When will a house or property require Repointing?
It’s essential that you have the knowledge to determine when it is time to repoint. Checking your pointing is extremely easy. When examining the brickwork, a good way to check is to measure the depth of the mortar against the height of the mortar. As soon as the depth is bigger than the height of the mortar filling, you’ll probably require repointing. You can also try using your finger to test the pointing, simply dig your finger into the joints between brickwork and see if any pointing comes away. You should try this in different areas around the back and front of the property.
