It is well documented that modern paints can trap moisture within a wall, and cause subsequent damp issues. We carry out test panels before works commence to give better guidance on prices for the paint removal along with lime pointing repairs as necessary. This short sped up video shows you how our Thermatech Superheated hot water system helps us remove paint at temperatures up to 150°C. This is a recognised sympathetic system that is specified, rather than sand blasting that will cause more damage to any bricks or stone work.

As we offer a full lime repointing service covering Wiltshire, Somerset, and the South West, we also are asked to carry out  structural repairs to include crack stitching, masonry beaming and lateral restraint.

If you need a survey ring the office on 01225 769215 or email the office


The ThermaTech modular system is our preferred system for paint removal as in the picture below. If you need paint removal in Wiltshire, Somerset or anywhere across the South West give us a shout.

  1. A damp proofing company in Trowbridge has told us the paint needs to be repainted again even though the wall has suffered from penetrating damp for years. There is damp from floor to ceiling internal on the ground and first floor. On reading your blog posts it would seem you do really know your stuff, and I would appreciate a survey and quote. What’s the best contact number?


    1. Hi Jeff please ring the office on 01225 769215 next week. We can offer a survey along with a specification for paint removal, and drying of the building with desiccant dehumidifiers.
