The mission was to „make the red steeple RED again“; so, the 36-metre steeple of St. Christophorus Church in Ratingen-Breitscheid was restored. The steeple of the nearly 30-year old building had been severely affected by environmental impacts. The topcoat was extremely thin and faded. By means of HP-water jetting of about 500-1000 bars, the entire rood area was cleaned. Subsequently, an epoxy-based undercoat and a polyurethane topcoat were applied.
