Chimney Repairs


 

It is not uncommon for stone built or brick built chimneys to deteriorate with age.

Chimney breasts are often exposed to the elements, decay and corrosion can occur due to natural weather conditions, even if the brick walls around your home are still in good condition.

In most cases a deteriorating chimney means the mortar between the brick joints has degraded, the bricks may be broken or cracked, creating unsightly and possibly an unstable chimney.

Chimney repaired, re-pointed & serviced.

High Pressure Cleaning

High Pressure Cleaning for driveways, paths and patio areas.

Stage one, the application of weed killer, which must be left for the minimum of 48 hours for the treatment to be absorbed into the rooting system of the weeds and then the procedure is to use the high pressure cleaner to clean off all algae, bacteria, moss and stagnant stains.

Stage two, once the block pave surface is dry to a satisfactory finish then re-coat with dry kiln sand, which should be brushed in to stop further movement of the bricks and to seal all small areas.

When cleaning brick or stone work the procedure of cleaning is to use a high pressure cleaner.

The high pressure cleaner uses high pressure but with a low volume of water.  This system is more eco friendly and does not waste valuable water.

This cleaning system requires no chemicals.

 

RE-POINTING


The correct procedure for re-pointing of brickwork is to first grind out with diamond tips.

Then clean out all existing loose dust and particles from and around the brickwork.

Then re-point by the means of a re-pointing gun, which gives the correct amount of mortar required back in to the area round the bricks.

After the procedure of injecting mortar between the bricks, at a consistant rate

Leave the mortar to settle for a short time and then the process of barring off to ensure the mortar has been correctly forced between the bricks to get the smooth finish required.
