Latest Installer Project: Retrofitting X-Clad in Richmond, Surrey

The owner of this bungalow, Paul Gunn, wanted to refurbish the rear of his property as the original render finish was aged and cracked. He spoke to us about retrofitting X-Clad, our lightweight system which can be fixed directly to an existing masonry wall. As a result of his enquiry, Mr Gunn contacted approved installer ML Brickwork (Southern) to discuss his plans. We have been working with Matt Lear of ML Brickwork for 10 years and had no hesitation in recommending him. The owner wondered whether the project would be too small to be of interest, but for ML Brickwork, it’s not about the size of the project but about doing a good job. It took a team of three just two days to remove the render and install around 20m² of the 17mm thick X-Clad system. The cladding was faced with reclaim London style brick slips from the Classic Range and finished with light grey Europoint pointing mortar. The end result speaks for itself; the rear elevation of the property has been completely rejuvenated.

The home owner is thrilled with the results and speaks very highly of ML Brickwork,

“Matt and his crew are a fabulous ‘can do’ outfit which is a rare quality in this day and age where excuses for non-delivery seem to be the norm.

Having run a number of businesses prior to my retirement I am aware how important the customer facing people are, and in ML Brickwork your company certainly gains by their enthusiasm, good humour and advice.”

Mr Gunn is now planning to overclad the remainder of his house next year.
