We understand the fact that our clients may be interested in preserving the aesthetic appeal of their buildings but may have little knowledge about which process to choose. We have got you covered!

Pointing is the process used to repair joints between bricks, which can result due to deterioration of the mortar. Mortar is used as a gap-filling paste between bricks and can get damaged as the building gets old. The deteriorated mortar is removed and fresh mortar is applied. We make sure that the best quality cement is used in the mixture of mortar because mortar acts as a support to spread vertical loads evenly down into the brickwork and so it is a matter of structural stability of the building.

Pebble dash Removal Archway

Pebble-dash, as the name suggests, is the layer of a mixture of pebble, lime, sand, shells and gravel, which is used on the exteriors of the buildings to protect them from environmental damage. Some people may find pebble dash unappealing and desire to get it removed. Removing the pebble-dash can be difficult and if done poorly, it can damage the brickwork. Our experienced labourers have been dealing with this process for years now in Archway and use manual tools to ensure the safety of the brickwork. For instance, if some bricks get damaged, the labourers will restore them to the original or good as the original state.

Further stability can be achieved by carrying out the pointing process afterwards.

Paint Removal Archway

Everyone likes good paint and it is also a very integral part of the house in terms of aesthetics. We understand that our customers may want to change the existing paint either because it is too old or they don’t like it.

For the paint that is not too old, we work with water. The water pressure softens the dust layer and the paint. This way the paint layer can be removed easily. However, if the pressure of the water does not work then we use some chemicals, such as phosphates, to help in the process.

The water pressure and the use of chemicals may cause brick erosion, which our labourers are fully aware of. They will restore the internal bricks to original or good as original condition. The structural stability will not be compromised.
