Enquiry From An Impressed Neighbour

In 2015 we carried out extensive work on this property in South West London.

The work included structural repairs, render removal, paint removal and brick restoration comprising both brick refacing and brick tinting.  You can read more about that job here.

Last week we received the following in an email enquiry from a neighbour who lived opposite.  They had observed the work whilst it was being carried out and have seen the results every day over the past 18 months:
