It is important that you can determine when it is time to repoint. Checking your pointing is extremely simple. When examining your brick, a good guide to check is to measure the depth of the mortar against the height of the mortar. When the depth is bigger than the height of the mortar filling, you’ll probably require repointing. You should also simply use your finger to test the pointing, try digging a finger into a joint between brickwork and see if the mortar breaks away. You should try this in several areas of both the front and back of the house.
