When will a house or property require Repointing?
It is crucial that you know how to identify when you need to repoint. The identifying process is extremely easy. When examining your brickwork, a great guide to check is to measure the depth against the height of the mortar. When the depth is bigger than the height of the mortar gap, you’ll need repointing. You should also try using your finger to test the pointing, simply dig a finger into a joint between brickwork and see if the pointing breaks away. Try this in different areas of both the front and back of the house.
