Brick Repairs Using Brick Repair Mortar
When your London home was built, it was designed specifically to be composed of certain materials, hence the striking visual appeal of older properties. However, over time some houses may have had repointing carried out using cement based mortar, which has caused the bricks to spall and the faces to fall off.
The Jigsaw Brickwork brick repair team can remove any damaged sections of the brick and carefully rebuild it brick with stone repair mortar. A small section of your brick will be sent off to the lab, and similar coloured brick repair mortar is then made up to use on your damaged bricks. This product is only ever made using lime mortar, which makes it breathable, equally soft, porous and will become part of the original brick. Jigsaw brickwork always use traditional methods and materials for brick repairs.

Brick Repairs Using Helifix Bars
In some instances, we may decide that your property requires some additional support. In such scenarios, we may use super-strong Helifix bars to reinforce cracked or damaged masonry in your exterior walls and support your home over time.
There are numerous reasons why bricks can become damaged and cracks appear on the property. Often, ground movement can lead to brickwork rubbing against mortar – and, if the mortar used is inadequate, cracks can begin to appear. Our experience in stonemasonry will help us identify when Helifix bars are required, and our team will ensure they are installed in the most appropriate positions without damaging the integrity of your property.
