Old Lime Mortar Repointing Warwickshire
Many old red brick homes and walls in Warwickshire were originally built using lime mortar and it’s necessary to keep this trend is imperative to the well-being of a aged property or wall. A many Victorian buildings may likely have been constructed with lime mortar, not cement. So it’s crucial that cement isn’t used in repointing. When cement is used, the movement inherent in old homes will likely cause property damage (this is also an important aspect of church and cathedral restoration)

What Is Repointing?
“Pointing” is the visible outside face of mortar, they appear between brickwork on the outside surface of the wall. “Re-pointing” (also known as Pointing Up) is the restoration of pointing. Repointing may be required after it has been lost because of age. After time, weather damage and decay can result in voids in the mortar joints between brickwork and stone. This will let water to enter, potentially resulting in significant damage and dangerous damp.
When does a house or building need Repointing?
It is essential that you know how to determine when you need to repoint. Checking you mortar is pretty simple. When checking the brickwork, a good way to go by is to measure the depth against the height of the mortar. As soon as the depth is bigger than the height of the mortar gap, you’ll probably require repointing. You should also simply use your finger to test the mortar, simply dig your finger into a joint in the bricks and seeing if the pointing breaks away. Try this in multiple areas around the back and front of the property.
