This pillar is pride of place at the entrance way to a large property in Kensington, London. The brick pillar had been restored but the mortar joint in particular did not match the original, meaning that the brickwork stood out and was unsightly. In addition, trades had spilt material directly on to the brickwork, leaving an unsightly staining.
No problem, Remedial Repair, attended site and restored the brick pillar to best, removing the staining and tinting the mortar and brickwork to blend perfectly. As always, all the work is fully guaranteed for the life of the brick and will weather as normal alongside the original adding brickwork perfectly.
Just a small area of tinting work required to this brick pillar that had been rebuilt following an incident that had seen half of the pillar collapse. The builder had been able to source the right brick as the pillar was not old and the bricks were still being manufactured and were readily available via a local builders merchant yard.
However, as is often the case, the bricks had changed slightly during production from batch to batch, meaning that the brickwork still stood out and did not match perfectly as was required.
Not a problem for Remedial Repair, we attended site and all the brickwork was colour matched to blend with the original perfectly. The work being completed in less than one day.
As is always the case, all the work is fully guaranteed for the life of the brick and will weather as normal alongside the original adjoining brickwork. The colour tint has not had any affect on the technical characteristics of the brick and the brickwork will weather as normal alongside the original.
Here is a simple repair to an arstone cill, artstone being referred to by many as masonry stone or artstone masonry. By its very nature it is a fickle and delicate product that can easily be damaged by simply being installed on site, let alone additional damaged caused through general site activities nearby once it has been installed.
Our repair took only a few hours and we were able to work around the general activity on site. As well as creating a repair that rebuilt the damaged artstone material, we also colour treated the repair once dry to perfectly match the original reconstituted stone colour, leaving an invisible repair.
In this case the work was for a national housebuilder. As well as having the work signed off on site by the site agent, we also uploaded images of the completed work (before and after), along with the guarantee and signed off site sheet to the secure Remedial Repair online account for this customer which they can access from wherever (from their office many miles away from site) and see that the work had been completed to a high standard. This also gives them a clear record for their site quality control and any manufacturer claims that they may wish to purse to claim costs for the work.
