Dave and his team have done an amazing job - and they came in considerably more reasonable than our other quotes. Everything was done when they said it was going to be and they were all very friendly! Would definitely recommend & use again

David was completely reliable - notified me when the job was to start, tidied up really well at the end and charged exactly what he'd quoted. The work he has done on the front of my house is that of an artist! Everyone round about here has been admiring it (and they're not slow to say if they think something's not up to scratch!) The pointing to the stonework on part of the house has really improved what had been a collection of ad-hoc repairs.

Excellent experience with this firm. Wasn't the cheapest quote I had but I had a good feeling about them from the start. Gave me a start date and contacted me beforehand to explain that they would be a day late as weather conditions prevented them from finishing previous job on time - good customer service. Extremely pleased with the quality of the finished job and was kept fully up to date with progress/issues etc. Dave andMark were a pleasure to deal with. Would use again without hesitation.

Made an excellent job of pointing the sandstone at front of house. Toned in well with the stone colour. Kept me informed throughout of what he was doing and clearly has a real passion and skill for his trade. Would certainly recommend him to others.

The phrase you pay for what you get is true. Originally I thought the quote was high. But justification of it by the experience of dealing with them and the craftmanship through the job changed my thinking. Now finished I am very pleased with the result and would recommend them to anyone.

Work started later than originally estimated but was then finished within allocated time which was good. Pleased with work but made decision based on overall presentation therefore it worth the value we placed on it

I have a georgian house built around 1820 which requires the front wall and some or te side wall repointing. I am told lime mortar was used in the build, should it be used in the repointing?

    Robbie, You should most definately use lime mortar. You will need an N.h.l 3.5 lime mortar. The mortar ratio should 5: 2 that's two lime which is the binder and five sand which is the aggregate. Do not put cement anywhere near a lime mortar building as this just traps moisture behind the building fabric and causes various problems! Dave

We need back of our Edwardian house repointed to match existing pointing and damaged brick replaced to match existing. Bricks are dropping as result so need this attending to - we have had advice on minor movement. Which category do I choose.
