About

I have a passion for re-pointing brickwork that was passed down by my father who spent fifty years plying his trade. I was lucky enough to spend ten of those years, until his retirement, and six years since, working with him, learning traditional techniques and skills needed to carry out effective, tidy work, sympathetic to the buildings needs and requirements.

I have experience working on a variety of different properties including houses, perimeter walls, churches, schools, chimneys, fire places and interior walls.

Working with my customers I aim to provide a reliable, friendly service and a clear explanation of the work and procedures involved.

Great job & very reliable

This is the second time Dan has undertaken repointing on my house. He has done a great job on both occasions, carefully matching the mortar colour to the existing & matching the pointing style to the existing brickwork - this is particularly important as the house is listed & part of a Georgian terrace. Very reliable & trustworthy.

Garden Wall Repair After Tree Damage

Following damage to our garden wall by a massive sycamore tree, which has now been cut down, Dan Evans and his colleague replaced bricks and repaired and pointed the wall. In all my dealings with Dan; I found him a pleasure to interact with. He was friendly, polite, honest and totally reliable. His initial assessment of the job and the work carried out were both utterly professional. The cost for the job seemed fair, and if anything, less than I expected. He was always punctual, worked hard and quietly and was meticulous in his preparation and cleaning up. I am delighted with the completed work and cannot fault him, his expertise or the work done. I am delighted to recommend him.

I was delighted with the pointing work Paul carried out on some crumbling brickwork at my property. From Dan's first visit to quote for the job to the final result, I was impressed by how much they both knew about their specialist area, spotting things I hadn't even noticed and finding ingenious ways to repair hard-to-reach places. Paul was very courteous, tidy and hard-working, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them both to anyone. The sum charged was very reasonable, too, for the time and care taken.

The pointing work was done as requested, without damaging adjacent brickwork. Completed in reasonable time, and exactly to budget. Am very pleased with results, and would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

Dan repointed brickwork for me and I am extremely happy with the job. Dan is knowledgeable, punctual, efficient and very personable. He turned up when he said he would, he stuck to his quote and was so helpful with his suggestions about the best solution to my problem. His price was fair and reasonable. I highly recommend him - and I rarely say this about tradespeople!

I had a problematic rear wall at my house that had, in the past, been repaired with lots of unsightly cement patches. I wanted to install a new terrace, so wanted to make the wall look nicer, and asked Dan to quote for replacing the affected bricks. Dan gave excellent & honest advice - rather than replacing the bricks, which would be v expensive, he suggested that he 'colour in' the cement patches to help them blend in with the surrounding brickwork. He did this to a very high standard and I'm very happy with the result - both effective and cost-effective. Dan also re-pointed my chimney stack. All of the work he carried out was great, and the rear of my house looks much better as a result. Throughout, Dan was a real pleasure to work with - great communication, hardworking, on time, and completely trustworthy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others.

I never understood that pointing was a combination of skill and artistry and a discrete profession within the building trade. Dan patiently help my hand through the process of deciding which colours to use by painting several small areas with different mixes . In fact I never realised that there were different colours and finishes. Existing damaged and marked bricks were invisibly repaired to give a new appearance. The job revived a poorly constructed front entrance to give my house excellent kerb appeal and a very satisfied customer.

House Pointing

Dan and Paul did a fabulous job of pointing the front of our house and patching up bits at the side and back. In extremely inclement weather and with the ongoing Covid situation they kept on track with the work and produced a super result. Given the circumstances they were always extremely cheerful, professional and kept us updated at all times with the works. From what could have been a very dusty job, they kept mess to a minimum and cleaned up each evening. The final amount did not change from the amount quoted. This is the first job, in a long time, where we have had work done to the house and there has not been any issues (which is so refreshing in this day and age). We would highly recommend Evans Pointing Specialists.

Dan and his colleague Paul were absolutely fantastic. They repointed all the walls of our Victorian end-of-terrace house in lime mortar, and the result is outstanding. From the initial quote, to making test samples of different mixes, to finishing off additional bits once the scaffolding came down, they worked incredibly diligently and with real attention to detail. We couldn't be happier with the result and I would definitely recommend them to anyone. True perfectionists.

I contacted Dan after I saw all his 5 star reviews. Having now experienced his work, I can fully endorse them. He recently re-pointed our wall and I have only praise for the way he went about it. He clearly knows his craft. He was extremely professional, punctual, reasonably priced and tidied up at the end of each day. The finished job looks great.
