• Fintan Farrell Conservation & Restoration - Lime Pointing and Rendering

    Lime Pointing and Rendering

    Working with lime is a skill that’s been in use for over 2,000 years. Lime mortar and render is used for brick and stone buildings.

    Not only is it aesthetically pleasing but it is also functional. We work with lime as it’s a softer, more porous material than cement. This allows moisture to evaporate from the facade more freely, reducing issues with frost break and dampness on internal walls.


    Lime pointing & rendering is a great way to improve functionality and aesthetics of your building.

  • Fintan Farrell Conservation & Restoration - Vortex Cleaning

    Vortex Cleaning

    Bricks and natural stones are permeable breathing materials. Environmental toxins and vegetation growth clog their pores, leading to decreased functionality and a sad looking façade or monument.

    Rotec cleaning is a form of micro-abrasive cleaning, an innovation by Remmers (link to Remmers Site) which sees the most gentle and effective method of cleaning on the market. So much so, Dublin City Council have approved micro abrasive cleaning as the only method to be used on the city’s monuments. Rotec Vortex cleaning can remove graffiti and paint in addition to pollutants and vegetation staining.

    Conservation technology has advanced rapidly over the last fifteen years, using the rotec vortex method of cleaning has been proven to increase the longevity of the brick or stone by 70 – 90% with cleaning required every 40 – 60 years once general maintenance is carried out regularly.


      Vortex cleaning will improve the longevity of your building
