When does a house or building need Repointing?
It is essential that you have the knowledge to pinpoint when you need to repoint your property. Checking your pointing is extremely simple. When checking your brick, a great guide to check is to measure the depth against the height of the mortar. As soon as the depth is bigger than the height of the mortar gap, you’ll probably require repointing. You should also try using your finger to test the pointing, try digging your finger into the joints between brickwork and seeing if any pointing breaks away. Try this in several areas of both the front and back of the home.

How much does repointing cost in Poole?
Based on the condition and quality and size of your brickwork, repointing usually cost somewhere between £20-£40 per metre-squared in Poole. You could require scaffolding and other access, this may increase the overall cost. It isn’t cheap, but it’s well worth it. New pointing will likely last over 50 years, so you probably won’t need to repoint again
You will likely avoid expensive repair works that would be required if moisture gets in through voids in your walls and add real value to your home or commercial property.
Lime Mortar Repointing
Many old brick houses and walls in Poole were built with lime mortar and the need to keep this trend is imperative to the well-being of these old property or construction. A large number of Victorian homes may probably have been constructed with lime mortar, not cement. It is crucial that cement is not used in repointing. When cement is used, the movement inherent in old properties can cause damage to the brickwork.

We don’t just do repointing, we also work in the restoration of listed buildings, this applies to both residential and commercial projects.
