I initially contacted Andrew to replace some brickwork and pointing to the gable end of our property. I have to say he has been most communicative and informative right from the start with regard to what he was going to do and gave excellent advice as to what what other items needed attention. Andrew has given us plenty of advice on what needed to be done regarding water ingress and he has installed cavity trays and replaced soffits and facias. The work carried out is to a high standard and I would have no hesitation in recommending Lancashire Brickwork.
Lancashire Brickwork removed 2 chimneys completely from roof to ground and made good the roof along with re-pointing the gable end and did extra work that cropped up without hesitation. Andrew is a lovely chap and very knowledgable. He gave great advice and kept me updated along the way. Would recommend and use again! Many thanks.
Lancashire Brickwork came to re-point our 18th century cottage in traditional lime mortar. We also had our chimney stack re-pointed and we had ventilation vents put in the roof. In addition, he applied Permagard, a waterproofing agent which lasts a good 30 years or so. Andrew obviously is very knowledgeable about his craft. Andrew was very communicative throughout and was able to offer advice and guidance regarding maintenance. We would highly recommend him for this type of work and we would be happy to use him again for future works we might need to carry out.
Lancashire Brickwork have done a first class job of repointing the stonework on our large gable end. They did several other small repairs for us which they included in the price. Their scaffolding contacts also made it very easy to set the job up. It was done to time and to price and we will be getting them back to do the front of the house next year.
Lancashire Brickwork re-pointed our gable end on our Victorian semi. I chose to go with Andy after speaking to him on the phone. He gave up a lot of his time and shared his knowledge before I'd even met him. I could tell he had years of experience behind him and so I booked him in. He didn't take long to get the scaffolding up and start the job. He was able to give the old brickwork a good finish that suited the type of brick, and managed to do it in good time for a very reasonable price. Andy is a very nice chap to deal with. He always let me know what was going on and offered advice. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
I hired Lancashire Brickwork to repoint my entire gable end. Very happy with the result. Andrew is a knowledgeable man and a very useful number to have saved on the phone.
Lancashire Brickwork re-pointed our 3-storey semi and did a range of other jobs to get us back to being water-tight and well maintained. Started with just re-pointing the front but we were so pleased with the work, reliability, flexibility and value that we extended it to the whole house and a wider range of tasks. What we've been looking for...someone we can trust to do work on the house. Good advice and good execution. Strongly recommended.

Lancashire Brickwork repointed the side of our house and the chimney breast. They gave us good advice on weatherproofing and reducing the amount of dust created by the job when we were asking for a quote. They worked safely and professionally during the week, and replaced some of the bricks which needed replacing without any additional charge. Actually the whole job worked out 100 pound cheaper than first quoted as it didnt require as much weatherproofing product as first thought. Very approachable and easy to talk to, they gave us regular updates of the work as it was progressing. I would use Lancashire Brickwork again next time my house needs any work doing.
I recommend Lancashire Brickwork very highly. I've no hesitation in having them back to do more work around the house. I've had damp interior wall problems on the exposed, sea facing side of my St. Annes house for ages, even after being re-pointed twice in the last 15 years. In October Lancashire Brickwork re-pointed and sealed the brickwork, replaced eroded bricks, installed new soffits and fascias and sealed the exposed side of my house. This winter the interior has been dry for the first time in years. Brilliant job. Thank you!
We used Lancashire Brickwork in February 2017 to do some pointing and brick repair work. They originally gave us the quote in October 2016 and arranged to do the work early 2017. They were on time and kept us well informed as to when they would be arriving. The job turned out to be quite messy as we found further things needed which previous builders had done incorrectly. Lancashire Brickwork were very helpful and knowledgeable and went that extra bit for us. They helped us with a chimney flu liner installation that we needed fitting for a woodburning stove. We had some large heavy old sandstone lintels to be removed also. The finished job looks lovely. Plus they fitted all new guttering too! Would recommend Lancashire Brickwork. Andy is very friendly and a good all round chap...not many of them these days.

Thank you for all your hard work on our house, I am happy for you to use this email as a reference and for anyone to come round and look at the work you have done. We appointed Lancashire Brickwork because out of everyone we contacted they took the time to explain everything to us, were very knowledgeable and gave their honest opinion. They kept us updated all the way through, answered all our questions and were very supportive. Jobs undertaken:
- Chimney partially rebuilt, re-pointed, flashing repaired and closed vents opened up with new pots and pepper pots.
- External air vents fitted to chimney breasts.
- House re-pointed.
- Front of house 'dropped' bricks re-aligned.
- Front and side of house wall ties replaced.
- Blown bricks replaced.
- Ridge tile replaced and others re-pointed.
- Slipped roof tiles put back in place.
- Removed and replaced some bricks so we could clean inside the cavity wall.

We recently had Lancashire Brickwork at our house to re-point the back and the gable end. Whilst they were carrying out these works, we showed them a few other jobs such as the guttering and the facias which they completed and even ended up repointing the rest of the house. The price was very reasonable. We were kept well informed of when they would be attending and they always turned up as promised. The work was to a very high standard and the house looks great. We have already recommended them to our friends whom they are now completing a job for.

Thank you for the recent work that you have completed for me. I found your work very satisfactory and was pleased about the way you approached the job. You advised on repairs that were not obvious to me but had an impact on the integrity of the building. I would certainly recommend you to anyone who wants pointing and brickwork repairs undertaking.
Excellent service despite awful weather. Lancashire Brickwork were fantastic and always kept us informed. Work was completed as soon as possible given the weather conditions and finished to a professional standard. Would thoroughly reccommend.
Highly recommend Lancashire Brickwork! They did a great job with our gable end. They were easy to contact and explained every element of the job before carrying out the work. Competitively priced and minimal fuss! Top tradesmen! Cheers.
I have recently had two of my walls repointed by Lancashire Brickwork and I was very happy with the result. They gave a very competitive quote and detailed all the work and materials involved. They kept me informed of progress on a daily basis and explained all the work being done. All the work was completed within the time frame I was given and it was very obvious from their work that they have many years experience and are very reliable. I would happily recommend their building services.
Following recent storms, our house sustained leaks through the lintels above 3 of our windows. Andrew respond immediately to my request to quote for the work needed. He communicated the issues and explained the solution to the problem. Within a short time he had obtained the materials for the repairs and carried them out to a high standard. Thanks Andrew!
