Colin Showler came and viewed our rendering job. He was thoroughly professional with superb product knowledge and care for our needs. Whilst we selected a different vendor, I would highly recommend this company for the superb produxt they have and the guarantee they provide for 25 years. The in home demo was super.

I can't speak highly enough of this company. Jeff and Dave who did the works were 5star. Punctual,clean,kept me informed and repaired minor defects which were picked up as they carried out the works. I would certainly recommend this company to anyone. Well done!

Something that needed to be seen immediately. With great contact through to quotation it turned out to be a pleasurable experience, the good weather helped but Alan organised a team asap and I couldn't be happier with such a professional outfit. Highly recommended.

Spoke on the phone once to confirm a date to price up, never heard from since and as you can guess no one turned up on the arranged date

It was a pleasure to deal with this company. The man who carried out the rendering did an excellent job. He arrived around 7am every morning and worked diligently throughout the day. Many friends and neighbours have commented on how hard he worked and the splendid appearance of the render now it is completed. With a 25 year no quibble guarantee, I feel secure in the knowledge that the problem with damp has been eradicated. I would certainly recommend this company to others.

Work took place when agreed and the finish was professional. I lost quite a bit of a gravel paving when everything was cleared up and the price did seem high but I have no yardstick to judge against. Good looking finish with a 25 year guarantee to add to my deeds.

Hi, I have a 3 bed victorian house in Forest Gate, whose front face is ruined by an horrible installation of stone cladding. I was wondering if there could be any chance to remove the cladding and restore the original bricks below? Thanks Francesca

    This is something we have undertaken before on a Victorian Property on Brighton Road, Purley. Unfortunately the answer can't be 100% accurate until you remove the cladding. There can be 3 outcomes, these change according to how well the cladding was attached in the first place and the condition of the bricks before the cladding installation. 1) The cladding is easily removed by hand (badly attached) and the bricks only need gentle cleaning, mortar re-pointing and a little re-facing / printing of the bricks maybe. Ensure the brick-work is then protected by a water repellent/masonry creme to help the bricks last as long as possible. 2) The cladding is removed with more than a hand tool. This may mean the surfaces of the bricks are too badly damaged to be repaired correctly and last the test of time exposed to the weather. You will find full brick re-printing services however they will be prone to serious problems in the future, blowing/spauling, plus this is the most expensive option. You can repair them, re-point the mortar and the coat the surfaces of the bricks with a specialist coating/paint. This may not be ideal, however will leave the character and detail of the brickwork. Victorian properties can look nice with a subtle pastel colour on the brickwork and whitework/detailing in smooth white. 3) The cladding very well attached and is removed leaving major damage to the brickwork underneath, if this happens then rendering the brickwork may be your only option and then coating/painting to protect for the future. Unfortunately this may not be ideal but will look better than the cladding. By all means send us a message and we can pass on pictures and locations of properties having been under the same process. Until all the cladding is removed you really can't know, even a test area will not work as you may find some parts well attached and others not. Please whatever you do remember my point of the brick restoration, if the brickwork is too far gone, you could get it restored to look great for a few years however, long term this could turn into another similar cost to rectify and possibly damp problems internally. Always best to prepare for worst case scenario in this instance.
