TEST BLASTING BRICKWORK TO REMOVE PAINT
Removing paint from brickwork is a gentle process, that requires time, skill and patience. These pictures clearly show you, how it should be done! All too often you encounter properties that have undergone poor or aggressive blasting, by those that are driven by speed only. They are easily recognisable by the vast surface damage on the bricks and the mortar joints.
In my opinion, brickwork houses (especially Victorian ones or older) should never be painted, unless its with a breathable lime wash.
In order to achieve results like this, you need to use very low pressures & fine grade blast medias. These test blasts, are conducted with wet blasting and very low pressures, along with total control over the pressure hold blast pot.
Painting brick buildings in modern paints, leads to all sorts of issues, including damp, brick damage & especially mortar joint problems.
We take great pride in “ALL” our work, by standing above the competition. By driving for quality and not quantity !
