Here we have some Old Victorian houses sometime have old lime-wash paint to the front lower elevations which can look unsightly. We were initially instructed to carry out paint removal on the brickwork of the house on the left. However the next door neighbour was so impressed with the results that he asked us to remove the paint from the brickwork on his property as well.
