Honouring the past, embracing the future

Introducing Premier Pointing – Sydney’s experts in stone & brick pointing and restoration


Welcome to Premier Pointing’s first blog post. Today, marks a very exciting milestone as we reveal to you our brand new look and website. We hope you like it as much as we do!

Recently our team has undergone a few changes, therefore for our first blog, we thought you’d appreciate a little insight into who we are and where we’ve come from.

For more than 17 years your Premier Pointing partners have restored the brickwork of homes and heritage buildings all over Sydney and NSW. Our work has been synonymous with the highest standard of brick pointing and craftsmanship. This year, we came to realisation that by working as a the Premier Pointing team, we could provide the ultimate service in brick & stone restoration.

Just like the beautifully aged buildings we’ve restored over the past two decades – Premier Pointing has undergone a little restoration of it’s own. And it’s all to benefit you, our new and long-standing clients.

We’re very excited to introduce ourselves as Sydney’s brick pointing and stone restoration specialists. Yes, the name is new but the experience and expertise we provide remains second to none. 2015 was a year filled with changes, transitions (a little extra stress) but more importantly, new beginnings. We absolutely love what we do and can’t wait to continue restoring homes all over Sydney.

We’ve taken the development of our new team as an opportunity to revamp – creating a new name that we believe truly reflects our philosophy – respecting historical character whilst maintaining structural strength and safety.

So who are we? Your Premier Pointing partners are Roger Westlake, Neil O’Connor and Barry Taylor. Formerly a founding director of a mortar replacement company, Roger is a highly skilled craftsman, and has specialised in tuckpointing, brick pointing and brick restoration for more than two decades. Working alongside Roger for more than 15 years, both Barry and Neil are masters of their craft in brick pointing & restoration and are proud partners of Premier Pointing.

So what’s the Premier Pointing difference? You’ll not only be working with restoration experts that respect and understand the needs of older buildings and historical character, you can expect at least one of the Premier Pointing partners on every job! Your building is your most valuable asset, so why not choose a team of premium quality?

If you’re a proud homeowner looking to add value whilst maintaining your building’s integrity or your heritage building requires premium restoration – the Premier Pointing craftsman are experts in the industry and understand the intrinsic needs of your building.

The team here at Premier Pointing proudly stands by our experience and reputation within the industry; just take a look at our testimonials.  We hope you are excited about the changes just as much as we are.

We engaged Premier Pointing during November and December 2016 to repoint and repair the brickwork on our two strata buildings located in Naremburn. The remedial work completed was of an excellent quality. 

The project was completed on time and within the agreed budget that had been quoted.  

All Premier Pointing staff were professional and courteous and we found them excellent to deal with at all times during the course of the project. 

They also did an excellent job of keeping our premises clean and tidy at the end of each work day and did a great clean-up when the work was completed at the end of the two month contract period. 

In my experience, it is quite rare to find high quality tradespeople like Premier Pointing and we would happily recommend them to anyone.

Best regards

My 78 year old home at 1 Flora Street Mascot has just had extensive renovation of the external brickwork by "Premier Pointing Pty Ltd". The work involved rake out and repoint the brickwork on the front facade, left and right elevation and chimney. The gate pair and garden wall were also completely repaired. Other work was to change 6 lintels to right hand side.

I found the work done was of excellent quality. The craftsmen doing the job were exceedingly capable, efficient and courteous with great consideration for the residents as the work was being carried out. The administration staff were also excellent being efficient and available at all times.

The house at 1 Flora Street Mascot is heritage listed and therefore now of great heritage significance. The house was built in 1939 by F H Beenche for my great grandfather Ernest William Sheldrake. It was bought by my parents George Arthur Nilson and Nellie May Powditch (Jnr) and is now owned by myself Robert George Nilson and my wife Julie Yu Hua Fang (now four generations of owners).

The land was part of a grant acquired by Simon Lord in 1810 and in the 1850's was bought by Joseph Tunbridge. By 1928 Flora Street came into existence with houses first appearing in the 1930's. 3 Flora Street Mascot was the first house built on the eastern side of Flora Street in 1936 for my grand parents Charles William Swift Powditch and Nellie May Sheldrake. 1 Flora Street Mascot was built for my great grandfather Ernest William Sheldrake in 1939.   

Sincere thanks to "Premier Pointing".
