Modern masonry paint on traditional solid wall buildings, built with breathable materials can cause issues with damp. This masonry paint ideally, needs to be removed from some types of buildings.
Years ago when modern masonry paint was removed from buildings, often sand blasting was carried out which then subsequently damaged the fired edge of the brick which, could cause further issues. Messy dangerous chemical peels have also been used in the past. Now we use the ThermaTech Super heated hot water system which is a patented system to remove paint from the building fabric. This is done by heating the water in the boiler, and this along with a specialist lance is used topple this paint away from the masonry.
If you need advice, and test paintremoval panels carried out for your project give us a shout.
