Repointing is a lengthy process and can entail working at height, subject to the style of your property. To enable a repointing contractor to accurately assess the repair work that's required on your property they'll first have to undertake a visual survey. A survey is the only way in which a repointing company can supply an accurate quote for the level of work required on your brickwork. Remember to always obtain more than one price quote and don't always assume cheapest is best.

A second site survey could be needed when you accept a quotation and could include the use of extending ladders, or even a scaffold, to get to inaccessible parts of your home. A quotation after the follow-up survey might be higher due to problems identified in this more in depth inspection. If you've got an older home in Banbury that is more than 60 years old, it's much more likely to require restorative repointing work than a more modern property.
