If you were walking through Glasgow City Center last week and you looked up, there was a good chance you would have seen some of our building maintenance team working at height. We were working on a scaffold platform on the side of a church in Glasgow performing some major stone repairs.
These older churches with their sandstone walls need to be monitored carefully as wet sandstone can easily begin to crumble if left neglected for too long.
It is the same situation for home owners across Glasgow who live in sandstone homes. All it takes is for a roof to begin leaking and before you know it, your sandstone wall is saturated in water leaving it more vulnerable to crumbling and collapsing.
If you are worried that your sandstone walls may be suffering from damage and need repaired, call on the leading building maintenance and stonework experts – Balmore.
Balmore carried out a whole range of works to the externals of the notable Grade I listed building, providing specification advice along the way. Works included stone consolidation, lighting protection, stone repairs, stone cleaning, pigeon protection and the like. Both the Building Surveyor and Planning Officer both commented specifically on their approach and workmanship.
The works were delivered both on time and on budget, whilst achieving an extremely high standard of finish. From a cost management perspective, I found their approach both amiable and non contractual, which is particularly refreshing during these times. I would have no hesitation in recommending Balmore on any external fagade contract or similar, I have since awarded them further contracts, and will be looking to introduce them to alternative Client bases of ours.

Balmore Specialists Contracts carried out a building project for us. The work included new roof on a Glasgow tenement in addition the gable end needed rendered. The work was done well, in the timescales promised and to a high standard.
I would have no reservations in recommending Balmore to any future customer.
