When will a house or property need Repointing?
It’s crucial that you can pinpoint when you need to repoint. The process is pretty easy. When examining the wall, a good guide to check is to measure the depth against the height of the mortar. As soon as the depth is bigger than the height of the mortar filling, it’s time to get repointing. You can also simply use your finger to test the mortar, simply dig a finger into the joints between brickwork and see if any mortar breaks away. You should try this test in several areas of both the back and front of the house.
