What is mortar repointing?
Mortar is the material that sits between the individual bricks of a wall and structurally holds all the bricks together. Mortar today is modernly made from a cement-like substance. In earlier times, a lime substance was used to hold bricks together. Over the years, the lime mortar tends to break down more easily.
Mortar repointing is the preparation and filling of decayed mortar joints and gaps in between the bricks in a wall. This operation is one that demands a high level of skill from a specially trained tradesman. Poor quality mortar pointing can cause further damage to your wall and may also look like a very obvious repair, which can decrease the value of your property.
The difference between a skilled professional versus a handyman is that the end result shouldn’t be a noticeable repair; it should just look like there was no problem in the first place.
When does a building need repointing?
Mortar pointing is required when the joints have eroded to a depth greater than the width. If you notice signs of mortar damage, it should be repointed to prevent further issues and problems.
Mortar damage is caused by weathering and decay, creating gaps in between the bricks of a wall.
Repointing your property is a particularly important part of maintaining and protecting your brickwork. Failing to replace mortar when it starts to fret away can lead to severe structural and moisture issues.
