When does a house or building require Repointing?
It’s important that you know how to pinpoint when you need to repoint. Checking you mortar is extremely easy. When reviewing the brickwork, a good way to go by is to measure the depth against the height of the mortar gap. When the depth matches the height of the mortar gap, it’s time to get repointing. You should also simply use your finger to test the mortar, try digging your finger into a joint in the bricks and see if any pointing comes away. You should try this in several areas around the front and back of the property.

When cement is used, the movement inherent in old homes will likely result in property damage.
