Latest Project – A stitch in time………

This week it is a report from our contracts division.  That well known phrase “a stitch in time saves nine” is especially applicable to retaining wall alongside fast flowing water.  We have seen £1,500 repointing projects become £150,000 reconstruction jobs.

Recently we were commissioned by a long standing client to do some wall maintenance ahead of the winter, here are some of the results.  It is never going to look like a new wall, but a measure of integrity has been restored.

When budgets allow a complete repoint is probably on the cards, but now the wall looks like it will survive the winter.
