  • Sheridan is a true artisan and perfectionist whose skills and workmanship which we believe are beyond peer have transformed two properties for us over the last 5 years.
    His delightful personality and sartorial elegance were added bonuses onsite.
    We have no hesitation in recommending the Tuck Shop - Traditional Tuckpointing.

  • Sheridan (The Tuck Shop) recently completed tuckpointing the facade of our 1910 semi-detached cottage. We were delighted with the results and impressed with his workmanship and his attention to detail. Sheridan provided a detailed quote, and took the time and trouble to explain what he was proposing and how it would be done. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sheridan for similar work.

  • We cannot speak highly enough of the work done on our house by Sheridan of “The Tuck Shop”. He is a meticulous craftsman, and painstakingly restored the façade of our two storey 1888 Victorian terrace, even transforming some modern red brick replacements to appear exactly like the original hand-mades, all done the way it was using traditional tools and materials. We have received many glowing comments from friends and passers-by.
