London Repointing and Restoration Testimonials
We had brick cleaning, repointing, and repair carried out on the whole of our Victorian terrace house. Kevin’s team showed up exactly when he said they would, finished the job in the specified time and for the agreed upon price. Dave (tuck pointing specialist) and Ryan did a fantastic job on the front of the house–we now have neighbours and strangers alike commenting on how great it looks. It was a genuine restoration.
The more simple repointing at the back of the house also looks neat and tidy, and the guys assessed some structural problems, seamlessly patching in new bricks. When we had a slight problem (exhaust fan vents had been bricked over), the guys came back to fix it straight away, taking the trouble to lay in air bricks so the vents would look as tidy as the rest of the house. You could probably find a crew to do repointing more cheaply but you would struggle to find the professionalism, skill, and friendliness of Kevin’s team.
Really great repointing job done by Conor and Jamie of London Repointing and Restoration.
When Kevin suggested that getting the bricks cleaned will make it look 10 times better, he was wrong as it looks a million times better! A real professional job, really nice guys to deal with and we are so very happy with the results. Looks like our house has just been newly built!
We are delighted with the work undertaken on our house.
Kevin and his team provided an easy to understand quote at the outset and kept to agreed dates, the work was completed in a timely fashion.
I am happy to fully recommend their services.
London Repointing and Restoration spent 4 weeks repointing and cleaning the whole of our semi-detached house.
I could not recommend this company more highly, Paul and his team of 3 turned up at 7.30 every morning and worked 8 hours straight. They were hard working, courteous perfectionists who explained each part of the job very thoroughly so I knew exactly what was happening each day.
The biggest challenge was removing the render from the side wall and then repointing the bricks as we did not know what condition the bricks would be in. They are very clean and tidy workers and take great pride in their work – deservedly so as our Victorian house now looks like a new build! Kevin responded quickly to calls and emails and visited the house frequently to check on progress. The guys are even going to come back and make good any patches of repointing after our roof is replaced next week. The work has not only added value to our property aesthetically, but it has rectified some existing problems with damp and cracked bricks, and it should prevent more issues occurring in the future.
Thank you Kevin and team, we are thrilled and have no hesitation in recommending your company.
We are very happy with the way our home looks now, Kevin and his team have done a great job. Always polite and professional with the mess and disruption kept to a minimum. I would highly recommend.
We are extremely happy with the work carried out by Kevin and his team.
They were very thorough in their efforts to minimise mess and disruption, and left the outside as clean as possible at the end of each day. They kept us updated throughout, and helped us to decide on the finish most suitable for the house. We remain completely overwhelmed with the end result, it has far exceeded our expectations and transformed the appearance of our house.
We would have no hesitation in recommending London Repointing and Restoration, they are experts in what they do.
Kevin and his team recently transformed the front of our Edwardian house in Hither Green with traditional “Ribbon and Tuck” pointing. Kevin’s team carefully removed layers of paint and render to reveal the original London stock brickwork. Dave (Kevin’s highly skilled tuck pointing craftsman) surveyed the other houses in the area and with a healthy competitive attitude set out to produce the best finish in the neighbourhood. He carefully colour-matched the lime mortar and with meticulous attention to detail laid and trimmed the thin lines of lime putty to create the refined tuck pointing finish around the red bricks of the windows and door.
The finish really speaks for itself and many of our neighbours have admired and enquired about the work.
Here is the testimonial. Sorry it has taken so long. I was reminded of it today as the scaffolding has finally gone down and the house looks beautiful!
Kevin’s team did a great job taking off the pebbledash from the back of our house. It was done quickly and carefully and the house looks great now. And they were very easy to have around – Danny was always super-helpful and ready to go out of his way.
We are happy to give London Repointing & Restoration the following testimonial:
We are blown away by the finished result of having the pebble-dash removed from our Victorian cottage and the original brick facade fully restored. As all the other properties in our row are pebble-dashed or rendered it was a leap into the unknown as to the colour and pattern of bricks we would find. Luckily the Victorians didn’t let us down!
Kevin’s team at London Repointing & Restoration (Dave and Ryan) spent two weeks working on our house. The pebble-dash was removed quickly to reveal the bricks, and Kevin made suggestions on one of his regular site visits, changing the specification to include Tuck and Flush pointing to give an authentic premium finish.
Due to having UPVc sash windows that had been fitted flush with the pebble-dash, and proud of the bricks, we needed a creative solution to rectify this. Dave had some great ideas – and was also open to suggestions – which resulted in simple but fantastic rendered window surrounds.
My wife and I are both designers so really appreciate the level of skill and knowledge these guy’s have – it really is an art form!
Kevin was always very quick to reply to emails and come to site, whilst Dave and Ryan were always professional, polite, friendly and helpful – we were happy to have them in and around our house.
I’d have no hesitation in recommending London Repointing & Restoration.
Kevin and and his team did a great job at our house. Repointing all of the brickwork and a complete re-rendering of the front of the house. They worked quickly, without fuss and to a high standard. I’d highly recommend them.
