It has been a pleasure dealing with your company especially Adrian who went out of his way to ensure we received our fire surrounds this week. He is a credit to your organisation with his timely communication and customer focussed attitude. I would most definitely recommend your company to my family and friends.

The fireplaces look fabulous!!

Just had some lovely feedback on our latest

resurfacing of a grey-green grit tennis court:

“the work has been carried out to our entire satisfaction – a really beautiful looking surface has been made, I think even better than the original….the two men who did the main part of the job were really excellent…they kept us informed of what they were doing and why.”

We have just finished refurbishment works at Cam and Dursley Tennis Club and received the following comments:

“thank you for the excellent work carried out refurbishing our tennis courts.  They are now looking very sprightly and have already been the subject of many approving comments.  We would be happy to recommend your company to other tennis clubs wishing to have similar work carried out.”

Needless to say we really appreciate the feedback and can also recommend Cam and Dursley Tennis Club as a friendly and approachable Tennis Club.

Moss on your Tennis Court

Qualgex Grimshaw

Spring is often the time when you take a good look at your tennis court and realise that you really need to tackle the moss, especially after all the wet weather we had last year.

Now is a good time to get prepared and we recommend using Qualgex but please remember that to ensure it works effectively you need to spray when the temperature is above 6 degrees Centigrade and rain is not imminent.

Please remember that it is unwise to use an iron (ferrous) based weed or moss killer on your tennis court.

The end result can be that your court becomes marked with rust stains which are very difficult to remove.

Nostalgia Building Supplies

We have just added handmade bricks to our Nostalgia Building Supplies shop.

Blending by hand and selective positioning in the firing kiln all helps to create a beautiful brick reflecting centuries of craftmanship.

They are available in both metric and imperial sizes and various colours.

Going Batty with Planning Permission

If you have had the pleasure of trying to cater for bats whilst trying to renovate, refurbish or rebuild then you may have hit a few snags.

Here is a beautifully simple solution to provide shared accomodation to hopefully keep you, the bats and the planners happy.

There are 3 designs available and they can be made to match a multitude of brick types.

For all those digger enthusiasts out there

Montpellier Walk Cheltenham

English: Caryatid, Montpellier One of 32 such ...

Grimshaws are just about to start working on repairs in Montpellier Walk, Cheltenham.

The properties in this unique shopping area are separated by 32 caryatids (figures based on the classical models on the Erechtheion in Athens).

Two date from 1840, made by the original London sculptor Rossi and the remainder were created by a local man from Tivoli Street.

I hasten to add we are not touching the caryatids, just the paving and road surface!
