When will a house or building need Repointing?
It’s crucial that you have the knowledge to identify when it is time to repoint. Identifying if you need repointing is pretty simple. When examining your brick, a good guide to check is to measure the depth of the mortar against the height of the mortar gap. When 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, try digging a finger into a joint between brickwork and seeing if any mortar comes away. You should try this in several areas of both the front and back of the home.

Lime Mortar Repointing
A large majority old red brick homes and walls in Wokingham were originally constructed with lime mortar and it’s necessary to continue this building method is essential to the strength of a old property or construction. A many Victorian buildings may probably have been built with lime mortar, not cement. So it’s crucial that cement is not used in repointing. When cement is used, the movement inherent in old Victorian buildings will likely result in damage to the brickwork.
