Brick Laying & Plastering

All aspects off brickwork and bricklaying undertaken from garden wall to new build brick works for extensions and out buildings. New works can be built to match existing surroundings with bricks sourced to match and approved prior to laying with mortar.

Joint sizes and mortar can be matched with surrounding brickwork. Some walls can also be built with concrete blocks – this option is cheaper as blocks can be laid faster due to size.

Internal and external rendering from sand &cement, bonding, browning and finishing to match surrounding areas.

Internal plastering is made up of two coats of plaster (also known as wet plastering or two-coat). First coat applied is normally leveled and finished off with top coat to achieve smooth surface, which once dry is ready for decorating. Advantage off this type of plaster is that as well as being fire-proof it can also retain heat and sound.

External plastering is known as rendering (sand and cement mix) which can be applied onto most masonry. This is applied in two coats consisting of scratch and top coat. The top coat can be smoothed off or pebble dashed depending on surrounding structure. Smooth coats can also be left natural once sealed with clear sealant, or painted.
