I have attached a pull up bar/ punch bag frame to the brick work above my conservatory door outside and the brick work is too brittle A) to hold my weight and B) even remain solid whilst punch bag is being used. If it was at all possible I'm curious if it is even possible to redo and strengthen a section of wall for the above purposes
We are moving house and have had a survey completed highlighting 3 jobs:-
1. Repoint valley on apex roof
2. Repoint patch brickwork
3. Repoint the side of chimney
We require a quote for these jobs and will need a receipt upon completion.
Detached property BL5 westhoughton.
We have four outside doorsteps that are too narrow and require brick edging/ borders. We calculate about 70 solid blue bricks in total. Small job but easy access and garage for mixing cement etc. Photo available.
Block or brick extension required to existing garage. Garage currently built against stone wall on 2 sides, which will remain. Extended garage will require other 2 walls built to eaves height (approx 210cm). Scope of works flexible from complete build (demolish old, lay foundations and bed and rebuild new incl. roof, windows and door) to building walls only onto new foundations, depending on price and timescales. New garage will have pitched slate roof.
House mainly rendered but with bricks round bottom (see photo). Some of the pointing round these bricks has disappeared and needs replacing. Also, the cement round the down pipe has broken and also needs repairing or replacing
Noticed some water marks on my porch inside and outside i Don’t have any vents or windows in my porch so need some advice and help please there is cracks in between the bricks by the looks of it it needs repointing unless someone can advice any different images attached
End wall of a two bed end terrace stone built house is bowing and requires pinning to floor and ceiling joists using Helifix or similar. Associated repointing to external front and rear wall cracks also required - note scaffolding may be needed as access is restricted by porches.
There was water ingress into the inside of the room during the heavy rain and strong winds we had in the winter. It looks like the pointing between the bricks is to blame. The insurance company require two assessments and quotes before proceding. The property is a small shop in Totton and only the front elevation is effected, and it seems to be just above the large front window.
Work in a primary school. Wall A - 16 metres long. Concrete block faced with brick to match the building. Wall height 60cm. Wall A will need a concrete path 45cm wide laid in front of the wall. this will divide the garden bed from the car park.
The second job is in the playground. Two walls one 10m the other 9m long. Concrete block faced with bricks. again about 60cm high.
I have two pallets of bricks already.
The wall is single skin and approx 2m tall by 6m long and when built (70’s) was not properly toothed in to the 3 existing piers (one either end and on in the middle) and leans, hence the needed rebuild. Will need top two thirds removed and replaced with new along total length including new piers.
