When does a home or building need Repointing?
It is important that you know how to identify when it is time to repoint your property. Checking your pointing is extremely easy. When reviewing your brickwork, a great way to go by is to measure the depth against the height of the mortar gap. As soon as the depth is bigger than the height of the mortar gap, it’s time to get repointing. You can also use your finger to test the mortar, try digging a finger into the joints in the brickwork and see if any mortar comes away. Try this in multiple areas of both the front and back of the home.
