  • Repointing of multiple external walls

    Mark and his team were excellent. They provided a competitive price, attended on the day they said they would and most importantly completed the work to a really high standard.

    We had an excellent experience with Mark and his colleague George. They communicated very clearly before the job and provided a very competitive quote. George was excellent throughout the job - polite and hard working.

    The final result was better than we expected, thanks in part to some really good suggestions from Mark and George about materials and finishes that made the final result look good.

    The quality of the brickwork is excellent and, in my opinion, looks better than our neighbours who had a similar job done by another firm a couple of years ago.

    We really happy and will definitely use Payne and Lyttle again in the future.

  • New front wall

    My experience with Payne and Lyttle from beginning to end has been extremely positive. Their response to my post was swift and they came out to assess and quote for the job more quicker then expected. I met with 3 other contractors via the website BUT Albert from Payne and Lyttle was the only one who listened actively to my requirements and came up with a wholly different and inventive way to do exactly what I required which not only repaired the wall but as an unexpected bonus reused some materials. The work was completed today and the wall looks absolutely great and is exactly what I wanted.The overall service was very good and the workmanship of Albert and his fellow worker was excellent.They also left the site very clean and tidy. I have no reservations in recommending the company and those who work for it .

    We would happily appoint Albert for future brick work should the need arise.

  • Remove and rebuild front steps to property

    Good communication both before and throughout the job. They were able to repair the steps and walls rather than having to remove and replace them which was my original plan and meant a saving financially. They also replaced the disintegrating landing at the top of the steps ready for retiling. They turned up promptly, were friendly and professional throughout, with a great comradery between the team when they worked together. They job was finished quickly and when I had some queries after they had finished they were dealt with promptly by e-mail and then in person. A little more than I'd expected to pay but they were very clear about the pricing from the start. I would definitely use them again.

    Payne & Lyttle did a superb job. I had 2 people come over to quote for the work - repointing the front/side of the house, and in my mind Albert seemed the most knowledgeable and his quote was the most reasonable too.

    Thanks very much!

  • Repointing Terrace House

    Albert and Mark were great to work with through the whole process, really good communication from initial quote through to finishing the job. We're really happy with the repointing carried out to the front of the house which was done in a lime mortar and then finished flush. We also had quite a lot of damaged brickwork, which has been replaced and is a great match for the existing bricks used on the Victorian terrace. The guys obviously take pride in their work and the overall finish looks much more polished but also sympathetic to the building. They also completely recast old window sills in concrete for us, and then redecoration work was carried out by Alan to repair other damaged sills and window surrounds and to give everything a fresh coat of white paint. Highly recommended.

  • Replacement of Brickwall

    Mark helped take down a poorly built wall that was tipping over dangerously. Mark was very honest and clear from the outset with his plans and his availability so I was scheduled in for three weeks' time from hiring him.
    With a week turnaround and pictured evidence upon completion, I am very happy with the state of the wall and it was exactly what we requested.
    Slightly more expensive than I would have hoped the job to be but the price is justified with the quality and turnaround.

    Would highly recommend Payne & Lyttle - very personable and professional.

    My brickwork job has needed doing for years and because it's such a big and expensive commitment I was wary about who I would trust to do it.
    Albert and Mark are very professional and no nonsense and I knew straight away I could trust them, which made me feel very comfortable to have them in my home.
    The quote was very reasonable and it was never too much trouble for them to come back and discuss the work before it commenced.
    The quality of work was fantastic. They considered the age and style of the property when deciding on the mortar and what I thought was just a boring and necessary job turned out to transform my brickwork.

    Thanks guys.

  • Repointing Required

    Payne & Lyttle undertook some pretty major masonry work on our 'turn of the 20th century' semi-detached home. This included repointing the entire side elevation, rebuilding a crooked and leaning chimney, spot pointing elsewhere around the house, and correcting some shoddy guttering from a previous loft conversion. They were proactive and easily contacted throughout the entire engagement, from initial agreement up until the last day. All works were completed within the initially agreed budget and timeframes - zero hassles, which was important to us. They were always on site first thing in the morning, did a full day's work through to the evening, and were very tidy considering the messy nature of the job. They even cleaned up the mess that drifted over to our neighbour's garden! The entire team were curteous, respectful, punctual, professional, and highly skilled. We're very pleased with the quality of the work completed and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for similar jobs.

  • Re-pointing part of the rear external elevation

    An exceptional service from start to finish.

    P&L Construction were the only firm to insist on viewing the job before quoting, rather than simply plucking a random (high) number from the air.

    The site visit was arranged within ten minutes of clicking, with a very courteous phone call. They even persevered with a sticking gate to ensure the quote was delivered as promised.

    On the day of the job, Mark and Albert arrived promptly, explained what they would be doing, and worked solidly to completion. They wouldn't even pause for tea and Hob Nobs. A rude and abusive neighbour added an unwelcome element to the morning, but the situation was handled extremely professionally.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending P&L Construction, and have already passed on their details to friends and family.
