About Victorian Restoration

Most of my work nowadays is façade.
This would include jet washing, stone repairs, cut out and re point, lime or sand/cement, Reface bricks, tone and age, paint removal.
Renew guttering, flashings , rendering , repairs to stack.
I get lots of inquiries for lime mortar pointing and brick repairs, as people are more knowledgeable about the poor performance of weather struck pointing on solid brick buildings . I've been doing this type of work for over twenty years now.
When I left school , I took a bricklaying apprentice job for Gleesons Ltd. That took five years to complete. straight after I became a Brickwork subcontractor for different companies , winning two awards in the process . I also worked for London stone Ltd, Negus stone Ltd . Working on the parliament buildings for some time and enjoying the subsidized food and drink that was on offer.
I get inquiry's for cracked brickwork which you get a lot of, on the older building and brick joints made to look smaller .
I generally on site by 8 am and stay and work through to a finish.
I'm sure Your be very happy with my work.
