Repointing and replacing spalling bricks

Bill was helpful and communicative about the job and our needs to fix all immediate problem areas by repointing and replacing spalling bricks in our 100 yr old house. As well as diagnosing the problems he told us how to avoid more damage. He and his team were quick and thorough and we are happy with the result, particularly in matching the colour of both the mortar and the bricks where holes needed to be filled.

Cleaning bricks and tuckpointing

Making our house look awesome! If I could give them a 6 star rating I would. I was a little nervous about working on my house but they had fixed all of my neighbours homes and they looked great. Bill was really quick to reply and gave me really good advice about how to tackle the job. The people who did the job were really professional - the work took a couple of days and the job site was cleaned up each and every day. The finished product was even better than we expected.

Masonry restoration

I'm happy to recommend Victorian Restoration. My neighbors and I own a block of 6 1890 Victorian row houses - all but two have now had their fronts cleaned - showing off the warm orange colour of these soft porous bricks produced at a Greenwood brickworks. In addition to the cleaning, the fronts were repointed with honey-coloured mortar that made it difficult to these were anything other than well maintained cottages.

The rear of the houses also were repointed and patched as required. Victorian Restoration did such a good job, the fifth neighbor is planning on having the same work done next year.

Thanks Bill!

Brick cleaning and restoration - older home

We are thrilled with Bill's work cleaning and restoring the bricks on our older home. Our bricks had likely not been cleaned in over 50 years at least. After we called him, Bill came over quickly reviewed our home and provided honest feedback and a fair and honest quote. He was able to come in a couple of weeks after initial visit. Him and Tom were very through cleaning the bricks and ensuring the rest of the house and windows were covered to avoid any damage. Our bricks look beautiful now and our home looks restored to its original look! We would recommend Victorian Restoration to other home owners with older homes looking to restore the beauty of their exterior.

Stripping paint from brick, new exterior limestone window sills

We hired Bill (Victorian Restoration Company) to strip the paint from the brick on our home and to replace several exterior window sills with limestone. We were thrilled with the job that he did. The brick stripping was a messy job, involving paint stripper and a high pressure wash, but Bill did an excellent job protecting our home and garden and our neighbours' homes and gardens. He also did a superb job cleaning up while the work was being done and afterwards. The finished product - the stripped brick and replaced window sills - is topnotch. I recommend Victorian Restoration Company enthusiastically.

Outside brickwork , that was chipping and sagging on a 100 year old Victorian House

The work was done on time, efficiently and professionally. Time was spent explaining the job so that the owner understood what had to be done. The worker was diligent and cleaned up the site afterwards.

SERVICES
--Brick Cleaning Paint Removal-- Pressure washing with a mixture of our specially formulated biodegradable brick cleaning solution to remove atmospheric carbon and dirt stains from brick and stone surfaces without causing damage to existing surfaces, restoring brick and stone to its original beauty. --Brick Repair Tuck pointing-- The mortar joint plays a significant role in the structure and structural integrity of the wall. It holds the bricks together, it bears the compressive weight of the wall just as the bricks, and it keeps water out of the wall. It is also the weak link in the brick wall system because if water is allowed to get past the mortar and into the wall, brick failure may occur such as cracking or popping (spalling). We can completely restore mortar joints by grinding out all existing mortar joints and replacing with new or spot point where needed throughout the brick structure to fill up any holes and cracks to stop any further damage from occurring. Bricks replacement is a necessary maintenance procedure on any home, bricks are cut out and replaced with new or reclaimed brick to match existing shape colour texture and size.
