Be sure to visit Salisbury where you will find the fantastic cathedral and a great visitor centre, also have a look at Old Sarum. Don’t miss out on Wiltshire’s other historic towns such as Devizes, Malmesbury or Trowbridge, where you will find lots to see.

Repointing Brickwork

Filed under: Services,United Kingdom — Tags: , , — needahand @ 12:54 am

Repointing Brickwork – When weathering and rot have made your brickwork look untidy and unsafe, you might need to call on a bricklayer or repointing expert to put the job right and make your brickwork look like new. Make sure you get someone who knows what they are doing because it is not a job to be taken lightly, the mortar need to match the old mortar and the joints need to be profiled correctly to avoid future weathering. You should not attempt to do this yourself or bring in a handyman type person who is not qualified in the skills of bricklaying. When you contact a bricklayer, try to get photos of brickwork and repointing that they have previously done so that you can check the quality of their work. Hopefully you should have your tatty brickwork looking pristine again in no time.

Paving Driveways and Patios – A great way to improve the overall look of your property (the outside areas at least) is to put in a proper driveway in one of the many available materials. These days block paving is getting very popular and though you would think this is more expensive than concrete of asphalt, it is actually quite economical. That’s not to say that it is cheap, because installing a driveway is not something to be done lightly, though it is an investment and adds value to your home. There are many advantages to having a driveway installed on your property including increasing the value of your property, giving a good first impression, better security for your vehicles, lower insurance premiums and greater safety for your family. The people to call, unless you are going to build your own driveway, are the best local driveway pavers that you can find.
