Watercoating brickwork to safeguard against damp and ingress of rain

 I approached Glenn as he was working on a neighbours property and asked for an appraisal of my brickwork. He said that it did not need pointing, just some holes filling here and there and some waterproofing as the bricks are very absorbent. He gave me a quote that evening and was able to complete the work while we were away on holiday. We came back to find he had done a great job and even removed some paintwork and marks where ivy had grown up the house. We would recommend GMT; great work and goes the extra mile.

 I have been bricklaying for many years but yet to have used lime mortar, I messaged GMT Pointing asking for some advise and he couldn’t of been any more helpful if he tried, telling me the best products to buy form the best places, even asked me if I wanted to send over a video of me pointing the lime mortar he could give me some pointers. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy working day and personal time to give me help and advice. I can’t thank you enough!

Repointing a period property built in 1850

 Glenn repointed our 1850’s house and we honestly can’t thank him enough. He has done a wonderful job and given our home a new lease of life! At the outset Glenn took the time to talk through the process involved and the importance of using lime mortar and the correct mix. During the job he replaced numerous bricks which had blown due to being previously patched incorrectly with cement. Nothing was too much trouble, he took great pride in his work and ensured everywhere was kept clean and tidy. The finish is outstanding and we would highly recommend Glenn, he went above and beyond our expectations. He is a master of his trade and a pleasure to deal with.

Highly Recommend

 Great communication and workmanship. Well planned and expedited on time to schedule leaving a clean and tidy site after what is a messy trade. They have completely re-pointed the house using a high quality lime mortar mix rejuvenating the old stone property I live in. The property had been poorly maintained and pointed using cementitious mortar which was not allowing the house to breath. Highly recommend this business.

Chimney Stacks in Buckley

 xtremely helpful. Glen completed work on 2 chimney stacks, on my 1930’s house recently and did an extremely good job. He was very helpful in completing the work, even thought he had to do quite a lot more than was originally quoted for and the work was held up for some time, through no fault of his. He worked hard to get the job completed, at original costs, and was able to get other tradesman in to help, when necessary. Highly recommended.

 Absolutely brilliant! Consummate professional, reliable throughout the process, and incredibly knowledgeable. Has transformed our house. I would recommend without reservation. Even gave me a practical tutorial on pointing, Glenn is very skilled. Also took the time to get the right mix of lime and colour / type of sand.

Competitively priced and did additional work such as clearing gutters and fixing chimneys just because he was on scaffolding and could sort. Is an absolute hero.

Top Notch Company

 Glen had previously done work for us so when we discovered we had another brickwork problem we contacted him straight away. He is knows his stuff and is honest so you can trust what he says and does to remedy any problem. He came to our house and did the job quickly to prevent any further damage to the interior plaster. We are so grateful. We highly recommend Glen without any hesitation whatsoever and would always use him.

via Yell

Highly recommend for all pointing needs

 Highly recommended. Glenn at GMT is the epitome of customer service and a first class contractor.

I contacted Glenn following some poor workmanship by another company. From visiting site to inspecting and reporting on the work to providing recommendations and a fair quote for remediation works he cannot be faulted.

Glenn explained, in detail, and used evidence of previous work and his youtube videos to ensure I fully understood everything.

Glenn is one of the best tradesmen I have ever dealt with. I had many questions and he remained patient and answered every single one without hesitation.

Glenn has shown me all documents that we would perhaps take for granted as consumers. This includes his insurance and peace of mind that he is a member of the Guild of Master Craftsman and trading standards approved.

For all your pointing needs I would highly recommend Glenn. He is an honest man, reliable and fair who puts customers first. I wish I could find more people like Glenn.

 I've just had the bay-window at my bungalow repointed by GMT Pointing Specialists. Glenn is a true skilled craftsman of his trade, I'm thoroughly satisfied and pleased with all his work, he cleaned the brickwork and matched the new mortar on the repointing to the existing mortar perfectly. Glenn is a very tidy diligent and patient worker, he comprehensively answered all my questions and addressed my concerns perfectly. When the work was completed, everything was left in a good, sound, clean and tidy order, a very trustworthy, pleasant, friendly and obliging person to deal with who pulls out all stops to help his customers. It is without hesitation that I can highly recommend GMT Repointing Specialists who are very deservedly worthy of a 5 Star rating, a pleasure to deal with. *****

 Very impressed with the expertise and knowledge shown by GMT when re-pointing our 1920s house. Good communication and reliable, and Glenn took great care not to damage my plants that were growing very near to the working area! Highly recommended.


Pointing to external walls

 GMT did a first class job rebuilding and repointing our external walls. Workmanship is professional and and good value.


