Customer description

Hi My 3 bed semi-detached house dating from approx. 1910. in Walsall needs repointing and I've struggled to find somebody who would do it sympathetically. The pointing to the rear elevation is worse than anywhere else as far as I can see so it's possible that not everything needs doing. Also I'm not entirely sure if the original pointing is lime but considering the age I suspect it might well be, it certainly seems very soft and crumbling to the rear elevation. I can send you photos or you're welcome to have a look. I appreciate that it's not the season for pointing but would like to get it booked in for the Spring. Thanks very much, Saara

Feedback for Mark Costello restoration

Mark repointed the gable and rear walls of my house with lime mortar. It was difficult to find somebody with experience in dealing with older houses as I wanted to avoid using cement and Mark was recommended by a colleague. I'm very pleased with the end result, the house not only looks lovely but the walls now function as they were originally designed to with breathable lime mortar. Mark is also very easy to deal with and kept me and my neighbours up-to-date with job.
