Brick Cleaning & Pointing By Tony Wallace

Brick Restoration Hampstead

Pointing Services Hamstead

Our pointing team at Pointing by Tony Wallace is experienced and has worked for many years now in Hampstead and other North London areas. We understand how complex the process is and therefore we make sure that our customers who have little or no knowledge about the process are not left behind.

The process of pointing consists of refilling the brick joints with mortar. It is a crucial process for the structural stability of the building as the weather conditions cause the mortar to erode. Our workers use the best quality cement in making the new mix for the mortar. This not only maintains the stability of the building but also allows the pointing process to last longer. It is of course obvious that a recent building will require less work while an older building will require more work.

Pebble dash Removal Hamstead

As the name suggests, a Pebble-dash 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 of the walls. It gets accumulated with various dust particles over the years.

Our labourers have been successfully removing pebble dash in Hampstead for a long time now. They use manual tools to remove the pebble dash all the while being very careful to not ruin the walls or bricks underneath. However, due to human error, if at any point the bricks are eroded, we make sure to restore them to their original condition or a good condition. The structural stability of the building will always be maintained. Further stability can be achieved by the process of pointing.

Paint Removal Hamstead

Most of the customers that are affiliated with us at Pointing by Tony Wallace are modern people and thinkers. For this reason, they readily acknowledge and accept change. They come to us looking to change their otherwise not ruined paint.

For paint that is not old, we only try to work with water. The pressure of the water helps soften the dust particles and the paint layer. However, if the paint is not coming off with the water, we have to use harsh chemicals such as phosphates to help remove it.

The pressure of the water along with the use of such harsh chemicals can cause some brickwork erosion. It is therefore important for the bricks to be restored to their original condition or good as new condition so that the stability of the building is not compromised. This is done through the process of pointing.

Our Paint Removal team at Pointing by Tony Wallace advises clients not to try any DIY hacks and techniques at home but instead consult specialists only.