Great Job From GMT

 Great repointing job from Glenn of GMT. Very professional, he obviously takes great pride in his work and it shows. Would highly recommend.


Knowledgeable, trustworthy and honest

 We were in need of help and advice to repair damage to external brickwork. Contacted Glenn @ GMT who was quick to reply, help and give expert advice.

We sincerely and strongly urge anyone requiring any of the services that Glenn offers to appoint him even if there’s a wait for his professionalism and skill it’d be worth it.


  Glenn re-pointed the back of my terraced house, giving it a fresh lease of life and resolving issues I'd been having with rain water coming through cracks and gaps in the old mortar. An acid wash finished the job off well, and everything was left clean and tidy. It was a pleasure working with Glenn - I appreciated his advice beforehand and throughout the work, and his linking me with other professional contacts to deal with complimentary work on my guttering, fascias etc. Good value for money and overall well recommended

Water proofing of stone building

 Quality work carried out by a person who clearly knows his trade.


Excellent Work and Customer Service

 I contacted Glenn at GMT pointing after having a new window installed, which didn't fix water coming in. Glenn identified the problem a huge crack in the mortar above. He tested and fixed it straight away. Called him Sat and he was here Mon am. The quality of the work is excellent- neat and tidy and comes with a guarantee. Glenn even fixed another area that was weak above our back gate with no extra charge. A very professional job and reliable service. I would highly recommend this company and will be getting other work done in the future.


Choose GMT before anyone else !! A rose amongst thorns

 I recently had the good fortune to be put in touch with Glenn @ GMT. I was struggling to gain any advice or direction from anybody on work to be carried out on an older property, I reached out to Glenn for any help and he was quick to reply, help and give expert advice in any way that he could. At times you may cynically read reviews but I can say with 100% confidence that all the positive reviews I have read aren’t in any way hyped or exaggerated. Glenn epitomises all the positive attributes you’d hope, and rarely do, find in anybody carrying out work for you. Skill, knowledge, honesty and diligence. If you’re fortunate enough to contract GMT I’m positive you won’t be disappointed !!!!


An outstanding service

 An truly excellent service. Glenn Thomson restored our tired 19th century house to its original glory, with pointing of impeccable quality. He went above and beyond, was totally reliable, extremely hard working, meticulous and great to have around. We couldn't recommend him highly enough.



 The standard of work was excellent. Professional service throughout. Would gladly recommend to anyone.


Definitely recommended!

 You want someone who takes pride in what they do, look no further.

I’ve used GMT pointing twice and have been impressed on both occasions. His work is faultless, turned up to quote, gives a good price and carries out work when promised. He’s transformed the brickwork/pointing and replaced damaged bricks.

Definitely highly recommend.


Outstanding workmanship from a Master Tradesman

 I had Glenn come to my house in Greasby to renew the pointing on my 1938 lime laid house. Clearly a master of his trade, he takes great pride in his work and did a beautiful job restoring my property using his rare skills in lime pointing. The house looks like its just been built again! Glenn had no issues going above and beyond pointing on my home - he performed brick and masonry repairs, fixed my wall and even rehung my gate. Its good to see willingness and flexibility of seasoned professionals rather than the penny pinching laziness of todays tradesmen who say "Its not my job" to everything. Cleanup was excellent and again Glenn went above and beyond to ensure the house, drive and patio looked as it did before or better. He even cleaned out my drains where some dust had settled. Glenn was very polite and friendly to my family and a pleasure to have around for the 2 weeks. I HIGHLY recommend him for any pointing/masonry work if you want the best for your property. Good guys are rare.


Lime pointing on a listed building

 Glenn takes pride in his work,I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or use him again.he painstakingly hand picked a full house for us ,he wasn't allowed to use anything mechanical and only used a lime mortar as it was a listed building, we knew Glenn was the right man for the job as this is what he speciallies in, I was impressed with him all through the works,he even let me try a little bit of pointing to see how it's done,he's so friendly and polite, he tidied up and removed all the rubbish ,he even kept our neighbours informed when scaffolding were coming and going so not to inconvenience them ,thank you Glenn, we love it.



 I cannot recommend GMT pointing enough Glen went above and beyond with my water sealing explained everything he was doing very professional thanks very much again really happy


Water Seal and Re Pointing

 Glenn answered all of our questions, arrived on time and did a great job of re pointing and water sealing the back of our house. Would highly recommend GMT pointing.


Old House at Connah's Quay

 I contacted Glenn at GMT to do some exterior sealing of brickwork and renew facia board and some painting. From start to finish he was well organised and kept me informed at all stages.

He organised another firm to do the facia boards and painting.

Glenn went over the top and did extra work and did not charge for it which you do not find this all the time and I did not expect to not pay a bit extra.

I would not hesitate to contact GMT if an when I need any further work carried out.


