Stone Work & Repointing Restoration

We use a specialist mechanical repointing technique where we rack out the joint to the required depth before mechanically injecting the new motor.
The doff system is a cleaning technique where superheated water (up to a temperature of 150°C) is used to clean stone and brickwork. This is an extremely effective way of cleaning different types of stone like Bath stone and Portland stone.
The TORC system is like grit blasting with water, but the material used is very fine like powder and when mixed with water it can clean effectively on delicate surfaces.
The DOFF and Torc system is approved by heritage councils such as CAWD and English Heritage. The Torc system is effective in removing paint from brick and other surfaces where grit blasting is not suitable.
