DJ Cooper Building Conservation for Swindon, Wiltshire

Although many people see Swindon as a huge, sprawlig metropolis, it is surrounded by delightful countryside and villages such as Hinton Parva, blessed with several picturesque thatched cottages and a Saxon church. On the edge of the village is the National Trust's 'The Coombes', where medieval strip lynchets are preserved in a steep-sided valley. These are evidence of the open fields farming practice of the day and were commonplace among the chalky hills of Wessex. The name comes from the Old English word "hilinc", meaning ridge or mound. The most commonly accepted reason for their use was that in the 13th and 14th century, communities were becoming over populated and land hungry, there wasn't enough easily farmed, low lying arable land to go round, so the hills were scarred with ridges to provide viable farming area where there previously was none. Other explanations are available, but we prefer that one. What we also prefer is to have zero lameness in cattle in the Swindon (or any other) area, so very often find ourselves visiting farms there to provide:<br /><br />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 Swindon 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.<br /><br />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 Swindon or Wiltshire, you will get a quick response, highly competitive quotation and thorough cleaning from DJ Cooper.

TORC System

<p>For the gentle removal of Carbon Sulphation, Brittle Paints, Limescale and more<br /><br />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.<br /><br />How does it work?<br /><br />The TORC system creates a gentle swirling vortex using a mixture of low air pressure, little water and a safe inert fine granulate.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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.</p><h4></h4><p></p><p></p>
