When will a house or property need Repointing?
It’s important that you can determine when it is time to repoint your property. The identifying process is extremely simple. When checking the wall, a great way to check is to measure the depth of the mortar against the height of the mortar. 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, simply dig your finger into a joint in the brickwork and see if any pointing breaks away. You should try this test in multiple areas of both the back and front of the property.

Some aged brick homes and walls in Gloucestershire were originally built using lime mortar and the need to keep this trend is imperative to the strength of these aged house or wall. For example, a large number of Victorian homes will likely have been constructed with lime mortar, and not cement. It is crucial that cement is not used in repointing. If cement is used, the movement common in older properties can cause property damage.
