If the exterior walls of your Barrhead home have been painted or plastered over in past times you could see areas that are discoloured or prone to damp.

The only practical way to investigate a problem of this kind is by using a repointing and brickwork specialist who'll find the root cause behind the mortar damage. Any decent repointing business in Barrhead will be willing to perform this service and make certain that your house is safe and looking awesome.


Repointing can be a time consuming process and may entail working at considerable height, subject to the design of your property. To permit a repointing specialist to accurately assess the remedial work that is needed on your home they'll firstly have to carry out a visual survey. A survey is the only way in which a repointing contractor can supply an estimate for the volume of work that's required on your damaged brickwork. It is invariably best to get quotes from different repointing contractors in Barrhead and examine the levels of service offered between them.

If you've got hard to reach areas of your property that couldn't be checked out during the original on-site survey, a further inspection with extending ladders and possibly scaffolding could be needed. A quotation after the second survey may be higher thanks to problems identified by this more in depth inspection. If you've got an older home in Barrhead that's more than 60 years old, it's much more likely to require restorative work on repointing than a more modern structure.

Repointing Quotes Barrhead Scotland

Work can start once any problem areas have been detected and discussed with the property owner. It's likely that your repointing company will need a scaffold in order to have a stable working platform whilst doing the work on your property. An arrangement of protective shielding or sheeting should then be secured to the exterior of the scaffold. This protective sheeting should stop any mortar dust or other debris from harming your house, or nearby properties, and also gives an extra layer of safety to help prevent injuries to anybody that's passing by.

Any external cabling, such as TV or satellite, will be detached from the walls and pipes may be adjusted or removed to allow easier access to the brickwork behind. On completion of the project all cables and pipes will be put back into their proper positions.

Any pebble-dash, rendering, paint or other covering will now be safely removed to allow the repointing contractors to gain access to the bare walls and move along with their restorative work. After the removal of any coverings all brickwork is cleaned and sanded, this gives the repointing team a consistent surface to work on.

A reliable Barrhead repointing company will be willing to prepare a test panel on your brickwork in order to help you picture the various mortar finishes that are available, (Flush, Weather Struck, Recessed or Tuck pointing). This enables you to see how each would look on your brickwork and showcase the different colours and styles that are available.

The next thing is to remove the old mortar by raking and cleaning out the joints. This is an extremely time consuming process and involves the grinding or chipping away of old mortar and brushing away all the dust and loose debris to provide a good platform onto which to apply the new mortar. Special attention and care is taken around windows and doors as any movement in the brickwork could result in problems with their opening and closing.

Before fresh mortar is applied, the walls will be damped down to stop it from drying out too rapidly. This helps produce a strong joint by maintaining the flexilibility of the mortar and avoiding cracks. During the mortar application there'll be smears and some excess mortar on the surrounding brickwork which looks untidy, but this will be removed once it has dried out. The repointers will tackle the brickwork in sections, pointing and cleaning each one as they go along before moving on to a new patch.

It's quite possible that as the repointers are working they could find damaged bricks that need replacing, or perhaps a problem with a chimney or lead flashing, and an experienced repointer will be in a position to undertake such repair work as they progress.

Tuck Pointing Barrhead

Exactly What is Tuck Pointing? Tuck pointing is a method of repointing old and deteriorating brick or stonework where the mortar is crumbling and unstable. It's an approach that is used to aesthetically accentuate the look of walls to give the impression that they are well maintained.

A portion of the crumbling, old mortar is removed and replaced with a new coloured mortar which is close to the colour of the brick or stone out of which the wall is made. A thin contrasting line of lighter mortar is then "tucked" in to make it look like the joints are even and neat, where in fact the joints may be wide and irregular in width.

Particularly when observed from a distance, the effect of tuck-pointing can be quite eye-catching, and without carrying out any major renovations, can vastly improve the visual appearance of a wall. (Tags: Tuckpointing Barrhead, Tuck Pointing Barrhead, Tuckpointing Mortar Joints Barrhead).
