Refurbishment Case Study 25

This case study describes work carried out to an exposed gable of a listed building in Shetland, which had been subject to on-going wind-driven water ingress. In recent years, Historic Environment Scotland (HES) has seen an increase in the reporting of issues caused by water penetration through gable walls, particularly in the west and north of Scotland and in exposed areas.
