Painting & Decorating
Redecorating the outside and inside of this lovely victorian townhouse in Gosport. On the exterior, painting the walls, facias, and window sills. the interior: painting hall stairs and landing giving it a brighter and fresher look.
PREP – SCAFFOLD
In this example, I've taken down existing deteriorated front wall and replaced it with new brickwork with a blue engineering top soldier course which will prevent frost damage to the top of the wall.
Brickwork in need of repointing on this Gosport property. Took out all the old mortar and re-pointed the brickwork with rubbed-in pointing (rounded groove formed in the middle of the pointing).
The bay window on this Gosport property (shown below) was in a badly deteriorated state and the homeowner thought it was beyond repair. I removed all loose and damaged materials and supported the bay structure during rebuild. Installed new lintel above front window. Rebuilt brickwork above and reshaped details to plaster work. Finally prepared and protected bay with a quality masonry paint.
The side boundary had fencing that had deteriorated. I removed all existing fencing and fixed new supports to existing posts. Attached new fencing to posts and cleared the site of all old fencing.
I took down and disposed of all the old fencing and brickwork wall and erected a new feather edged fence with concrete morticed posts and gravel boards.
Here is an example of my approach for another client in Gosport who was renovating a conservatory. The existing floor was uneven so I levelled the floor with levelling compound then laid ceramic wood effect tiles onto new surface. The area is relatively small but it's the same need for a professional finish whatever the size of the job. I replaced the existing ceiling with brilliant white gloss ceiling boards. It makes the room look bigger and brighter.
Living Room Renovation
The original work was to clear cavities and redecorate the living room; however, a section of the the floor was found to contain rot. I replaced floor joists, provided underfloor ventilation and replaced existing floorboards where possible and fitted new floorboards. I re-plastered the walls.
