or give us a call on 0800 500 3146

from penetrating damp and will stay maintenance free for years to come.
Pointing is the visible edge of the mortar joint between the bricks
or stone, which provides an attractive finish and protection against
the elements. Defective pointing can lead to further problems such
as penetrating damp and loose masonry if left unrepaired.
We can repair problems such as loose or cracked pebbledash and
even replace pebbledash entirely with one of our wall coating
systems, in a wide range of colours and finishes
(see our masonry coatings gallery for examples). This
will dramatically transform a dull old dash to a beautiful new
Damp can be caused by many different problems, such as
deteriorated render, inappropriate use of ‘cement render’
on old buildings, defective pointing or failed damp proof
course. Damp is easily diagnosed when you know what to
look out for, but solutions vary widely depending
on the cause.
Repairs for Blown Brick or Blown Stone
The major causes of blown brick or blown stone is the incorrect
use of cement materials when re-pointing such buildings. We
offer a brick matching and stone matching service to restore your property’s
original appearance. Alternative methods such as
brick cladding or stone cladding
can be used to restore the walls appearance. In some circumstances, specialist stone render can be used to
rebuild stone faces where an exact matched stone cannot be found.
The exterior skin of a building whether it be brick, stone, render or paint,
is important to the health of the entire structure. Defective exterior walls
will result in internal damp, loose masonry, rotting timbers, spalled stone
and brick. Very often, prevention is much cheaper than the cure!
There is a wide variety of systems available for new build structures,
ranging from monocouche renders, decorative acrylic renders or brick
and stone cladding. A combination of two systems such as render and
cladding can provide an attractive finish. A specification can be
drafted to match part of an existing building, for example when applying
to a newly built extension.
We have had some unprompted responses from our customers all over the UK
over the years and we are undoubtedly proud to showcase these on our website.
These testimonials are all genuine responses from our customers which
naturally reflect our commitment to quality and customer service.
Here is one of our recent customers, Tom and Linda. Their house suffered
from cracked walls, cracked render and old flaking paint and was in need
of a good quality exterior wall renovation

We followed our
process, ensuring Tom and Linda were completely happy through the entire process.

brands perform well in all applications). These top quality brands spend
millions of pounds in research and development of their products, something

This particular property was clearly in need of a face lift, but the problems were more than
just cosmetic. Movement between the property and an extension caused cracks in the walls
and incorrect installation of new windows both caused damp in the property. See our
masonry coatings gallery
page, where we give an overview of each job with before and after pictures.

A Word From Our Director

If there is one vital thing I have learnt in my time, it is, that to 'Thrive and Survive', especially in the current economic climate, a good attitude and specific attention to quality and customer satisfaction is the key attribute of any business.
