Repointing

Why Repoint your house?

House repointing is the process of repairing the mortar between the bricks in a house. Over time, the mortar can deteriorate, crack, or become loose, which can cause structural problems with the house. Repointing involves removing the old mortar and replacing it with new mortar, which can help to strengthen the structure of the house and prevent further damage. It is important to have a professional do this work to ensure that it is done properly and that the new mortar is strong and durable.

Repointing can help to protect your investment in your home and ensure that it remains in good condition for many years to come.

Benefits Of House Repointing

Improved structural stability

As the mortar between the bricks deteriorates, it can cause the bricks to shift or become loose, which can weaken the structure of the house. Repointing helps to strengthen the mortar and keep the bricks securely in place, which can help to prevent serious structural problems.

Enhanced curb appeal

Repointing can improve the appearance of a house by giving the brickwork a fresh, clean look. This can increase the curb appeal of the property and potentially increase its value.

Increased energy efficiency

If the mortar in a house is damaged, it can allow air and moisture to enter the wall cavities, which can lead to drafts and moisture problems. Repointing helps to seal the gaps in the mortar, which can improve the energy efficiency of the house by reducing drafts and preventing moisture damage.

Reduced maintenance costs

Repointing can help to extend the life of a house by preventing further damage to the mortar and bricks. This can reduce the need for ongoing maintenance and repairs, which can save money in the long run.

Improved safety

Repointing can help to prevent accidents or injuries caused by loose bricks or unstable mortar. This can help to keep residents and visitors safe, and can also help to protect the house from potential damage.
