Revitalising the sandstone window surrounds, downstairs wooden window frames, and eves on this period property

The sandstone had weathered badly over the years with a build up of moss and required either renovating to retain the sandstone finish, or having it treated and applying a painted finish. The renovation of the sandstone to retain a sandstone appearance would have been labour intensive and expensive. The owner opted for the second solution of making good, sealing the sandstone and then applying a durable cream paint finish to it. As well as the sandstone the wooden eves and wooden window frames were also made good and painted.

  • The cleaning, repair and painting of the sandstone was a complex process using specialist sandstone filler. The first operation was to jet wash the moss and debre that had built up over the years.
  • Once cleaned the next step was to repair any imperfections in the sandstone. This was done with a specialist filler called “Toupret, Touprelith F”
