Your Restoration Project Is Our Passion

“After leaving school in 1986 I applied for and was successful in securing an apprenticeship with a local brickwork company. I was taught, from the bottom upwards, the skills and methods used. In the period from 1987-1990 I attended Waltham Forest College on a weekly day release to obtain a recognised qualification in brickwork.

Upon completion of a three-year study I received 2 Distinctions and 1 Credit at City and Guilds Craft Standard in Brickwork Theory, Technical Drawing and Practical Methods. I found standard brickwork unchallenging and shortly after passing the City and Guilds Course I changed fields and began a new career in Building Restoration. I soon became fascinated, strived to perfect the many different methods used and I found my base grounding in brickwork to be very advantageous.

In the year 2000 I decided to found Finelay Construction and we have since, completed a multitude of projects in the field of Building Restoration. I still find this field of work hugely rewarding and there is still no better feeling than seeing a restoration project through from beginning to end.”

Adrian and Simon have done a great job renovating the front of our house. The old paintwork was removed and the brickwork was restored to its former glory. He was very meticulous in clearing up every day and made sure our neighbours were kept happy. Although we had to wait over a year for the work to be carried out it was worth the wait. I would highly recommend Adrian to anyone looking for brick restoration work.
My partner and I spent quite a long time finding the right partner for our renovations project. We spoke to about 4/5 people. Adrian and Simon came over and gave us confidence immediately – the first by the point that Adrian, the owner of the business would be on the tools on our job. The second, and this was the ‘tell tell’ sign was that Adrian was booked up for over a year. Other people said they could start in two weeks but we decided that the proof was in the pudding with everyone else wanting to book Adrian.Alas, a year went by and he and Simon have done a fantastic job. We could have done it cheaper but there’s trades that don’t have the quality and skillset that Adrian and Simon do – as they started the project, we were really grateful to have a team at the peak of their game who could offer us a superior product and the results speak for themselves.Adrian and Simon offer a premium, top of the range service which when you’re renovating, you want and I’d certainly recommend them – you’re in incredibly safe hands.Communication was perfect and the end result is amazing.We wish Adrian and Simon every success!
Adrian and the team were brilliant to work with restoring the front of our house. We had a clear and detailed quote outlining everything that had been discussed with the paint removal and brick restoration. We had some cracking in the bay which Adrian advised upon and rectified - no longer noticeable. The process was very easy, with superb communication and they were incredibly clean! We can’t recommend them enough!
Adrian did a fantastic job of restoring the front of our home. He successfully removed layers of paintwork covering our Victorian red brick terrace house and meticulously repaired any damaged brickwork. The house is unrecognisable to how it once looked and all the neighbours comment on how lovely it looks 🙂 Adrian is extremely knowledgeable in restoration, reliable and easy to work with. He's the best brick man in town! Looking forward to when we finish the rest of the front and the plinth with go back on...! Well worth every penny spent and so grateful for all his teams hard work.
Adrian worked on the house next door to us and I wanted to say how considerate and tidy he was. Adrian made sure everything was covered up in our front garden before he started then tidied up before he left. He was also kind enough to do a few quick fixes which was super kind of him. At the end of the job Adrian washed the front of our property down including clearing all our gutters out! The job Adrian did was fantastic as we have had the same work done to our property in the past, so as a neighbour I would highly recommend Finley Construction - a solid 10 from me!
Adrian and his team completely transformed the front of our house. The brick work and pointing is stunning and so many of our neighbours have stopped by since the work was done to compliment it. Adrian is a true perfectionist and master of his craft, he made recommendations on finishes to suit our property and kept us fully informed as we went along. He also introduced us to other tradesmen to help us with other aspects of our project, all of whom work to similarly exceptionally high standards too. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
