Repointing is a process that involves removing and replacing mortar between the bricks. The mortar is carefully removed to an approximate depth of 15-20mm, then replaced. The most popular joints used are weather struck or flush joint, both mortar mixes are lime based.
If the mortar between the bricks is crumbling or missing then you are open to water ingress which could lead to dampness. Pointing is the primary weather proofing to exterior buildings . If some areas of pointing are missing or weak we are able to carry out patch repointing.
