Brickwork Pointing is a key element of any brickwork construction. Sloppy pointing will stain the brickwork and make the building look dishevelled, but more importantly, it could render your property useless against atmospheric conditions. Gaps in the pointing are a breeding ground for water to enter and damp to set in, but also for heat to leak out. It can even attract insects as a potential nesting site. Make sure that you get the professional pointing and brickwork service that is trusted by countless people in Preston.
People automatically assume that when you say 'brickwork' that that means new construction on a large scale, but that's not the case. Brickwork repointing is done on existing structures whose mortar has perished over time. There's no need to tear down the building, it just needs a little TLC in the form of repointing! We will remove the old mortar and add in the new, giving the property in Preston a new lease of life and making it robust against the elements once more.

Brickwork repairs are an ideal fix if the brickwork isn’t damaged badly enough to warrant being replaced completely. Skimming over a crack in a wall or replacing masonry that has perished is far cheaper and faster than re-doing the whole thing.
Brickwork restoration can involve anything from sandblasting and power washing to remove built-up grime and dirt, to applying a sealant layer to protect it from the weather, insects and dirt. It instantly makes the building look like a new-build and will stay looking that way for years to come.
Cavity wall tie replacement involves replacing the metal pins that are used to join the internal and external walls during the building’s original construction. They can help to stop subsidence and strengthen the whole building but can corrode over time. You'll know if your cavity wall tie has failed because you’ll see large horizontal cracks in the wall or the wall will be bulging. If you see this, don’t leave it - call us as soon as you can to fix the problem. Once the cavity wall tie has been replaced then the structure will be sturdy again for a long time.
Wall tie isolating means making sure that a damaged wall tie doesn’t do any more load-bearing and continue to cause damage to the interior and exterior walls. This will only be done once a replacement cavity wall tie has been put in place to take the strain of the damaged one. For more information or advice on wall tie replacement and isolation, contact our team of expert brick workers in Preston today.
Although in today’s world most chimneys are capped off and are there purely for decorative purposes, they can cause a lot of damage if they are left to fall into a state of disrepair. Chimney pointing and repairs are essential maintenance for your home and they don’t take that long to complete. If the existing mortar has perished and needs replacing then don’t leave it - especially for the wintertime. Call Ellendale Developments and we can have your chimney repaired, repointed and looking like new in no time at all.
Cracked walls are usually the cause of subsidence, or the house ‘settling down’ after its initial construction. This is common in both new and old houses and is usually very easy to repair. Internal cracks might be solvable with a new coat of paint, replacing the plasterboard or applying a top skim of plaster (all of which, Ellendale Developments can provide). If the cracks are external then we will conduct a thorough investigation into the cause and report on our findings, including what we think would best solve the issue. We are a reputable local professional pointing and brickwork service with years of combined experience and many successful projects to our name, so you can trust that we’ll get to the root of the problem and get it fixed in Preston, quickly, safely and cleanly.
