Brick Cleaning & Pointing By Tony Wallace

Brick Restoration Swiss Cottage

Pointing Services Swiss Cottage

We at Tony Wallace provide the complete solution for all your masonry and house maintenance problems. We have been working in North London for many years now providing the best quality services and the best rates. Whether brick pointing is required or heavy repairs, we have the workforce and the equipment to help you out.
Choosing the right house maintenance service can be a complex process for customers who do not know about brickwork services. Therefore, we will explain when each service is needed.
Pointing refers to the process of filling the voids between the bricks. With time, the mortar (adhesive) used to fill the gaps between bricks deteriorates. For the structural stability of the building, the problem needs to be solved timely. Our specialist workers remove the deteriorated mortar completely and make a new mix of mortar using the best quality cement to apply to joints. The better the quality of mortar the longer the service will last. Good Pointing service also restores the visual appeal of the wall.

Pebble dash Removal Swiss Cottage

Pebble-Dash is a harsh material consisting of lime, sand, gravel, shells, and often small pebbles. It is mostly used on exposed locations of the house to provide a resistant surface against extreme weather conditions. Some people may find the pebble dash layer visually unappealing. We at Tony Wallace have got you covered. Our experienced labourers have been working in Swiss Cottage for a long time now ensuring the process of removal is safe and efficient. We use manual tools to remove the pebble dash while being very careful not to ruin the walls or bricks underneath. If accidentally a brick gets damaged, the workers will restore it to at least good condition if not original. The goal is to end up with a smooth brick wall.
Further stability can be achieved by the pointing process.

Paint Removal Swiss Cottage

Paint removal service can be done on both the exterior and interior walls of the house.
For paint that is not old, we only try to work with water. The pressure of the water can help mellow down the dust particles and the paint layer. If the paint is not coming off with the water, we resort to harsh chemicals such as phosphates to help remove it.

The water pressure along with the harsh chemicals can cause the bricks to erode. It is thus important for the bricks to be restored to their original condition or at least good condition. The stability of the wall will never be compromised.

Our team at Tony Wallace strongly advises clients not to try any DIY hacks at home, but instead consult specialists only.
