When does a home or building need Repointing?
It’s essential that you can determine when it is time to repoint. The process is pretty simple. When reviewing your wall, a great way to check is to measure the depth of the mortar against the height of the mortar gap. As soon as the depth is bigger than the height of the mortar gap, you’ll probably require repointing. You can also try using your finger to test the mortar, simply dig a finger into the joints in the bricks and see if the mortar breaks away. Try this in multiple areas of both the front and back of the property.
