Oldbury's did a fantastic job re-pointing our Victorian house in the traditional lime mortar style and I would definitely recommend. We barely knew the work was going on, it was surprisingly clean, quick and quiet and we love the result.
Oldbury's made an excellent job of restoring the front of our house to its former glory. The property was subject to a number of problems such as wall tie failure and previously poor repair work. The front of the house had previously been painted & rendered to hide the damage, in particular around the bay window. Jon made an excellent job of taking the time to remove bricks & properly re-instate new wall ties, rather than ruin the face of the brick with remedial wall ties. The Lime re-pointing works were carried out to the highest standard and a great finish was achieved.
New arches were installed in the lower bay, keeping the original keystones and restoring the structural integrity. Where bricks were removed or replaced great care was taken to find matching bricks. The main chimney was also repaired and a bullseye opening formed for a new window, again to a high standard. Jon is a very hard and efficient worker and I will not hesitate to use Oldbury's again, or recommend to others. .
Jon made a superb job of rebuilding our ornate but very poorly chimney stack. Beautiful pointing and brick work matching with traditional lime mortar, looks fabulous, thank you.
