Quite simply, you need to take a good look at the mortar and bricks of your external walls. Repointing is normally necessary if you can visually identify some problem areas. In most instances you will be able to see quite clearly any physical signs of deterioration, but in places that are remote or hidden, such as chimney stacks or under eaves; you may need to call on the services of a specialist to help you.

You've also got to consider the safety issues that crumbling or damaged mortar joints can cause. The mortar is the foundation of strength in your Bishopstoke property and is the "glue" that binds the structure and shape together. In houses with chimney stacks and higher structures, any weakness in the framework of the building can have major implications with regards to property damages and the risk of injury.

If bricks have been damaged or weakened over the years and are the main cause of the problems with your mortar they might have to be replaced. An experienced brick repointing company in Bishopstoke will quickly identify any sections that need possible replacement and offer a service to refurbish the brickwork at the same time as the repointing.

If the external brick walls of your Bishopstoke property have been painted or rendered in past times you could see patches that are prone to dampness or discoloured. If there are any signs of flaking, bubbling or other degradation to rendered and painted brickwork, it could suggest issues with the bricks or mortar allowing damp into the walls. The only effective way to figure out a problem of this kind is by employing a professional brickwork and repointing contractor who'll find the main cause behind the mortar damage. A decent repointing company in Bishopstoke can achieve this and help to keep your house in the best condition possible.


Repointing takes a fair amount of time to accomplish properly and will involve working at considerable height in many cases. A visual survey is the first step in the process and will ascertain the scope of remedial work that's required on your house. This will enable them to give you a quotation for the renovation and repair. Remember to always obtain two or three quotations and don't always assume the cheapest is the best option.

It could be that in the initial site survey there were some sections of your property that were inaccessible or out-of-reach and in such cases a second, more in depth survey may be needed. It's quite possible that this more thorough survey could expose further issues that could cause the first price quote to increase. The older the structure is, the more likely it will be necessary to repoint the mortar, and this is particularly true for those properties in Bishopstoke over sixty years old.

A decent repointing company in Bishopstoke will go over any issues found with your home and agree the most effective methods of repair before commencing any actual physical work.

Brick Repointing Near Bishopstoke (SO50)

If you've not yet settled upon a style of finish (Flush, Tuck, Weather Struck or Recessed pointing), or you wish to see how the various pointing methods appear on your home, a competent Bishopstoke repointing contractor will be able to produce a test section on your brickwork. This pointing test panel will enable you to see how each technique compares to each other and also which one matches the style of your property best.

The joints in the brickwork are now raked out to take away the old, crumbling mortar and clean the gaps between the bricks. This painstaking process takes time because the joints need to have all the debris, old mortar and dust removed in order to supply a sound bonding surface for the application of new mortar. The repointers will be particularly careful around doors, windows and openings where the movement of brickwork or an over application of mortar can result in difficulty in closing and opening them.

Once the joints are clean, the brickwork should be damped down to help stop the new mortar from drying out too rapidly and ultimately cracking. This helps establish a solid joint by keeping the mortar flexible and preventing cracks. When it has dried sufficiently the time has come to clean off any smears and excess mortar from the surrounding brickwork. A wire brush will be used to clean the areas that have been completed before starting on the next section of the wall requiring work.

It is possible that as the repointers are working they may find cracked brickwork that needs replacing, or maybe problems with lead flashing or a damaged chimney, and an experienced repointer will be ideally placed to complete such repairs as they go.

Tuckpointing Bishopstoke

What Exactly is Tuckpointing? Where brickwork is old or dilapidated, tuck pointing is a strategy for repointing crumbling and unstable mortar. To give the illusion that they are perfectly maintained, it is a technique which is used to aesthetically accentuate the appearance of walls.

First of all, the old, crumbling mortar is removed, and this is then replaced with a new colour-matched mortar mixture which replicates the colour of the brick or stone in the wall. Then to give the perception that the joints are neat and tidy, where in fact the joints may be irregular in width, a thin contrasting strip of mortar is inserted.

Especially when seen from a distance, the effect of tuck-pointing can be quite effective, and without carrying out any disruptive refurbishments, can vastly enhance the visual appearance of a wall. You can also access tuckpointing in Owlesbury, Durley Street, Droxford, West End, Colden Common, Townshill Park, Upham, Curdridge, Portswood, Eastleigh, Fair Oak, Chandlers Ford, Bishops Waltham, Fishers Pond, Horton Heath, Durley, and and of course in Bishopstoke.
