Regency town house in Hammersmith renovated by Lethridge London
Lethbridge London Ltd carried out a full exterior renovation on this magnificent
regency town house in Hammersmith.
The facade had fallen into disrepair after years of poor workmanship, which also left the render & stonework at the top of the house, in a dangerous state of decay. It took several weeks to remove the 'interior' filler & 'bonding', wrongly used for so many years.
The rotten cellar pine doors were completely replaced, using treated timber. The rotten window cills were replaced using sapele. The decaying render at the top of the house was taken back to the original brickwork and coated twice with a specialist render, and a colored render to match the rest of the unpainted facade.
The cracks in the cornice were also raked out and the cornice coated with a specialist render. The parapet wall & cornice were then dressed with code 5 sheet milled lead, for both practical & aesthetic purposes. Oil based Little Greene & Dulux weather shield painting systems were used to fully protect and prolong the life of the timber. Dulux weather shield masonry paint was used for the stonework. This was a thoroughly enjoyable project, which has given the exterior a new lease of life.
