About Brick Talk Live

A Yorkshire man talking about what he loves doing best… or second best! Get to know Alan Pettingale talking about the differences between masonry restoration in the UK and US… and whatever else crosses his mind along the way.

You can expect solid information about restoration on commercial and historic buildings, using a drone to observe what can’t be seen from the ground. Alan also enjoys reviewing new tools and toys of the trade. Grab a drink and settle down to enjoy him talk with a few friends who love this stuff as well!
