When does a home or property need Repointing?
It’s crucial that you know how to pinpoint when you need to repoint. Checking you mortar is pretty easy. When examining your wall, a great guide 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 gap, you’ll probably require repointing. You should also use your finger to test the pointing, simply dig your finger into the joints in the brickwork and see if any mortar comes away. Try this test in different areas around the front and back of the home.

Old Lime Mortar Repointing
A large majority old red brick properties and walls in Swindon were originally built using lime mortar and the need to continue this trend is imperative to the well-being of a aged house or wall. For example, a many Victorian homes may likely have been built with lime mortar, not cement. So it’s crucial that cement isn’t used in repointing. If cement is used, the movement inherent in older homes can cause property damage.
