Spruth-Magers Art Gallery

It was our pleasure to carry out the necessary single glazing – glass replacement, painting re-decorating, crittall window painting, roof repair, brickwork repairs and pointing repairs of he chimney stack and parapet wall and other additional external building maintenance works at Spruth – Magers art gallery, Mayfair. Probably it wasn’t the most challenging and exciting abseiling window painting project in our practice, but carrying out all works according to our standards in the achievable highest quality, racing with the time, tested our skills and pushed our team to the limits. A huge rusty metal crittall style window (Francis Henry Crittal), its rotting timber window frame and window sill, and other timber details required our special skills to bring these building parts back to the worth of this precious building. As it is a really busy and constantly visited exhibition building and art gallery, this rotting window frame and window sill, cracked and missing glazing putty and some broken glass panes spoiled the view of this elevation, which had to be repaired quickly, in a very tight timeframe. This narrow window in the time made this abseiling window painting project challenging, but our rope access /abseiling/ painting services proved again that Repair Abseiling Limited provides the best, most professional and highest quality abseiling service in London. Next to this window restoration and window painting project which retrieved the quality of this beautiful building part, some less spectacular issues also required our indispensable expertise. Repairing the leaking roof, replacing some broken slates, repair the pointing, brickwork and flaunching of the main chimney stack and repairing of the leaking damaged cast iron soil-pipe on the rear elevation were also on our to-do list on this project. Our team completed all of these works safely in time in budget, which made the opening ceremony sterssless for our customer eventually.
