Re-instating of Victorian Bay window, and restoration of front of house
Customer Service
Quality
Value
Keith and Ben oversaw a big project at our property, re-instating a Victorian bay window which had been completely removed in the 60s. This involved rebuilding the bay from scratch to match the others on the street, commissioning stone masons to match exactly the designs of the period, replacing all windows to the front of the house and cleaning/repointing all brickwork. Also they completely renovated the front garden, building a new London stock brick wall with York stone coping stones, laid a victorian mosaic path, and put down reclaimed York stone flagstones. This was a huge project and we struggled to find people who had the skills and confidence to oversee everything. From the outset Ben and Keith made us feel that they could manage the project and that proved to be the case. The quality of their work is excellent and they were also a pleasure to have in the house, we missed them after they were gone to be honest. There may well be slicker and bigger contractors out there, but the personable way Ben and Keith handled us throughout the project was so valued and the end result looks absolutely great. All work was completed on agreed budget. We can't recommend them highly enough.

Honest advice and excellent work

We contacted Keith and Ben after reading the reviews here and are very glad we did. We thought a lot of our terraced house needed repointing, but when they came to inspect they said most of it was in good condition and only needed patching. They also noticed that one of our gutters was too short, potentially damaging the brickwork. We also wanted repairs done to several cracked stone windowsills and to have our patio repointed. Gary and Sean did most of the work and did so meticulously, finishing it all in three days. We are delighted with the results, which included a new gutter and redoing some previous repair work that wasn't up to their high standards. Keith, Ben, Sean and Gary were all very pleasant to deal with, and as well as doing a great job of work, did a fantastic job clearing up afterwards.

We had Keith, Ben, Gary and Sean working on our house, doing extensive repointing as well as removing a defective chimney stack. We were extremely impressed with their knowledge and skills, they were fully versed in the appropriate techniques and materials for conversation of old victorian houses like ours. When we got quotes from other builders they had various concerns of 'this could go wrong', 'that could go wrong', but with Keith and team, their attitude was much more refreshing. They were clear on what the challenges could be, but had the attitude of just knuckling down and getting the job done. I would highly recommend them for any brickwork, repointing jobs big or small. These proper skills are hard to come by and if I learnt anything, it's that people who have learnt these skills over decades really know their stuff.

Quick Advice
I had to make a journey from Oxfordshire to London to visit my property and Keith was able to meet me at my required time, though I understand he was busy. No work needed on this occasion but Keith gave me his advice freely and seems knowledgeable.

Rebuild pier supporting garden gate

Keith and his mate completed the rebuilding and strengthening of a brick pier partly displaced by the roots of a holly tree to a very high standard and in less than the allotted time, and on budget. They left everything neat and tidy both overnight and upon completion. They were a pleasure to deal with, and my neighbours commented unasked on how friendly and polite they were. They were helpful and communication was the optimum.

Keith's guys rebuilt a small brick wall and sorted out the walls on either side of the steps up to my front door. This involved removing the old, blown render, filling in holes, fixing metal strengthening on the outside corners and re-rendering. They also spotted 2 loose bricks and a crack in another place which I had overlooked and repaired them for me without asking. They were unfailingly punctual, good humoured and professional. They tidied up at the end of each working day and the bags of rubble were promptly removed. Excellent professional workmanship and good value for money.

Keith and Ben repointed the walls and chimney stacks on our Edwardian terrace house. They were very reliable and the work was completed quickly to a really high and professional standard. They also did additional small jobs like repairing render and re-sealing external door. They left everything tidy. Would definitely recommend them and would use them again.

My 6-foot high garden wall had a crack extending from top to bottom. On the basis of a photo, Keith provided a very reasonable quote. Once he was here and the vegetation was cleared away, further significant cracks were revealed which Keith dealt with for a very modest increase on the original quote. The workmanship was excellent. Keith matched the original bricks and on completion, it is extremely difficult to see where the repairs have been made. The site was left clean. This is the second time I have used Keith and I recommend him without reservation.
