This house in Pembury in Kent had suffered from neglect from previous owners but is now in the process of being sympathetically restored by the current owners to bring it back to its former glory, and preserve it as a family home for future generations. In the past, the addition of a ‘modern’ porch had caused significant damage to original brickwork around the front door. Over time two of the gauged window arches had dropped and needed repair. Several years earlier, on the ground floor, a window with wooden sills had been installed. The window was not in keeping with the rest of the house and was set into poorly matched brickwork. Overgrown foliage was growing freely all over the front of the house and hiding not only the detail of the original brickwork but also much of the damage.
The repairs to this house included the renewal of the two gauged arches, careful repairs to the damaged front door reveals, and hiding unsightly wiring, and replacing a wooden window sill with stone. A brick cleaning specialist provided additional expertise to restore the appearance of the brickwork. http://www.brickimage.co.uk/ The Brick Image team cleaned all the brickwork to remove staining and poorly matched areas of brickwork were dyed to regularise the appearance of the brickwork and improve the overall look of the building.
