When will a home or property need Repointing?
It is essential that you have the knowledge to determine when you need to repoint your property. Checking your pointing is pretty easy. When reviewing the wall, a good guide to check is to measure the depth of the mortar against the height of the mortar. When the depth is bigger than the height of the mortar gap, you’ll probably require repointing. You can also use your finger to test the pointing, simply dig a finger into the joints in the bricks and seeing if the pointing comes away. Try this test in multiple areas of both the front and back of the property.

About Isles of Scilly
The Isles of Scilly (/ˈsɪli/; Cornish: Syllan or Enesek Syllan) are an archipelago off the south western tip of the Cornwall. One of the islands, St Agnes, is the most southerly point in both England and the United Kingdom, being over 4 miles (6.4 km) further south than the most southerly point of the British mainland at Lizard Point.
The population of all the islands at the 2011 census was 2,203. Scilly forms part of the ceremonial county of Cornwall, and some services are combined with those of Cornwall. However, since 1890, the islands have had a separate local authority. Since the passing of the Isles of Scilly Order 1930, this authority has had the status of a county council and today is known as the Council of the Isles of Scilly.
