The owner of this red brick tuck pointed Edwardian house in Bromley had successfully made an insurance claim for subsidence damage to his Porch. The insurers sent out a bricklayer to rebuild the Porch. Following the owner’s complaint to the insurers about the poor quality of the workmanship and lack of tuck pointing on the rebuilt Porch, the Georgian Brickwork team were asked to try and address the owners concerns, without resorting to rebuilding the wall again.
The slide show above illustrates the stages of remedial work undertaken by Charlie Reilly. Initially the bricks were thoroughly cleaned to remove mortar from the brick facework. As can be seen, this made an immediate improvement to the look of the bricks. Next a colour wash was applied to match the rebuilt wall with the original brickwork. In preparation for the Tuck Pointing, stopping was applied in between the bricks, after which the Tuck Point was applied.
