Repairing and painting Edwardian masonry detailing

We were delighted to watch John produce these wonderful results for us a few days ago during the exterior painting work we carried out on a large house in south London. Remarkably, he carried out all of this work freehand, completely without the use of formwork.

In the course of a day, he transformed a series of badly damaged masonry details, including a capital, a string course and coving — he even rebuilt a new decorative floral detail, which is visible at the bottom of the photos.
