Brick Restoration Paddington

Pointing Services Paddington

Tony Wallace is a recognized name in the brickwork and masonry industry. Our specialist workers have been working in Paddington and other areas of London ensuring all your brickwork problems from small cracks to larger brick repairs are solved. Customer satisfaction is always our priority along with the structural stability of the building. The processes in building maintenance can be difficult to understand, so we make sure that our customers who do not have enough knowledge about the procedures are not left behind.

Pointing process is used to repair joints between bricks, which can result due to aging of the building and erosion due to environmental conditions. Therefore, newer buildings require less work while older buildings require more. The defective mortar from joints is removed and the void is filled with new mortar. By using the best quality cement for new mortar, we ensure that the pointing service will stay effective for a long time.

Pebble dash Removal Paddington

Pebble-dash is a hard material consisting of lime, sand, gravel, and often small pebbles. It is mostly used on exterior walls or exposed locations of the house to provide a resilient surface. Some people may find the pebble dash layer visually unappealing, so we at Tony Wallace have got you covered.

Removing the pebble dash layer can be difficult, so it requires specialists to make sure the inner brickwork is not damaged. We advise our customers not to use any DIY techniques themselves and consult professionals to avoid heavy erosion of inner bricks, resulting in unsmooth walls.

Our workers, who have been working in Paddington for a long time now, use manual tools to make sure the structure of the building is not affected and, for instance, if due to any human error the bricks get slightly damaged, our workers will restore the bricks to their original condition or at least to a good as original condition.

Further stability can be achieved by the pointing process.

Paint Removal Paddington

We acknowledge that our customers are always looking for good changes; the most prominent change is a new paint. Changing the paint of the wall does not require that the existing paint is old or flaky. Our team of paint removal experts at Paddington is fully aware of the negative impacts of poor paint removal services. For the paint that is not too old, we work with water. The pressure of water softens the dust layer and helps in the removal of the paint layer. If this method does not work, then we resort to using strong chemicals, like phosphates, to help in the process.

However, the action of water pressure and chemicals on the wall can cause erosion of bricks. It is important to restore the bricks to their original condition or to a good state, which does not compromise the stability of the structure. This is done through the process of pointing.
