Brick repointing is the process of renewing and repairing the existing pointing ( the visible shaped joint between the bricks). Repointing restores the visual and physical integrity of the masonry and can in turn increase the value of your property.
The pointing on your building can be damaged and eroded by overtime weathering and cyclic expansion and contraction. It can break the bond between the bricks and the mortar whereby the mortar will crumble and disintegrate creating voids between bricks. This situation disrupts the natural water cycle (evaporation of moisture from brickwork leading to further erosion).
Repointing is essential for maintaining, protecting, and conserving brick and stone buildings. Repointing doesn’t just maintain the structural integrity of your home but stops the brickwork from looking like a patchwork quilt and protecting the asset value!
Brickwork repointing can also prevent leaks and dampness. No one likes a damp wall, and repointing can help prevent these problems from occurring.
Another important benefit in having brickwork repointed is the fact that further repointing may not be necessary for 50 or 60 years. A repointing job, well done, can leave your brickwork looking flawless providing positive aesthetic effects on your property for decades. Let our specialists at Spectrum help you out!
A brick repointing service demands a degree of precision and hence the importance that appropriate tools in the hands of a highly skilled team is essential when carrying out this type of work - much like the teams here at Spectrum. Our expertise allows us to remove and replace damaged mortar with great care. You’re in safe hands.
The process is very complex involving the removal of old mortar and matching the replacement mortar in the original style, colour and consistency. You really want the outcome to be perfectly matched and seamless and our team strives to do this every time.
We can offer the repoint service alone or as a part of a larger refurbishment project; let’s get your brick work looking Spectrum approved!
