Brick Cleaning & Pointing By Tony Wallace

Brick Restoration Woodford

Pointing Services Wanstead

Our pointing team at Pointing by Tony Wallace is experienced and have worked for the pointing process for many years now, both in and around London. We understand how complex the process is and therefore we make sure that our customers who may have little or no knowledge about the process are not left behind. Consequently, we make sure that we help our customers as much as possible so that they are satisfied by the process.

The process of pointing is very important for the structural stability of the building. The process of pointing consists of filling the brick joints with mortar. It is a crucial process for the building as the weather conditions as well as the environmental hazards cause the bricks to break off and erode affecting the stability of the building.

There are two best ways to prevent these issues. The first one is to use the best quality of bricks and the second one is using the best quality of cement during the pointing process. Both these are especially important to maintain the stability of the building and having the pointing process working for a longer period. It is of course obvious that a recent building will require less work while an older building will require more work.

Pebble dash Removal Wanstead

As the name suggests, 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 and gets accumulated with various dust particles over the years. Our team at Tony Wallace, thus advises our customers to not try and do any DIY hacks themselves at home and only seek professional help.

Our labourers are experienced over many years working with these materials and concoctions to achieve the desired results. We have workers who 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 back to their original state or at least a good condition so the structural stability of the building is maintained. The stability of the building can be further achieved by the process of pointing.

Paint Removal Wanstead

Most of the customers that are affiliated with us at Tony Wallace are modern people and thinkers. For this reason, they readily accept and acknowledge change. They come to us looking to change their otherwise not ruined paint. Our team too understands the repercussions of the process of paint removal and thus always advise our customers to only look for professional help and not try it themselves.

The paint removal process is a little tricky. For paint that is not older, we only try to work with water. The pressure of the water can help mellow down the dust particles and make it come out early. However, if the paint is not coming off with the water, we use harsh chemicals such as phosphates to help remove it.

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