WHAT ARE THE STEPS IN REPOINTING BRICKWORK IN BALDERTON?

Repointing can be a lengthy process and may involve working up high, depending on your property type.

It is always much better to get price quotes from different repointing contractors in Balderton and verify the levels of service that each of them provides.

If you have not decided upon a finishing style (Tuck, Recessed, Weather Struck or Flush pointing), or you would like to see how the various pointing options look on your house, a decent Balderton repointing contractor will be glad to produce a test panel on your brickwork. This will allow you to visualise the final result and make sure you're satisfied with the finished product with regard to colour and style.

The next thing is to remove the old mortar by raking and cleaning out the joints in the brickwork. This painstaking process can be pretty time consuming as the joints need to be cleaned of any dust, debris and old mortar in order to supply a good bonding area for the new mortar to be stick to. Special care and attention is made around doors and windows because any movement in the brickwork may lead to issues with their opening and closing.

Once the joints are clean, the walls will be dampened to stop the new mortar from drying out too quickly and subsequently cracking. This keeps the mortar flexible and enables it to dry out at a gentler pace to prevent cracking and creating a weaker joint. During the mortar application there'll be smears and some excess mortar on the adjacent brickwork which can look untidy, but this will be removed once it's properly dried. The team will tackle the brickwork in small sections, cleaning each one as they go before moving on to a new patch.
