Hurlingham Court Riverside
Ranelagh Gardens, London SW6
This prestigious residential mansion block overlooking the Thames is one of numerous general external refurbishment projects that has benefited from Triton’s specialist restoration and masonry skills.
Once all brickwork and terracotta dressings had been sensitively cleaned, severe damage to the balconies and porticos was evident to both the front and rear of the building.
Investigatory works established that this was due to the rusting of the hidden structural steel frames. After all the defective elements were treated or replaced with stainless steel, terracotta blocks were replaced with matching units as necessary, including moulded sections to the high level riverside gables. Where blocks were salvaged or required minor repairs, these were restored in situ with specially prepared TBR terracotta restoration mortar. This included substantial work to the entrance porticos.
The brickwork had also deteriorated and bricks were replaced with carefully matching units in isolated areas throughout the façade.
To the steeply pitching roof, dormers and the octagonal section turret, all defective slates were replaced as necessary.
All joinery and rainwater goods were fully overhauled and all previously painted surfaces were redecorated with Dulux Weathershield products.
