required cleaning, graffiti removal and stone repair due to water ingress.

Cleaned using low pressure steam, biocide and chemical to remove carbon build up.

Poultice applied to remove aged graffiti.

Raked out joints and repointed with lime mortar allowing the stone to dry out through the mortar.

Repairs were carried out using lithommix of similar colour allowed to dry and then hand carved.
