I have a methodical, accurate approach to work and adhere to Health & Safety rules.
I will want to have an initial chat over the phone to discuss your requirements and then, arrange to meet in person to check the site (incl. any access issues) and any plans before advising on timescales and before providing any quotes.

Rebuilt garden wall
Kevin was great, he suggested ways to build the wall stronger and kept us up to date with the plans. Showed up when he said he would, completed the work in a day and came back and cleared all of the rubbish promptly. Quality of the final wall is great, would definitely recommend.
Kevin repointed the side of our house to help stop a leak around the bathroom window.
Kevin was very good and kept me updated regularly with his plans and potential dates to do the work. Kevin also provided some contacts that were able to assist with scaffolding etc. We were very happy with the standard of work done by KH Brickwork. There was one issue with the post job clean up but when I highlighted this to Kevin he had it rectified immediately. Would definitely use KH Brickwork again and would recommend Kevin.
Rebuilding of existing wall
We were very happy with the reconstruction of our boundary wall, blending in the original bricks with similar new bricks. Kevin's advice and expertise was helpful with the finished job looking better than we could have hoped for. The team were great, worked well and tidily.
Repair brick arches above windows and re-pointing
Kevin a repaired two brick arches above my windows, one of which was a complete re-build and also carried out re-pointing which required him to cut out the cement and replace it with a lime based mortar which was required for a house of this age. He did a fantastic job, constantly kept me informed of the work he was doing and checking in that I was happy with what he was doing and how it looked. He even came back the day after they finished and fixed my gate and some bricks it tore out the wall in the wind. I thoroughly recommend him.
Built a front garden wall
Fantastic work, quick turnaround from approval of quote to completion of job, went the extra mile to ensure we got the best product. Would definitely recommend
Bricklaying and repointing
Kevin impressed me with his knowledge and his honesty, acknowledging where things needed doing, but also saying where they didn't. He quoted for a day's work which took in all the repairs I asked for, plus anything else he spotted on the day. Kevin and colleague Guy worked solidly all day, overcame a couple of unexpected problems and even took on a couple of late requests. I'm very happy with the workmanship, but the mark of their pride in their work is that Kevin called me next day to check if an unexpected hailstorm caused damage while the mortar set. It hadn't - which sums up his work.
