Windsor Train Station.
The Brickwork here had been neglected for probably its life.
We cleaned the atmospheric (train engine) grime, paint spots and other peoples `patch` repointing repair work from the brick face, raked/cut back all of the mortar joints, re filled them with the appropriately colored base mortar(multiple) and applied the Tuck Pointing.
This also required us to dismantle the chimney brickwork, brick by brick, clean those bricks, rebuild the chimneys exactly as they were, re point and Tuck Point them
What do our customers say
City and Suburbs Bricklaying Pty Ltd (Trading as Mortar and Surface Restoration) were engaged by us to undertake the renovation work to the Tuck Pointing of the brickwork at Windsor and Prahran Railway Stations. This project has run for approximately 6 months and has just been completed.
The client was the Department of Transport via Connex Mainco joint venture, and all departments are very happy with the results. The stations were built in the late 1800's and were in poor condition, having been left with very little maintenance over the last 50 years. The Hawthorn bricks were still in reasonable condition but the mortar had been severely washed out in some places, leaving the Tuck Pointing virtually non existent.
Mark Tink and his crew were very professional in their approach, working long hours and producing work to a very high standard. The job entailed a number of variations and Mark was always approachable and was able to help us matching existing stonework along with some very significant retaining wall repairs.
I am more than happy to recommend Mark and his crew for similar projects, as Windsor and Prahran Stations are testament to their skills and are on view for anyone to see.
