When does a home or property require Repointing?
It’s essential that you can pinpoint when it is time to repoint your property. Checking you mortar is extremely simple. When examining the brickwork, a good guide to go by is to measure the depth of the mortar against the height of the mortar. As soon as the depth matches the height of the mortar filling, you’ll probably require repointing. You can also try using your finger to test the pointing, try digging a finger into a joint in the brickwork and see if the pointing breaks away. Try this test in different areas of both the back and front of the property.

Buckinghamshire (/ˈbʌkɪŋəmʃər/ or /-ʃɪər/), abbreviated Bucks, is a county in South East England which borders Greater London to the south east, Berkshire to the south, Oxfordshire to the west, Northamptonshire to the north, Bedfordshire to the north east and Hertfordshire to the east.
Buckinghamshire is one of the home counties and towns such as High Wycombe, Amersham, Chesham and the Chalfonts in the east and southeast of the county are parts of the London commuter belt, forming some of the most densely-populated parts of the county. Development in this region is restricted by the Metropolitan Green Belt. Other large settlements include the county town of Aylesbury, Marlow in the south near the Thames and Princes Risborough in the west near Oxford. Some areas without direct rail links to London, such as around the old county town of Buckingham and near Olney in the northeast, are much less populous. The largest town is Milton Keynes in the northeast, which with the surrounding area is administered as a unitary authority separately to the rest of Buckinghamshire. The remainder of the county is administered by Buckinghamshire County Council as a non-metropolitan county, and four district councils. In national elections, Buckinghamshire is considered a reliable supporter of the Conservative Party.
