Challenge = Repair work was carried out whilst protecting the dining room wallpaper which had been hand painted by De Gournay
Solution = Pickfords recently carried out repair work to a Manor near Royston, after water leaking from the bathroom upstairs had damaged the dining room ceiling below. The damaged plaster and lathe ceiling was removed and a Gyproc sound bloc plasterboard on a sure fix gypframe was installed, then skimmed and painted and spotlights replaced. All works were carried out whilst protecting the dining room wallpaper which had been hand painted by De Gournay 12 years ago at the cost of approximately £26,000. The estimated cost of replacing the wallpaper today is between £50,000 and £60,000. We used a Protek ultimate seal foam and clean screen method, to protect the wall paper without touching it and where necessary an Artist made small repairs to the wallpaper.
