DJ Cooper Building Conservation for Kington, Herefordshire

Nestling in the north west corner of Herefordshire, Kington borders on Powys in Wales and is a great centre for walkers, being on the conjunction of five major walking routes, including Offa's Dyke, The Arrow Valley Trail and the Wyche Way.

Within the town, the narrow streets and higgledy-piggledy areas show how the area has grown and evolved for centuries. Many of the buildings date back to the 16th century and beyond. All are still in daily use and the town is a living, thriving display of how history breathes through the buildings and streets of such a town.

As a piece of sporting trivia, Kington Golf Club is Englandís highest 18-hole course, playable 12 months of the year.

Standing high and overlooking the town is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin. Parts of the building are Norman, notably the originally detached tower and the font. The fine stained glass windows as well as the superb alabaster tomb of Sir Thomas Vaughan and his wife have all been superbly maintained over the many years of this remarkable building.

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 Kington 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 Kington or Herefordshire, 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.
