When does a house or building need Repointing?
It’s essential that you have the knowledge to determine when you need to repoint. Identifying if you need repointing is very easy. When examining the brick, a great way to go by is to measure the depth of the mortar 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 simply use your finger to test the mortar, try digging your finger into the joints in the brickwork and see if any pointing breaks away. Try this test in different areas around the back and front of the home.

How much does repointing cost in Surrey?
Based on the current condition and size of the external brickwork, it usually cost somewhere between £20and£40 per metre-squared in Surrey. Your property could require scaffolding, this may add to the price. It isn’t cheap, but it’s well worth it. The repointing work should secure the property for 50-100 years, so you probably won’t have to do it again in your lifetime!
With repointing you will avoid expensive repairs that would be required if water gets in through voids in your pointing work and increase the overall value to your home or business property.
Old Lime Mortar Repointing
Some aged red brick houses and walls in Surrey were originally constructed using lime mortar and the need to keep this trend is imperative to the health of these aged property or construction. For example, a large number of Victorian buildings will probably have been built from lime mortar, not cement. It is essential that cement isn’t used in repointing. When cement is used, the movement inherent in old Victorian buildings will likely cause damage to bricks.

We don’t just do repointing, we also work in the conservation of listed properties, this service applies to both domestic and commercial constructions.

Surrey /ˈsʌri/ is a county in the South East England and is one of the home counties. It shares borders with Kent to the east, East Sussex to the south-east, West Sussex to the south, Hampshire to the west and south-west, and Berkshire to the north-west and Greater London to the north-east. The county town is Guildford.Surrey County Council sits outside its jurisdiction in Kingston upon Thames, a town which has been administered as part of Greater London since 1965. With a resident population of 1.1 million, Surrey is the most densely populated and third-most-populous county in the South East region.
Today, administrative Surrey is divided into eleven districts: Elmbridge, Epsom and Ewell, Guildford, Mole Valley, Reigate and Banstead, Runnymede, Spelthorne, Surrey Heath, Tandridge, Waverley, and Woking. Services such as roads, mineral extraction licensing, education, strategic waste and recycling infrastructure, birth, marriage, and death registration, and social and children’s services are administered by Surrey County Council. The London boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark, Wandsworth, and parts of Lewisham and Bromley were in Surrey until 1889. The boroughs of Croydon, Kingston upon Thames, Merton, Sutton and Richmond upon Thames south of the River Thames were part of Surrey until 1965, when they too were absorbed into Greater London. In the same year, the county was extended north of the Thames by the addition of Spelthorne, as a result of the dissolution of Middlesex. Due to this expansion, modern Surrey also borders on the London boroughs of Hillingdon, Hounslow, Richmond upon Thames, Kingston upon Thames, Sutton, Croydon and Bromley.
