Private House, Weymouth

Lime pointing to boundary wall

Localised areas of decayed lime pointing were raked out and re-pointed in hydraulic lime mortar. The colour of the mortar was made to compliment the colour of the stonework.

The wall capping and other areas of the wall had severe vegetation growth allowing rain to penetrate into the core of the wall. This had led to parts of the wall core to be washed away causing the wall to become unstable in areas. Consolidation of these areas was built up with hydraulic lime mortar.
