Client Testimonials

We're super proud to be so highly rated by our customers.

  • Ian Wallace

    Professional quality work, arrived on time and cleaned up afterwards. Replaced a rusted lintel, repaired limestone cracks and fixed multiple cracks in 2 retaining walls in one day. Highly recommend Ashley and the team.

  • Tim Massey

    Professional. Reliable. Reasonable. Nikolai and Ashley were skilled, generous with knowledge and advice and worked to a high standard. They showed up on time and were easy to deal with. They diagnosed a long standing wall crack problem, replaced a rusted out lintel and repaired sections of a house wall for me and also advised about and repaired sections of a brick boundary wall around my 1930s residence. Their quotes were also competitive. Highly recommend.

  • Carolynne McCauley

    The lintels above two windows along the back of my brick house were rusting badly causing cracks in the masonry. Timeless Restorations replaced the two lintels and they also repaired some wide cracks that were developing in the masonry to the front brick wall of my house. They clearly explained the causes of the problems and what was required to rectify them, their quote was very reasonable and I’m very happy with the finished work.

  • Rod Ron

    Ash and Nik have completed 2 jobs on my house.
    1) repair of cracked walls.
    2) repair of mortar.
    I am very pleased with their professional knowledge and skills that combine to complete the work on time to an excellent standard and to budget. Their attitude towards their work and their customers is so refreshing. IMO I have no hesitation in recommending their services.

  • Jeffrey Kemp

    Needed some cracks in an internal wall pinned and plastered. Job was done well, on time, on budget, and cleaned up afterwards. So nice to not be staring at those cracks anymore.

  • What is Helifix Crack Stitching?

    Helifix Crack Stitching is a unique system used to repair cracked masonry. It can be installed in a range of building materials, including bricks, concrete, and stone. It’s a simple yet effective system that stabilises your structure, helping it withstand movement that naturally occurs over time. If you’re looking for a permanent fix, a stainless steel HeliBar is expertly inserted with HeliBond grout to repair existing damage. Because Helifix Crack Stitching is designed to stabilise your walls, it reduces the likelihood of new cracks forming.

  • How do you use Helifix Crack Stitching?

    Helifix Crack Stitching has a wide range of uses. It can be installed in most masonry repair projects, including exterior walls, corners, brick archways, and window frames. Our experienced tradespeople will choose a HeliBond beam that is the right diameter and length for the job. Slots are cut around the crack and the area is cleaned. We carefully place the HeliBars inside the wall and seal with HeliBond grout. It can take up to three days for exposed HeliBond to cure.

  • Do HeliBars make a difference?

    Cracks can occur for different reasons, such as poor workmanship, soil movement, and age. If there’s an underlying cause, it may be impacting the structural integrity of your property and it’s important to speak to a professional. Regardless of the cause, cracks can get worse over time. For example, if you don’t make brickwork crack repairs, you may end up with loose bricks. By installing HeliBars you can save your building from further damage. They can make a significant difference, offering strength and durability. HeliBars are made from stainless steel, so they’ll stand the test of time.

  • How much does Helifix Crack Repair cost?

    The cost of our Helifix Crack Repair service does vary between jobs. The size of the crack, materials, and accessibility can all contribute to the final price. However, it’s a cost-effective solution and can save you money in the long run. As a permanent repair, you can avoid having to knock down and replace walls in the future. Remember, we offer a free, no-obligation quote.

  • Is Helifix an effective solution?

    If you have vertical or horizontal cracks in your masonry, Helifix Crack Stitching is an effective solution. When it’s installed correctly, you can expect long-term results.
