When will a home or building require Repointing?
It is essential that you have the knowledge to determine when you need to repoint. The identifying process is pretty simple. When examining the wall, a great guide to check is to measure the depth of the mortar against the height of the mortar gap. As soon as 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, simply dig a finger into a joint between bricks and seeing if any mortar breaks away. Try this test in several areas around the back and front of the home.
