The Old Dairy House Refurbishment

Refurbishment

Newman Building Solutions were contacted by the owners of this 16th century farm house as they needed advice and costing for the refurbishment of the external fabric of the building as well as improving the security and kerb appeal.

The external rubble filled walls were found to be suffering from delamination so Twistfix delamination grout ties were installed at 450mm x 450mm centres in addition to delamination ties the corners of the property were reinforced and stabilised using 2m long cementitious sock anchors installed at 600mm staggered centres cross pinning the walls.

Deep bed repointing to various areas was also required using a specialist lime mortar.

The main entrance of the property was made secure by constructing two 6ft high solid stone walls with 10ft x 6ft hardwood electric gates and new close board fencing.
