Core ServicesA Selection of Services we Offer

Although WallWalkers has built a solid reputation in the conservation industry, our involvement in a wide range of project types over the years has helped the team to develop a many specialist skills, therefor evolving the company beyond historical building maintenance as it's sole means of utility. These services include the following:

Photographic Condition Surveys

In depth condition surveys and reports

Focusing on steeples, castles, monuments and listed buildings, our surveys have proven to be invaluable when assessing immediate courses of action to be taken to aid the maintenance of the building's structural integrity while gaining a complete understanding as to it's architectural construction. Example report.

Weathervanes

Weathervane condition evaluation and replacement

Entering the church through the spire where the narrow stone already battles strong wind and heavy rain conditions, the traditional iron weathervane often suffers from detrimental rust expansion and degradation which breaks the stone apart while forcing it outwards, causing a serious risk of structural failure. We can repair and remove weathervanes, or replace them by fabricating stainless steel ones made to measure. Example report.

Stone and Brick

Sample testing, repair and replacement

Structural stabilisation including pinning, glueing and replacement of stone and brick to spires and structures. Predominately this entails the removal and making good of loose and damaged stone and brick, and the removal and making good of vegetation, especially important when encountering the damaging roots of woody growth.

Joints

Maintenance and repair, raking out, repoint and replacement

Over the years our team has worked on a wide variety of joints using materials ranging from lime mortar mixes to gum hardeners and silicon sealants. Whether natural stone castles, treated sandstone blocks or modern brick work, we always ensure materials and methods used are conducive to the nature of the building's history and character.

Lead

Maintenance and repair of lead facades, roofs and gutters

Having attended lead welding courses, not only are we able to carry out lead work and repairs, but to also identify any developing issues the building may encounter. The team recently identified and repaired a critical flaw in a particular section of lead work causing great damage to it's building; a problem which had left four specialist lead roofing companies stumped, testament to the team's quality of work and lateral thinking.

Guttering

Removal, repair and replacement

The unique architectural make up of historical buildings are coupled with their own unique drainage systems. We are able to access these often challenging locations using our dynamic rope systems which allow us to repair damaged surfaces and fixings, clear debris build up and remove/replace all or part of the drainage system where necessary. We have experience in lead, iron and plastic systems, with flash banding, fibreglass and many other techniques.

Roofing

Maintenance and repair of various roof types

The ongoing development of our numerous rigging systems have helped us access to a wide variety of roof types, so that work can be carried out efficiently. From 6-ladder links to arching rope systems and catapult fishline rigging, our team has the experience, tools and lateral thinking to get to work quickly. We offer maintenance and repair of various roof types including tile, slate, stone and shingle. Some photos viewable in the gallery.

Louvres

Removal, repair and maintenance including bird proofing

Over the years we've repaired wood, slate and stone louvres on location, removed louvres entirely, and even produced and installed our own louvres to replace those in too poorer condition to save. We also provide a bird proofing service suited to the clients needs, from internal/external netting and wiring to the installation of anti-roosting spikes.

Internal Maintenance

A wide range of internal maintenance services

Light bulb replacement, electrical fittings, netting, painting, decorations and countless other jobs have been carried out by our team in the past. Where water ingress may have damaged the interior of a building, we are able to repair and replace the damaged areas, often proving far more cost effective than scaffolding or any other form of access, due to both the team's extensive experience and the nature of our efficient rope systems.

We offer services of repair and replacement of individual panes and the removal/replacement of complete windows for more extensive, specialist renovation. The photo to the left shows one of eight wooden cradles we constructed to house the fragile leaded windows of St Stevens, Walbrook, London, which we then carefully lowered through it's dome ceiling directly above an original Henry Moore sculpture. Some photos viewable in the gallery.
