Brick Cleaning & Pointing By Tony Wallace

Brick Restoration Kensington

Pointing Services Kensington

Tony Wallace is one of the most trusted and reliable masonry service providers in London. Our efficient workers have been concluding several masonry and house maintenance projects in Kensington and West London for many years now. We completely understand that some of our customers may have little or no knowledge about the processes and so we want to make sure they are not left behind in any way.

The process of pointing is very important for the structural stability of the building. When the building gets old, the paste that is used to bind the bricks together starts to crumble. This paste is called mortar. The deteriorated mortar is first removed and then our workers use the best quality cement in making a fresh batch of mortar for filling.

Pebble dash Removal Kensington

pebble dash is created with a variety of pebbles, glass, stones, shells and other materials. It is used as a layer on the exterior walls of the house and became popular in medieval times. Pebble Dash, as the name suggests, is a harsh layer; therefore, it is very resilient to environmental effects and requires very low maintenance. Some people may not like the pebble dash layer and may desire to get it removed. We have got you covered!

Our labourers use manual tools to remove the pebble dash layer while being careful not to damage the brickwork underneath. The aim is to recover the smooth wall. However, if – due to human error– some bricks get damaged, the workers will restore them to original or good as original condition. The structural stability or aesthetic appeal of the wall will not be compromised in any case. After the layer removal, the pointing service can help maintain the smoothness.

Paint Removal Kensington

Walls suffer a lot of wearing in years. Fresh paint not only gives walls a cleaner look but can also add a personalized touch to your house. To coat a new layer of paint, the previous paint must be removed.

For the paint that is not too old, our workers work with water. If the water pressure is not helpful, then they have to use harsh chemicals like phosphates to help in the removal process. The use of harsh chemicals might damage the bricks underneath and we are fully aware of that. In case of any erosion, the labourers will restore the bricks to the original or good as the original state. The structural stability of the building is always our priority.

Our team at Tony Wallace advises the clients not to try any DIY hacks and tricks, but only consult professionals.
