Pointing Work

The mortar that is used to construct a property can erode over time due to weather conditions such as rain, wind, and snow. Re-pointing is the process of renewing the external facing mortar between each brick or stone that the building is constructed from.

If the mortar between the bricks erodes too far this can lead to water ingress which in turn can lead to damp and damage to the structure itself if left unrepaired.

To re-point a property, first we match the colour and texture of the new mortar to the existing mortar used when the building was originally constructed, this keeps the original look of the building and so areas that are not requiring re-pointing don’t look out of place when the new mortar is applied. All the old loose mortar is carefully removed to a specific depth within the brick/stone work of the building, any areas of loose mortar beneath this depth are treated accordingly before the new mortar is applied and the re-pointing process is completed.

Re-pointing not only fixes problems with damp and water ingress it further protects the construction of the building from weathering and can also improve the appearance and final look of the property.
