Professional Brick Restoration
If you’re wondering “What is brick restoration?”’ you’re certainly not alone. You may also be wondering how brick restoration works and whether or not you can restore your bricks to their former glory yourself.
To be frank, brick restoration isn’t something that should be taken lightly. Getting it wrong by doing it yourself can cost you much more money in the long run.
Bricks on walls of houses and properties are exposed to general weathering, build-up of dirt and air pollution. Due to this, the quality and durability of these bricks can suffer, if left untreated. Brick restoration represents the perfect solution to have your bricks looking as good as new!

How Does Brick Restoration Work?
The key to successful brick restoration lies in first carefully considering the unique requirements of the property in question. London has no shortage of different types of residential and commercial architecture, with literally thousands of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian properties populating its streets.
Not to mention, many more thousands of modern homes and contemporary dwellings.
Hence, the brick restoration process begins with a detailed inspection of the property and its brickwork. Only then will it be possible to determine the appropriate course of action to restore its visual appeal and protective properties.
A typical brick restoration project may include one or more of the following:
• Professional cleaning of the brickwork to remove stains
• Removal and replacement of broken bricks
• The precision repair of cracks and splits in the brickwork
• Pointing and repointing where mortar is damaged or missing
• Application of weather proofing products to protect from future damage
• Tinting bricks and stones to match the surrounding structure
Brickpoint London has over 75 years’ experience – what we don’t know about brick restoration and repointing isn’t worth knowing! Our long-term experience and commitment to quality means you can rest assured that all brick restoration workmanship will keep your property pristine and protected indefinitely.

Expert Brick Repairs
In many instances, it is possible to go about brick restoration by simply repairing the damage and addressing discoloration of the existing bricks. This typically involves carefully removing the damaged or decaying parts of the bricks and the surrounding pointing, in order to then be replaced with specialist materials and compounds.
After which, the whole area can be treated to maximise weather proofing and ensuring long-lasting protection for your home.
Bespoke Brick Replacements
If it is necessary to replace any bricks outright, we’ll source the products and materials required to ensure a seamless fit with the surrounding structure. By the time we’re finished, the area we’ve been working on will be 100% indistinguishable from the rest of the wall. After conducting an inspection of the area to be restored, we’ll help you choose the most cost-effective approach to restoring its visual appeal and protective properties.
Can I Restore Brickwork Myself?
While it’s technically possible to repair brickwork as a DIY job, it isn’t necessarily recommended. A few reasons why we advise thinking twice about attempting the job manually are:
• It can be extremely challenging to replace damaged and broken bricks/pointing with products that flawlessly match their surroundings.
• If you use the wrong materials or adhesive compounds, it could compromise the structural integrity of your walls.
• Likewise, using the wrong products to clean or weatherproof your brickwork could have a negative impact on its protective properties.
• Buying all of the equipment and supplies needed to go about the job in the first place could cost you more than hiring help.
• When you take on a brickwork project yourself, there are no guarantees you’ll be happy with the results and nor do you benefit from a warranty.
