Macbar has a significant involvement in more specialist repairs. Our Property Maintenance remit includes external hard landscaping, foundations and retaining walls, fencing and structural modifications. We engage and liaise with a small team of Architects and Structural Engineers to ensure that we can coordinate projects from conception to completion with minimal disruption to clients.
We undertake refurbishment and repair using Intercromex and Lithomex from St Astier. Sandstone quoins, stones and mullions can be brought back up to authentic appearance, without losing the surface texture or permeable qualities of the original stonework.
We are approved applicators of Linotol, a more cost effective sandstone type building fabric coating, which can be readily applied to cement rendered structures. We are an approved applicator for this Veitchi patented system.
The removal of aged cast iron/steel box gutters can be avoided by the use of a Plygene butyl rubber lining. These lining are hot air welded on site, and can be a cost-effective alternative to gutter replacement, especially where used in the vicinity of an asbestos cement valley gutter arrangement.
