    Hi I'm new to the forum, really hoping some one can help. We're renovating a cottage and we decided to try expose the chimney breast upstairs as it is exposed downstairs and looks pretty good. I've attached a before and after picture as well as the brickwork downstairs . As you can see it doesn't look great, wondering if there's anyway to remove the remaining mortor/ cement that's covering the stone work and get it looking like downstairs. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! 20190209_112304.jpg IMG-20181231-WA0006.jpg

    On upper floors of old buildings, the quality of the bricks and brickwork might not be of the same standard of that on the ground floor. So even if you exposed it, you might not like what you see.
