Project Description

This former church, which has been converted into residential apartments, was plagued by water ingress and mould through the windows and roof. The job was a difficult one in that the origin of the incoming water proved very difficult to locate for each case, due to the complex structure of the building. However, all box gutters were provided with new lead linings. Other rainwater drainage items and roof tiles were replaced and windows repaired.

Damp in the flats was caused by a combination of rising and lateral damp through the porous sandstone exterior of the former church. This required specialist internal damp proofing. The project was extended to nearly double its anticipated duration due to the client adding more and more instructions for repair. In the end, the job was completed within budget and to the satisfaction of client and occupiers.
