Repointing

There are several types of pointing:

Repointing

Over time the cement and mortar between the bricks of your home or building can crack, crumble or just simply wear away. When this happens, the chances of water getting between the cracks and gaps increases. This can mean a variety of issues and problems for you and your home.

Repointing is a process, that involves grinding/routing out the old mortar and replacing it with new mortar. Old mortar will need to be cleared out to a depth of around 12mm to make the new mortar effective, and while it can be applied in small areas that have been particularly affected by water damage, in general it will need to be done to an entire wall, as mortar will tend to deteriorate at a similar rate.

The work undertaken will be sympathetic with the character of the building and the finished product will have your building looking like its former self again!
