Hatfield

Project Description

A couple in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, needed a company who could change the look of their property and run the project independently.

Brickwork at the front of the property was in two different colours and grades. The lower course had been injected with a damp course treatment, which left the bricks looking unsightly. The customer also asked us to remove the existing mock Tudor fascias to create a whole new look.
