When does a house or property require Repointing?
It’s crucial that you can determine when it is time to repoint. The identifying process is very simple. When checking the wall, a good guide to check is to measure the depth against the height of the mortar. When the depth matches the height of the mortar gap, you’ll need repointing. You can also simply use your finger to test the pointing, simply dig a finger into the joints in the bricks and seeing if any mortar breaks away. You should try this test in multiple areas of both the back and front of the home.

How much does repointing cost in Oxfordshire?
Depending on the current condition and size of the brickwork, it usually cost somewhere between £20and£40 per metre-squared in Oxfordshire. Your property may require scaffolding and other access, this can increase the overall cost. However, repointing is well worth it. The pointing will likely last 50-100 years, so you won’t need to do it again in your lifetime!
You will avoid potentially expensive repairs that might be required if moisture enters through damages in the properties pointing work and add real value to your home or commercial building.
Lime Mortar Repointing
A large majority aged brick houses and walls in Oxfordshire were built with lime mortar and it’s necessary to keep this trend is imperative to the strength of these aged property or construction. A large number of Victorian homes may likely have been constructed with lime mortar, and not cement. So it’s crucial that cement is not used in repairs. When cement is used, the movement inherent in old homes will likely cause property damage.
