When does a home or building need Repointing?
It’s crucial that you have the knowledge to identify when it is time to repoint. The process is pretty simple. When reviewing the wall, a great way to check is to measure the depth against the height of the mortar gap. As soon as the depth matches the height of the mortar filling, it’s time to get repointing. You can also try using your finger to test the mortar, simply dig a finger into a joint between bricks and see if any pointing comes away. You should try this test in different areas around the back and front of the home.

What is the cost of repointing in Wales?
Based on the condition and size of the external brickwork, it should cost between £20-£40 per metre-squared in Wales. You could need scaffolding, this may add to the price. It isn’t cheap, but repointing is worth it. The pointing will likely last over 50 years, so you won’t need to do it again
With repointing you will likely avoid expensive repair works that might be needed if water penetrates through damages in the properties walls and add real value to your home or business building.
Old Lime Mortar Repointing
Some aged brick houses and walls in Wales were originally built with lime mortar and it’s necessary to keep this trend is essential to the health of a aged property or construction. A many Victorian properties will probably have been constructed from lime mortar, not cement. So it’s crucial that cement isn’t used in repointing. When cement is used, the movement inherent in old buildings can result in damage to the brickwork.

We don’t just do repointing, we also work in the restoration of listed buildings, this applies to both residential and commercial buildings.
