It is crucial that you can pinpoint when it is time to repoint. Checking your pointing is pretty simple. When examining your brick, a great way to go by is to measure the depth of the mortar against the height of the mortar. When the depth matches the height of the mortar filling, it’s time to get repointing. You can also simply use your finger to test the pointing, try digging a finger into a joint in the bricks and see if the mortar breaks away. Try this in multiple areas of both the front and back of the house.
