Salt-damp repairs

The front of this beautiful historical home in Nairne in the Adelaide Hills was being eaten away by salt damp. The damp was so advanced, there was a risk of it collapsing, posing serious safety issues for the owner. Rather than an ineffective quick fix using harmful chemicals for salt-damp repairs, Rob Green Builders used traditional methods to turn back the ravages of time. Damaged stones were removed, cleaned and reshaped like new. The wall was expertly rebuilt and re-pointed by Rob Green Builders. This was no cheap and nasty quick fix and as you can see, this stone cottage has been lovingly restored to its former glory – without cutting any corners. Most importantly though, it is safe and will stand another 100 years. The home’s proud owner was well pleased! A video of Rob in action is available here.
