When will a home or building require Repointing?
It is crucial that you can determine when it is time to repoint. The process is pretty simple. When checking your wall, a good way to go by is to measure the depth against the height of the mortar gap. When the depth is bigger than the height of the mortar filling, you’ll probably require repointing. You can also simply use your finger to test the mortar, simply dig a finger into the joints in the brickwork and see if the pointing breaks away. You should try this test in several areas around the back and front of the home.

What is the cost of repointing in Hampshire?
Based on the condition and size of the external brickwork, repointing should cost somewhere between £20and£40 per metre-squared in Hampshire. You might require scaffolding, this can increase the overall price. However, it’s well worth it. The repointing work will likely secure the property for over 50 years, so you probably won’t need to repoint again
With repointing you will likely evert expensive repairs that would be needed if moisture gets in through cracks in your pointing work and add real value to your house or business property.
Old Lime Mortar Repointing
Many aged brick buildings and walls in Hampshire were originally built with lime mortar and the need to continue this building method is fundamental to the health of these aged house or construction. A many Victorian homes will likely have been constructed with lime mortar, and not cement. So it’s crucial that cement is not used in repointing. If cement is used, the movement inherent in old buildings can cause property damage.

Hampshire (/ˈhæmpʃər/, /ˈhæmpʃɪər/ ( listen); abbreviated Hants)[a] is a county on the southern coast of England in the United Kingdom. The county town of Hampshire is Winchester, the former capital city of England. Hampshire is the most populous ceremonial county in the United Kingdom (excluding the metropolitan counties) with almost half of the county’s population living within the South Hampshire conurbation which includes the cities of Southampton and Portsmouth. The larger South Hampshire metropolitan area has a population of 1,547,000. Hampshire is notable for housing the birthplaces of the Royal Navy, British Army, and Royal Air Force. It is bordered by Dorset to the west, Wiltshire to the north-west, Berkshire to the north, Surrey to the north-east, and West Sussex to the east. The southern boundary is the coastline of the English Channel and the Solent, facing the Isle of Wight.
Hampshire is the largest county in South East England and remains the third largest shire county in the United Kingdom despite losing more land than any other English county in all contemporary boundary changes. At its greatest size in 1890, Hampshire was the fifth-largest county in England. It now has an overall area of 3,700 km2 (1,400 sq mi), and measures about 86 km (53 mi) east–west and 76 km (47 mi) north–south.
