Pointing Services Acton

Our team at Tony Wallace consists of experienced workers who can deal with all your masonry problems and needs. We have been working in Acton and other surrounding areas for many years now, providing the best quality services and best rates to our customers. We understand that some customers can get confused while choosing different services, so we try our best to describe the processes.

Pointing is the maintenance service for considerably older buildings. The joints between the bricks weaken with time, as the mortar which acts as a gap-filling adhesive between the bricks has less lifespan than the bricks themselves. To fill the gaps, our workers use the best quality cement for the mortar mixture. Using the best quality cement is not only necessary for the stability of the building, but also to make sure that pointing service lasts longer. A recent building will require less work while an older building will require more work.

Pebble dash Removal Acton

Pebbledash is a strong layer that is used on the exterior walls of the houses to save them from erosion caused by harsh environmental conditions. It consists of pebbles, lime, sand, gravel, and shells. Some people not like it and may show a desire to get it removed; our experts can deal with that. If the job is done poorly, the internal brickwork can get damaged. Safety of the building is always our priority. We have been doing these services in Acton for a long time now; therefore, our labourer safely use manual tools to remove the layer. If accidentally some bricks get eroded, our workers will restore them to their original condition or at least good as original condition.

Paint Removal Acton

Whenever customers affiliated with Tony Wallace want to change the outlook of their homes, the first thing that comes to their mind is a change of paint.

Paint removal process is a little tricky. Our experienced workers first try to remove the paint layer by only using water. If the paint is not old, then it works. Otherwise, we have to use some harsh chemicals, like phosphates, to remove the remaining paint. The action of water pressure and chemicals may cause erosion of some bricks which may not be good for the stability of the building. Our workers are fully aware of this potential problem and will restore the bricks to good as an original condition if not original. This is done through the pointing process.

We advise our clients not to try these services themselves using tricks available on the internet, but only consult professionals. Any process done wrongly can be a threat to the building’s structure stability.
