repointing and refacing exterior brickwork

Postby pete and lauren » Tue Nov 13, 2007 8:17 pm

We have just bought a small Victorian terrace house and are not happy with the paintwork on the exterior. We want to know how much we'd have to get done to it ie repointing and refacing the bricks to restore the bricks to their original appearance (yellow brick). Can anybody advise?
