    Crowsnest Re-pointing

    Crowsnest Before 2015  Crowsnest After 2015

    Here are the 'before' and 'after' photos of a small section of the sandstone wall I am rebuilding with the mortar I have bought from you over the last three years!  This was the worst section and took me ages, it's not perfect but I am self-taught - the tips on your website were very helpful though.

    Lime Plastering Course

    I found the day most informative and enjoyable. It's a credit to you for getting so much information over to your pupils in such a short time so succinctly. I now cannot have ‘the wool pulled over my eyes’. I also now have the confidence to tackle lime plastering jobs even if only labouring to start with but without doubt the plaster will know that the mixes will be correct

    Your time spent was quite remarkable, you had enough time for everyone, answered all the questions made people think of themselves. I found it a very pleasant change for a professional person that you are to pass on so much information in the manner in which you did.

    I was in plastic moulding manufacturing / tool making and engineering but after a stint in hospital and two years convalescence I have now launched my second career. So instead of fighting metal, I now play with bricks and widgets.

    Thank you for lunch and for such a great day.

    Our Specialist Building Team; Quality Products

    We have recently completed a project, Prezzo Exeter, using your white lime wash. What a great product - it covers almost as good as some masonry paints that we have used. In the past we've completed quite a few projects for English Heritage and properties in conservation areas where we have used lime wash and none has been as good as yours.

    We also understand that you supplied that the lime render and plaster and that your guys applied it as well? And what a great job they did, very smooth and even and very little cracking - it made our job very easy.

    Once again thanks for the great product and workmanship we will be using your products for any future projects we can.
