Ballinlough Castle

Another well known land mark building in Ireland. This was an extensive restoration project as the castle was in serious disrepair from roof to basement.

All roof works had to be carried out with great care and precision to restore this castle to its finest. Lead works and timberworks underneath had to be carefully taken out and replaced with new. All slates had to be re-nailed after remedial works had taken place.

A huge project of underpinning the south east wing had to be undertaken as the foundations had eroded away to seriously dangerous levels. All internal joinery and external joinery i.e. windows had been carefully taken out and restored.

The lime render on the outside had to be looked at as dampness was evident everywhere in the building. The most effected walls were concentrated on, the walls were cleaned down and new lime plaster work using all traditional methods were used to replace existing. As you can see from the photos excellent finishes were achieved
