DJ Cooper Building Conservation for Langport, Somerset

The historic town of Langport, on the banks of the River Parrett, claims to be the smallest town in England. Langport and all the villages around are part of the Somerset Levels, where in 2014, flooding had a catastrophic effect on farming in the area, with the worst flooding since 1929. Most of the blame was laid at the door of the Environment Agency for failing to dredge the River Parrett and the Parrett Relief Channel, both of which were said to be silted up to below 60% of their capacity to clear the flood waters from the Levels. As always, famers carry on farming against all the odds, and local herds are still maintaining their numbers. As with all areas that are prone to wet underfoot conditions, great vigilance needs to be employed to spot and treat cattle lameness quickly to keep yields up. For this reason, farmers in the Langport area call on us more frequently than average for:

With historic buildings in and around the town, some national monuments, some still in use, owned privately or by the local council, we often find ourselves called on in the Langport area to ensure that when the grime from traffic, bird fouling, general day to day soiling or even graffiti is removed from a treasured building, there is no damage to the often delicate stonework beneath.

From removal of old paint for a domestic redecoration project, or the intricate cleaning of stone work in a cathedral using the poultice method, you will find that wherever you are in Langport or Somerset, you will get a quick response, highly competitive quotation and thorough cleaning from DJ Cooper. Our number is shown above, or if you prefer to send us an email, simply click in the header of any page.

TORC System

For the gentle removal of Carbon Sulphation, Brittle Paints, Limescale and more

The TORC System is a complete stone cleaning system designed and sold exclusively by Stonehealth. It is an evolution of the Jos system that we first introduced to the market over 20 years ago.

How does it work?

The TORC system creates a gentle swirling vortex using a mixture of low air pressure, little water and a safe inert fine granulate.

The Torc Head is modularised into separate components which results in an efficient and gentle swirling vortex using even less water and granulate than the original Jos system.

The removable nozzle cone can easily be changed so that a larger cone can be used to clean large areas such as ashlar or a smaller nozzle cone can be used for more intricate detail such as an elaborate capital or rustications.

Different abrasive media are used in the TORC system; calcite, dolomite and unil, which is a by product of coal, allow fine-tuning of the cleaning method through varying hardness, grain shape and abrasion. By choosing the most appropriate abrasive medium to suit the substrate material, skilled use of the TORC system ensures the cleanest possible finish with the minimum possible damage to your property.

All Stonehealth approved aggregate contains less than 1% quartz with no other form of crystalline silica. It is completely safe for the environment & non-toxic.
