Spectrum was called in to carry out repairs to a prestigious residential block along the river where there had been issues with water ingress into one of the penthouse flats. The ingress had caused cracks into the render as well as damage to the inside of the flat. Spectrum assembled the safest and most efficient access strategy possible to carry out the works, bringing in aluminium towers as well as a rope access team to assist in the safe lifting of the coping stones.

Spectrum began the repairs by lifting the coping stones, preparing the surface below and laying DPM to the wall. After cleaning and levelling the area Spectrum laid the coping stones back and resealed the joints, taking care to direct attention to the finish, as maintaining/improving the aesthetics of the prestigious building was paramount. After raking out cracks, Spectrum also installed two new movement joints to the render of the façade to prevent further cracking and damage to the render of the wall from occurring in the future. After careful colour matching for the render, Spectrum resealed the cracks, applied new render paint and resealed the façade.

We were able to complete the project swiftly and safely, fully restoring the exterior of the property to its former glory.
