Overview

Waterproofing came in the form of a twenty-year guaranteed high-performance cold-applied Kemper waterproofing system. Added to that was an anti-slip wearing layer in contrasting colour, restorative work to the main coping stones, parapet repairs and the replacement of cavity trays.

Repair to lead and flashings and the waterproofing of window sills were the final tasks undertaken, providing long-term protection to this remarkable period structure.
