“The most difficult aspect of re-pointing is in matching the existing mortar colour & joint” says Company Director Nigel Graham.

“The most expensive is having to fix prior poor workmanship.”

Remember that you usually get what you pay for.  Poor repointing is obvious even to the untrained eye and adds difficulty and therefore time and expense to correct and have your home looking great again.
Mortar colors vary as much as brick colors, so matching the existing mortar of your home as closely as possible, is an art in itself and is key to a great end result.

Re-pointing is carried out when the existing mortar joints have broken down and started to crumble, causing holes in the brickwork which can lead to structural damage and cracking.

A combination of extreme weather conditions, excess moisture (often from sprinklers or watering systems) and a weak mortar mix causes masonry work and mortar to break down (fret) and fall out . Both bricks and mortar are subject to “fretting” or crumbling.
