    In general, for how long does the colour last in pavers usually? Does it depend on the quality of the product? How can you keep the colour for longer? How can you add colour back to it when the colour begins to fade with time? Are there any specific products or methods I should considering using?

    Hi, A wall of exposed yellow bricks in my property is sprinkled with black pores, spread out as well as clustered. There's a hard whitish substance that seems to have come out of the pores to the surface. Please could you help me out with what this is and how best to remove or clean this

    How to mix mortar? Is this something that a DIY enthusiast should do and can I do it safely?

    Asked by Charles on 10th May 2021

    We are looking at having our wall rebuilt, our understanding is that for very damp areas / north facing that engineering bricks would be the most durable act like glass when water hits / sits on them. Current wall has facing bricks all blown through frost and are saturated black colour. What are the key differences please? Any advice welcome. Thanks

    Asked by Mr on 8th May 2021

    Hi, We are looking at houses and a couple in the home reports mention spalling brickwork. Is there anyway when we view a property to know how bad/deep the damage goes? Are there any warning signs we should look for? For example, one today had a section about 1m by 4m that had three bricks that were missing their fronts. Should we just assume it would be a complete replacement job? Can this affect the structural integrity of the house as well? Thank you!

    My highschool sent me to college just before lockdown and I completed my level one in bricklaying, I have the certificate from the college to prove it. I was wondering if anybody knows if I could be hired now or would I have to wait until I’m sixteen?

    Asked by James on 17th Mar 2021

    What can I do about bricks that contain surface debris? I’m talking about debris like moss, mould and dirt. Is this to be expected or should I look after this and clean it/remove the debris? If so, how can I go about this? Thanks.
