Mortar Pointing and Repointing…
Mortar pointing and repointing is carried out when the existing mortar joints breakdown and start to crumble causing holes to appear in the brickwork, this can lead to structural damage and cracking if left to progress.
The joints usually breakdown due to the weak lime stone mortar or exposed to extreme temperature levels or variations. The re-pointing process should involve the removal of all remaining lose mortar and cleared to a depth of 20mm and fitting of fresh mortar by injection or by trowel. The fresh mortar should finished to match the existing mortar joints.
This is necessary when the existing joints breakdown which can affect the structural integrity of your building.
Crumbling mortar can be removed and a new mix forced into the joints and finished flush with the surface, scribed or tuck-pointed.
