Remedial Works to Gable, Front & Rear
This project consisted of the supply and install of new remedial wall ties, isolation of existing ties using clan sleeves and raking out and repointing. As with all projects Pringle Building Services Ltd carry out, it was our intention to complete these works in a timely manner to the highest possible standards. The project began with a phone call from YHN requesting that we carry out remedial works to one property, we agreed to survey the property and return an estimate by the end of the following day.
During the survey the issue with the property was clear. Due to the horizontal cracking in the bed joints of mortar it was apparent that the wall ties were failing and the mortar in beds and perp joints were degrading. In order to rectify the problem we located and removed the existing wall ties, allowing us to fit new mechanical wall ties, rake out the mortar beds and apply new mortar to give the property a much needed aesthetic uplift. Prior to our workmen leaving site the property was washed down and left clean and tidy. The property is now structurally sound, and the quality of work and quick turnaround satisfied both the client and the property owner.
It’s a sad fact that choosing the right builder is fraught with danger. Not so with this company.
They have excellent credentials and set the standard which all should strive to achieve. From the very pretty and very helpful office staff, fact-finding conversation with a company director to the lads on site-all displayed a vast knowledge and conducted themselves in a friendly yet totally professional manner.
My job entailed wall ties all round and complete re-pointing. The initial measuring up estimate to completion of works took only 3 days. The actual work took 2 days and the lads swept up afterwards on both days.
They are extremely easy to contact and in the very unlikely event of any problems, they follow up to ensure complete satisfaction. Don’t take any chances, get it right first time with this outstanding company.
