Quality masonry laid by skilled tradesmen is our core business. Our time-served, experienced, bricklayers provide a first class build and we take utmost pride in the finish – and our pledge to deliver on time, on budget, with zero defects. All aspects of masonry including stonework and repointing are incorporated in the skillsets of our workforce who are all CSCS trained. Repeat business and recommendations lie at the heart of our diverse customer base, we are cost effective, with testimonials from leading construction companies. We also have a maintenance division specialising in raking out and repointing and replacing remedial wall ties. Over time the cement and mortar between the bricks of your home or building can crack, crumble or just simply wear away. When this happens, the chances of water getting between the cracks and gaps increases. This can mean a variety of issues and problems for you and your home.
