This property had to be fully re-pointed following very hard cement being incorrectly used during pointing five 5 years prior. #Spalling damage was caused to the bricks and quite a few had to be replaced. A lime mortar was used, in keeping with original build.

The two properties in this picture were re-pointed using a hydrated lime. Paint was also removed from walls and poor choices of modern airbricks were replaced with airbricks closer to the era.

This old, orchard wall in #Wrexham  , was in terrible disrepair, with damage caused by the growth of a 50ft Ivy through the centre and separated it. More than 500 age related bricks were replaced and re-pointed in a hydraulic lime.

#Pointing  Work on a Farm House in Mold, Flintshire.   This 1700's farm house was flooded, with water reaching as far as 2 Metres up the building, causing severe damage. Re-pointing repairs were carried out via an insurance company, using cement based mortar that was too strong a mix for the stone work. I was then commissioned to make good by re-pointing using hydraulic lime.
