Brick Cleaning & Pointing By Tony Wallace

Brick Restoration Sewardstone

Pointing Services Sewardstone

Tony Wallace is a recognized name in the masonry industry and our experienced workers have been working in Sewardstone and other areas of London ensuring all your brickwork and masonry problems from small cracks to larger brick repairs are resolved. A well-maintained building not only adds aesthetic value to the community but also ensures a durable structure.

We have been restoring residential, commercial, schools, and other buildings for many years now and client satisfaction is 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 clients who do not have enough knowledge about procedures do not choose an unnecessary service.

Pointing is used to repair joints between bricks which can result due to aging of the building and erosion due to environmental conditions as the mortar holding the bricks together does not have as long lifespan as the bricks. Therefore, recent buildings require less work while old buildings require more. The defective mortar from joints is removed and the void is filled with new mortar. Using the best quality cement for new mortar, we ensure that the pointing service will work for a longer period.

Pebble dash Removal Sewardstone

Pebble-dash is a harsh material consisting of lime, sand, gravel, and often small pebbles. Therefore, 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.

As the mixture of pebble-dash suggests, removing the layer can be difficult, but not impossible, and so requires specialists to make sure the inner brickwork is not damaged. We advise our customers not to use any techniques or tricks themselves and consult professionals to avoid heavy erosion of inner bricks and unsmooth walls as a result.

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

Further stability can be achieved by pointing  process on the brickworks.

Paint Removal Sewardstone

We acknowledge that our customers are always looking for good change and making their homes more appealing; the most prominent change is 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 Sewardstone is fully aware of the negative impacts of poor paint removal services, and the stability of the building is always our priority.

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 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.
