Project Overview :

Haseley Manor is a wonderful 19th Century Grade II listed manor house with façades of rock faced rubblework stone. We were initially asked by the client to undertake cleaning test trials in order to create clarity around the appropriate methods and approach to help to restore and breathe new life in to the building façades, while ensuring that they were still in keeping with the local environment – as required by the conservation officer and standards set out for cleaning listed buildings.

Having undertaken the cleaning trials, varying the sensitive methods that would help to restore the stone, we proposed a phased process of steam cleaning, gently removing the build up of organic and atmospheric soiling, while avoiding any damage to the substrate. Once the conservation officer visited the site, they were extremely happy with the results achieved, giving the go ahead to continue with the methods that we had suggested.
