Masonry cleaning / paint removal : At The Tuck Shop we use a steam cleaning system and much care is taken with our aim in preserving existing work. Experience goes in to knowing how much cleaning is needed and what is a beautiful patina, we do all our own cleaning because we believe the finest result starts from day one.
Brick & stonework : We are City & Guilds and NVQ3 qualified with over 30 years masonry experience working on all kinds of decorative brick & stonework from The Memorial Gates at Buckingham Palace to The Rippon Lea estate in Victoria and so many in between.
All styles of repointing.
Undersetting - rising damp/salt : undersetting (damp course replacement) is a process in which the removal of damp and salt effected masonry/mortar, inserting a new damp course and to rebuild using sound materials, this in our opinion is the only way to fix damp salt issues once eliminating the source of the problem.
