Telegraph House in Sheffield

Sheffield city landmark Victorian building, Telegraph House, now protected by Johnstone’s Paints

Telegraph House was originally constructed in 1890 _ the same year that Johnstone’s Trade was formed.

  • Grade II Listed
  • originally home to the Sheffield Telegraph newspaper
  • now houses retail units on street level with commercial offices and apartments

Protecting the exterior

Sheffield-based decorating company Dolphin applied nearly 600 litres of Johnstone’s products during the three-month project to protect the building’s exterior for at least the next 10 years.

Two contrasting shades of grey were used to pick out the intricate mouldings on the building’s facade to fully showcase the striking 19th century architecture.

Johnstone’s Stormshield Smooth Masonry, which boasts a BBA approved 15-year life expectancy, will provide excellent protection from the weather as well as potential damage from vehicle exhaust fumes.

For the woodwork, Johnstone’s Professional Undercoat and Gloss proved the perfect combination by providing a tough coating system with lasting protection.

Mark Rooker of Dolphin: ñTelegraph House is an instantly recognisable Sheffield landmark and we felt confident that Johnstone’s Stormshield range would provide the protection needed, without compromising on its heritage. We’re delighted to have played our part revitalising this stunning building.î

The project was awarded a place on the shortlist for the prestigious title of Johnstone’s Painter of the Year 2013.
