My house was built 10 years ago in a wooded area. Consequently the front path has sunk. I should like a strong base underneath and paving stones/bricks relaid. The path is 13 ft long by 3 feet wide approx.
Relevelled and re-laid my front path with a strong base, paving stones and blocks. The result is a good looking path which enhances the entrance to my house.
Main thing is repairing slight damage to stonework to a high standard. If repointing I'd want lime mortar used. Basically I'd like the front and rear of the house carefully repaired and then the non-brickwork painted.
Darren and his team have got lots of experience in all kinds of stone and brickwork, having worked on churches and stately homes as well as houses. They offered useful advice, and carried out repairs and lime mortar repointing to a high standard on my Victorian terraced house. The price was reasonable, they were punctual, and they left the site in a tidy state at the end of each day. Thoroughly recommended.
We're looking for someone who is experienced in laying shed bases. We had one previously laid and the concrete is very crumbly particularly when damp. We now want to make the existing base slightly larger to accommodate a bigger 10ftx8ft shed. You may be able to work with the existing base or perhaps have to remove it and start again. Please only apply if you have references of this particular nature.
Please contact via email or text message if possible. Cheers! Meg

The stone facade of the party wall / porch of my Victorian terraced house is pulling away from the brickwork. The piece of stone is approx 1.5m long and 30cm wide. The stone itself doesn't appear to be damaged, think it is more a case of fixing the stone back to the brickwork again.

We need someone to assess and cover 5-6 external steps that lead up to the raised ground floor of a Victorian house. The steps used to have bitumen on, before it was removed, but now are just exposed concrete. Rainwater is finding its way between the join of next door's steps (coated in bitumen) and our steps, and so the best course of action may be to re-coat our steps with bitumen and in the process cover the gap between the two sets of steps.

The stone pediment/gable at the top of our building has been damaged by a couple of harsh winters and needs repairing. The building is a Victorian semi-detached house, 3 storys high. The pediment/gable is a bit like a Dutch gable, but with straight edges and and a semi-circular top.
