Hi, I wonder if you can help. I own a part timber frame part brick house. The timber framed part is c.400 years old and the brick extensions are c. 200 years old. The house has been treated badly in the past and along with a lot of cement pointing has also had at least a couple of coats of masonry paint over what I think is a limewash. I want to remove the paint before repainting with breathable paint. Can you suggest a method which will not damage the bricks and timber? Also, which breathable paint would you recommend?
Many thanks in advance
