Render Removal Specialists London
Restoring the Incredible, Classic Look of Your London Home
If you would like render to be removed from your Georgian, Victorian or Edwardian property, keep in mind that this is a job strictly for a professional. Attempting render removal yourself can seriously risk inflicting damage to the underlying brickwork.
However, at Jigsaw Brickwork, we have suitably experienced professionals who can pay the attention to detail necessary for render removal in a way that minimises damage. If any damaged bricks are revealed underneath, we can match and replace them with reclaimed bricks.
We’ve been removing render and restoring the original brilliance of London properties for years, and our process is precise, safe, and effective. Using time-tested, traditional materials and experienced methods only, we are experts in efficient render removal.Book Site Survey
London Render Removal Service
Removing the Render
The project begins with us removing the render, a task performed with the utmost care to minimise any damage caused to the brickwork underneath in the process. Trying to remove render can pose various challenges, but we know how to overcome all of them.
Victorian properties should not feature any render on top of their brickwork. This not only blocks the breathability of each individual brick, but the house overall, as moisture becomes trapped behind the render. However, once the professional render removal is complete, the entire house will once again be able to breathe – as was intended on the day it was built.

Replacing or Repairing Damaged Bricks Underneath
After removing the render, the Jigsaw Brickwork restoration team will begin restoring the brickwork – and we are experts in restoring almost any type of brickwork around. The render may have originally been applied to cover certain defects like dirt, paint, or damaged bricks, and our restoration services are tailor made for removing dirt and graffiti, and repairing or replacing bricks.
Where our brick restoration experts can't repair any damaged bricks, we’ll replace them with reclaimed bricks of similar or matching appearance; for this reason, we offer a brick matching service. One of our render removal experts will take sections of your bricks to our trusted brick reclaim yard, and match it as closely as possible in order to complete your render removal project in the best possible style.

Lime Mortar Repointing
If your brick property was originally built in the Georgian, Victorian or Edwardian period, it likely consists of solid walls built with lime mortar. These properties must be treated very differently to newer houses with cement mortar and a cavity.
Without a cavity, older walls can't breathe unless lined with lime mortar - not, crucially, cement mortar. Hence, in order to keep damp problems at bay, we will repoint your old property's lime mortar, which might have visibly receded over the years. Our process is designed to reverse the impact that time has had on your home, keeping your property safer from harm, and looking astonishingly, classically good for the foreseeable future.
Our Render Removal Process
This task must only be handled by a professional, as well as slowly to limit damage to the brickwork.
Damaged Bricks Replaced
If detaching the render has left bricks damaged beyond repair, we can replace these before proceeding.
Bricks Cleaned and Restored
Taking account of the type of bricks on the property, we will carefully clean and restore them.
Lime Mortar Repointing
We can remove brick pointing before replacing it for the required absorbency between the bricks.
