Repointing Bovingdon Hertfordshire (HP3)

It's simply a case of checking your brickwork visually. If you are able to spot an issue then you have an issue. In places such as on chimney stacks or under eaves it may be necessary to use a professional to check, but in most cases you should be able to see for yourself the physical signs of degradation.

You also need to think about the issues of safety that crumbling or defective mortar can cause. Mortar is the binding agent that holds the shape and structure together in any Bovingdon house, and if badly in poor condition can have an impact on the stability of a structure. If this is compromised, the structure can become unstable, which in the case of chimney stacks or higher buildings, can cause serious damage and be a risk to life.

It could be that crumbling or missing mortar is the result of damaged bricks. Any deteriorating bricks discovered during the survey by the repointing contractor will be repaired or replaced before any mortar repointing takes place.

Now the dusty work begins as the old, damaged mortar is taken out by raking and cleaning out the brick joints.

Any doors and windows will be paid extra care by the repointers to prevent any excess applications of mortar or distortions of the frames which could lead to problems with their closing and opening.
