Masonry Cleaning and wood and steel beam prep for paint. Too often is cleaning over looked as an easy or quick way to brighten up a facade. In the wrong hands it’s easy to over clean and remove too much patina or worse the colour out of the brick or stone. Hot steam is used to peal away t 4 layers of paint with no chemicals.
We are rebuilding a parapet as well.

Our clay tiles are coming out nicely. The colour .arches the cleaned version of the original. We are even able to almost have the holes pre-drilled. Thanks to winterstone for producing an exterior casing mix that can withstand the outdoor elements. Winterstone was developed by a Canadian engineer who is also a sculpter. He need an excellent casting mix and was frustrated… he made is own. It is that good. More casting to come.

Clay Roof Tiles (cont). The mold was flipped and separated from the form. 1 tile was lost due a soft mix or not enough activator. The edges were trimmed and then ready for the mix. A 7-10+- ratio of mineral dye to mix. The consistency is just enough water where there is a balance between min workability and dryness to prevent shrinkage during set.
See www.winterstone.com for more info. Great product. (To be cont.) (at High Park North)
