This is a columbian pine ceiling beam that was heavily painted with many coats of black paint. We removed these existing layers of paint using a special poultice. This method is also ideal for stone work pillars.
It is far safer method than chemical stripping and does not damage /ruin the wood as sandblasting. We have used this method in very famous London buildings and the results can be truly outstanding.
The other advantage of our poultice method is that the waste is safe to put into landfill skips, While traditional chemical stripper is not allowed. Look at the layers easily remove to expose the wonderful pitch pine under layers of black paint.
The stripped Columbian pine beams now being treated and finished to match our clients decor and requirements.
Well done Dave, that looks superb !!!!
This Existing fireplace was carefully removed to have new floorboards fitted to the wall
Ensuring our antique pine fitted, we cut the original columbian pine flooring back to give a staggered look.
Fitting supporting joists to the sub-floor. Our newly fitted reclaimed pine boards match a treat, in a way that new pine boards can’t match
This heavily moulded oak paneling is destined for a university in Cambridge. After lightly sanding, we made sample panels to check and ensure our work matched the existing 18C. The stain being applied is a traditional stain made from charcoaled walnut husks. This gives a unique warm nutty colour,ageing the oak beautifully.
This fine Church in Essex had its columns coated in multi layers of paint, hiding its fine features. We were commissioned to remove the existing finish without harming the stonework. Using bio-degradeable poultices the paint was removed from the columns to reveal the natural finish.
