Pointing Services Queens Park

Our team at Tony Wallace consists of specialists who can deal with all your masonry problems and needs. We have been working in queen’s Park and other areas of West London for many years now providing the best rates to our customers. We understand that some customers may not have enough knowledge about the processes in building maintenance, so we try our best to describe the processes.

Pointing service is needed when gaps form between the bricks. The joints between the bricks become weak with time because the mortar which acts as a gap-filling adhesive has a lesser lifespan than the bricks themselves. Our workers use the best quality cement in making the fresh mortar mix to fill the gap. The composition of the mix also depends on the composition of existing mortar on the wall. Using the best quality cement is not only necessary for the stability of the wall, but also to make sure that pointing service lasts longer.

Pebble dash Removal Queens Park

Pebbledash 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 walls to provide them protection against harsh environmental conditions. Pebbledash gets accumulated with various dust particles over many years. Some residents may simply not like pebble dash and may be interested in removing it completely.

Our laborers have a good experience of removing pebble dash in Queen’s Park and use manual tools while being careful not to damage the brickwork underneath. The main purpose of removal is to recover the smooth wall underneath. However, if accidentally a brick gets eroded, we make sure that it is restored to its original condition or at least to a good and safe condition. The aesthetic appeal of the wall will be restored.

Paint Removal Queens park

Apart from giving homes a new look and sealing out moisture, a fresh coat of paint can also have an impact on the moods of the residents.

Changing the paint of the wall does not require existing paint to be old or flaky. 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 use strong chemicals, like phosphates, to help in the process.

It is a possibility that the water pressure and chemicals might 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.

Our team at Tony Wallace advises the customers at Queen’s Park to avoid using any DIY hacks and techniques, but only consult professionals.
