The cement that is used in our work today is very strong, in contrast to the cement and mortar that was used 100 years ago, which contains more lime than today’s product. This is to the advantage of new buildings and refurbishment projects, as the masonry work lasts much longer.
When carrying out a refurbishment project, it is important that our experts choose materials that match the extant materials in the building. Due to subterranean movements, which can easily affect foundation walls, there will always be a need for rehabilitation at various times. HG makes sure that the jobs done today last for as long a time as possible.
With an insurance project, the customer first gets in touch with their insurance company. Every insurance company has a loss adjuster that will assess the damage, and then contact craftspeople. When an HG company is contacted regarding an insurance case, we assess the damage and agree on a price with the loss adjuster. It’s important to HG to be able to offer a competitive price, but quality and previous work are important in determining why our companies are chosen to carry out the restoration work. The customer always deals with their insurance company.
