When will a house or property need Repointing?
It’s important that you can pinpoint when you need to repoint. The process is very simple. When examining the brick, a good way to check is to measure the depth of the mortar against the height of the mortar. As soon as the depth matches the height of the mortar gap, it’s time to get repointing. You can also try using your finger to test the mortar, try digging a finger into the joints in the brickwork and see if any pointing comes away. Try this in different areas of both the back and front of the house.

About Windsor and Maidenhead
The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead is a Royal Borough of Berkshire, in South East England. It is home to Windsor Castle, Eton College, Legoland Windsor and Ascot Racecourse.
The borough was formed on 1 April 1974 as a non-metropolitan district of Berkshire, under the Local Government Act 1972, from parts of the former administrative counties of Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. From Berkshire came the boroughs of Maidenhead and Windsor, and the rural districts of Cookham and Windsor, and from Buckinghamshire came the Eton urban district, and the parishes of Datchet, Horton and Wraysbury from the rural district of Eton. It inherited royal borough status from Windsor, the site of Windsor Castle.
