As can be seen all around The Maltings, the render has blown in many areas and needs to be removed and replaced. Poor previous repairs have resulted in a mixture of concrete in some areas and lime in other areas; all the render should be traditional lime render.
Currently we are removing the render areas by area, this gives us a chance to inspect and repair the timber frame (see separate section). We have discovered that in some areas the frame is in a pretty bad state requiring extensive specialist repair.
The pictures below show the extent of the issues and show a picture diary of the repairs.
