Brick Repairs and Tinting North London
Newman’s were contacted by a building contractor who were at the final stages of a 12 month refurbishment to a six storey office block near the Angel in North London.
Upon removal of tube and clip scaffolding there had been substantial damage to the brick work with the removal of the scaffold ties casing the face of the brick to shatter and crack leaving visible as well as structural damage.
We were required to offer a repair strategy that would restore the structural integrity of the brick and reinstating the original aesthetics of the brick.
Using an Acrylate resin the void in the brick formed by the drilling of the scaffold tie was filled offering a guaranteed solution to filling the void offering very high compressive and tensile strength. The face of the brick was repaired using Fosroc high strength concrete repair mortar and then tinted using specialist brick tinting techniques, offering a permanent repair.
Specialist access equipment was used to carry out the repairs with access being gained from a cradle and cherry picker operated by our trained staff.
We are increasingly being asked to carry out repairs of this nature for many refurbishment and new build contracts and if we can assist please do not hesitate to contact us.