Excellent work

 Glen worked tirelessly in some awful weather and has done a fabulous job of re-pointing our (old) walls. A very professional job and he himself is incredibly helpful and generous. I would highly recommend him to anyone.


A gem of a brickwork lime pointer

 I spent a lot of time trying to find a brickwork pointer who works with "old fashioned" lime.

Eventually I found Glenn. He came round to give an estimate when he said he would. There was a lead time before he could point my house, which suited me fine. Glenn liaised with the scaffolder to discuss the technical points of the scaffolding. He is a hard working guy who makes efforts to keep the neighbours onside. He worked through wind, cold and rain. It is a messy job but he cleaned up well. He also went to efforts to replace damaged bricks which improved the overall look of my house. I am well pleased with the job and would recommend his work to anybody.


First Class Face Lift

 My house was built in 1948 and was in need of a “face lift”.

I searched for a professional pointer in the local area and GMT Pointing Specialist stood out.

My property is detached 3 bedroom and took 3 weeks, which was extremely good going.

If you are wanting your property have a great look again, don’t bother with a Builder, GMT Pointing Specialist will get it right - professional and friendly, superb finish - glad I used GMT.


Highly Recommended

 Fantastic service from start to finish. Glenn is extremely professional, skilled, and hardworking. He has done a great job repointing the front of our house and even did some additional work at no extra cost. I would have no hesitation in recommending him as the quality of his work is excellent.


The Chapel

 Outstanding service from the second we spoke,turns up when he says he will, the standard of his work is is fantastic. He even took time out to show my wife and myself how to point. Glenn is a lovely guy and nothing is to much bother ,cant wait to have him back on our project. Thanks, Scott and Debbie.


Great Service, highly recommended

 Excellent, prompt and professional service from Glenn in dealing with a mortar and porous brick problem at my mother's house. Was a bit concerned finding a tradesman to do the work at my elderly mothers home. Glenn was great, did the work quickly,promptly and put my mother at ease. Went above and beyond what was expected and very understanding. Also helped out on another issue again in a prompt and efficient manner. Fair prices for a good job, do not hesitate to contact him.



 Glenn was professional, knowledgeable, skilled and friendly from the onset. Our repointing job on our stone house wasn't an easy one, but a fantastic job has been done.


Excellent and the best.

 Excellent work carried out. Clean and tidy. Very helpful. He has created an amazing transformation. I would highly recommend Glen to anybody. You won’t be disappointed.


Lime pointing of 1730s property

 I contacted Glenn from this company. He was professional from start to finish. Left our house clean and tidy everyday. No loud music playing no music at all which is a suprise in this day and age. I was also impressed with his attitude to payment, he didn't ask for cash, we paid into his buisness account. Our property was transformed. Thank you for your hard work. Jan and Peter.


Excellent work and attitude

 I highly recommend Glen and the work he does. He worked tirelessly through some of the worst weather we've seen in years, took on a big hard job and just got on with it. Highlighted any concerns and options as he went on, and has made our house more weather proof and significantly better to look at.

After finishing the job on a Friday he returned the following Monday to tidy up, clean, and generally remove as much evidence he'd been there as possible.

Glenn also took on additional little tasks as they appeared and helped me with some additional work I did on my roof, all without complaint, and all within the agreed price.


Highly recommend this company and totally satisfied with the whole experience.

 We would 100% recommend GMT Pointing to friends, family and anyone looking to have work carried out by a professional. Glenn has given us hope that there are tradespeople out there who are not out to rip you off, who arrive on time, and carryout the work in a time scale agreed and to the highest possible standard. Glenn took the time to explain exactly what work was required and how it would be carried out. We agreed a price which was competitive against other quotes. He arrived at the time and date agreed and carried out the work to a very high standard. He was very pleasant, willing to engage in conversation and able to answer any questions put to him. His work was outstanding and he did more than he needed to do with regard to tidying up. Glenn is not only an excellent tradesman but a genuinely nice person. Glenn knows his stuff and was extremely knowledgeable about each and every aspect of his trade which made us feel totally confident and at ease in getting a major job done.


GMT Pointing - I would use again and recommend them.

 Glenn was friendly, knowledgeable and professional in all dealings. He stuck to his quote, even doing a little extra where required. He worked hard, completing ahead of time leaving the property clean and tidy taking his waste with him.


Excellent repointing and weatherproofing

 Glenn recently completed repointing and weatherproofing on our home. He was both professional and friendly, advising us at all stages of the work. We were very happy with the outcome and would absolutely recommend this company.


 This is a fantastic company. Glenn's work was brilliant - he went beyond the call of duty for us - and he was always professional. His work has made a HUGE difference to our house! Can't recommend him enough.
