Marske Brickwork repointing

In order to know what brickwork repointing it is, it helps to know why pointing is important when it comes to your roof.

The pointing is the mortar around the bricks that hold a structure together. While the bricks themselves can last hundreds of years, this is sadly not the case with the mortar which is why you sometimes need your brickwork repointing. 

This is important because if the mortar was harder than the bricks then this would mean the brickwork would erode sooner.

It is a lot more expensive to replace brickwork than it is to replace mortar, so you are better off investing in repointing sooner rather than having to pay for replacement brickwork later on.

Why is this important?

It is not always immediately obvious that your brickwork needs to be repointed. However, if you have noticed that your walls seem to have a bit more damp in them or your heating bills have gone up, these can be symptoms that your mortar needs replacing.

This is because if the brickwork is not pointed in the right way you can end up with more moisture in the walls and more heat escaping. Over time if this is not properly addressed your home inside can feel distinctly colder and a lot more damp.

What should I be on the lookout for?

A big indicator of whether or not you need to repoint brickwork is if you notice gaps in the mortar. If you see this, you should get in contact as soon as possible to prevent further damage.

Don’t do it yourself

Some people may attempt to do repointing themselves. The problem is that this job can take up a lot of time. Furthermore, people tend to use cement rather than lime mortar.

Aside from being less aesthetically neat and tidy, it also increases the risk of frost damage.

Aside from using better quality materials, it pays to use the services of certified professionals. This will reduce the risk of any damage and will give you the full long term benefits of professional brickwork repointing.
