Brick Cleaning & Pointing By Tony Wallace

Brick Restoration Chiswick

Pointing Services Chiswick

We at Tony Wallace are a team of workers specializing in masonry and brickwork services and have been working in Chiswick and other West London areas for a long time now. Customer satisfaction is our priority and we make sure that they are getting the best rates for the services.

Some customers who have little or no knowledge about house maintenance may get anxious in choosing services. We have got you covered!

Pointing service is needed when gaps start to form between brick joints. This is dangerous for the structural stability of the building and should be taken care of as soon as possible. The gaps can form due to harsh environmental conditions and aging of the building because the mortar which is used as a gap-filling adhesive between the bricks has a shorter lifespan than the bricks. Our workers first remove the old mortar and apply the fresh mortar. We use the best quality cement in making the mixture of mortar to make sure that the service lasts longer.

Pebble dash Removal Chiswick

As the name suggests, a Pebble dash is a mixture of various materials including pebbles, lime, sand, gravel and shells. For this reason, it is a very harsh material and is only used on the exterior of the walls. It gets accumulated with various dust particles over the years and some customers may want to remove it. Our labourers are experienced over many years working in Chiswick with these materials and concoctions to achieve the required results. We have workers who use manual tools to remove the pebble dash while being careful not to damage the brickwork underneath.

However, due to human error, if at any point the bricks get eroded, we make sure to restore them to their original state or at least a good state so the building’s structure stability is maintained. Further stability can be achieved by the pointing process.

Paint Removal Chiswick

The customers of Tony Wallace are modern people who appreciate positive changes in surroundings. It can be something as simple as a change of paint.

For the paint that is not too old, we try to use water only. The water pressure helps mellow down the dust particles and soften the layer. We advise our customers to avoid using any DIY tips and tricks from the internet and only consult professionals. If the action of water does not give any favorable results, we resort to using harsh chemicals, like phosphates, to help in the process. The water pressure and chemicals might damage some bricks and our team is fully aware of that. We will repair the bricks to a good and satisfactory condition. The structural stability of the building will not be compromised in any case and neither the aesthetic appeal of the wall.
