Brick Repointing

Brick repointing is a crucial process involving the restoration of the mortar joints in masonry construction. Over time, exposure to weather and natural wear can lead to gaps or voids forming between the bricks, creating openings for water to infiltrate. The entry of water through these gaps can cause substantial harm, including frost-induced deterioration and the dissolution and deposition of salts within the structure.

Our highly skilled team of experts specializes in brick repointing, handling both traditional and modern techniques for restoring building structures. Using advanced tools and methods, we guarantee that the brickwork keeps its original splendour and looks refreshed. As the foremost specialists in repointing in London, we take great pride in revitalizing all masonry through our restoration services.

Looking at the examples of our jobs below, you can see the positive effect of repointed bricks can have on the overall appeal. This will raise your property’s value and saleability.

We use a specially formulated brick cleaning solution that will not damage the brick work and removes unsightly atmospheric soiling and returns the brick work to it’s original colour.

We are specialist brick cleaning and restoration contractors based in London with over 20 years combined experience in the industry. Our brick cleaning process removes dirt and staining that has deposited on brickwork. We clean the brickwork without damaging the brick itself, or pointing. After the suitable preparation (sheeting windows, etc) we apply specially formulated brick cleaning formula to the surface, and this is thoroughly worked in and rinsed off. The end result will be to reveal the original colour and texture of the brick face.

DOFF is a steam based stone cleaning system able to achieve temperatures of 150°C at the nozzle end. The operator can regulate the temperature and pressure to remove many types of paint or biological matter (mosses, lichens, algae).

DOFF steam cleaning is ideal for the removal of various surface coatings which have become bonded to brick, stone and other substrates and at the same time allows the operator to clean stone without use of chemicals to prolongs the good looks and life of the cleaned surface. The heat of the water also helps to kill the spores of organic matter thus increasing the length of time needed between cleaning. DOFF system is very kind to the substrate that is being cleaned and is therefore liked by listed building officers throughout the country.

Paint removal is a process where unwanted paint is dissolved with specialist masonry chemicals and thorough hydro cleansing. Once this process is complete the bricks are left undamaged and once again displaying their natural colour and beauty.

The main reason for paint removal is to restore a building to its original glory. A steam pressure washing system is used, if necessary, in conjunction with chemicals to strip off the specific layers in question to an exact level, returning the surface to its original face. We use our wealth of experience and technical knowledge to select the most appropriate cleaning solution for the substrate at hand. Our background in surface conservation and restoration means we are fully able to remove both unsightly graffiti and any coats of paint which may need replacing or removing, even if your building or ornament is particularly delicate. In order to remove the paint, we normally have to work from scaffold. The areas to be worked on are assessed and the surroundings of these areas are sheeted. Then we are ready to apply specially formulated paint stripping chemicals with a view to breaking down or dissolving the paint, and washing off.

Stone restoration can be labour intensive but ultimately, highly rewarding. This process involves nebulous spray cleaning which once completed will return stone to it’s full glory.

We have over 20 years of experience in the stone restoration. Our experienced craftsmen have the skills, experience and knowledge to sympathetically restore and enhance damaged or decayed stone work. We can restore damaged stonework using stone indents. In this process our craftsmen will remove the damaged area, carefully inserting a new piece of stone in its place. Such indents are colour matched to the surrounding stonework as closely as possible.
