It is simply a case of checking your brickwork visually. You've got a problem if you can spot a problem! It may be necessary to use an expert to inspect hard to reach places such as chimney stacks or under eaves, but in most buildings you should be able to spot any signs of deterioration fairly easily.

You've also got to consider the issues of safety that crumbling or damaged mortar could potentially cause. The integrity of any Brighton property is only as effective as its mortar and bricks. In homes with chimneys and higher structures, any weakness in the integrity of the building can have major consequences in respect to property damages and risk of harm.

It could be that eroding or missing mortar has been caused by damaged bricks. Any damaged bricks identified during the survey by the contractor will be repaired or replaced before any repointing takes place.

WHAT ARE THE STEPS IN REPOINTING BRICKWORK IN BRIGHTON?

Repointing is a lengthy process and can entail working up high, subject to your property type.

It is invariably safer to get quotes from different repointing contractors in Brighton and verify the levels of service offered between them.

A further site survey might be needed once you accept a price quote and may include the use of extending ladders, or perhaps even scaffolding, to get to out-of-reach areas of your property.

A good repointing company in Brighton will go over any issues found with your brickwork and agree the best options for remedial action before starting any actual physical work. There's every chance your repointing company will need a scaffold in order to have a sturdy platform whilst working on your home. An arrangement of protective sheeting or shielding should then be secured to the exterior of the scaffolding. This shielding should prevent any debris or mortar dust from harming your home, or neighbours properties, and also gives an extra layer of safety to prevent injuries to anybody that's passing by.

Pipework and wires might need to be adjusted or removed to enable easier access to the brickwork behind them. Once the project has been finished and all repointing work undertaken these cables and pipes will be secured back in position.

To enable the repointing contractors to access the affected brickwork, any rendering, paint or pebble-dash will now have to be removed before work can commence. The brickwork that is hiding behind these coverings will be sanded and cleaned to make sure that the finish on your walls is consistent.

Brick Repointing Near Brighton (BN1)

To help you decide on the ideal type of pointing for your walls, a reliable Brighton repointing company will be willing to display the different pointing styles (Tuck, Weather Struck, Flush or Recessed), by the creation of a test section on your wall. This test panel will allow you to see how each method compares to each other and also which fits the style of your property best.

Now the dusty work begins as the old, damaged mortar is removed by raking and scraping out the joints. This painstaking process can be pretty time consuming because the joints need to be cleaned of any dust, debris and old mortar in order to supply a sound bonding surface for the application of new mortar. The repointing team will be especially careful around doors, windows and openings where movement in the brickwork or an over application of mortar can result in difficulty in closing and opening them.

When the joints are clean, the walls will be damped down to stop the fresh mortar from drying out too quickly and ultimately cracking. This keeps the mortar flexible and allows it to dry at a gentler pace to prevent cracking, which can lead to a weak joint. When it has dried sufficiently the time has come to clean off any excess mortar and smears from the adjacent bricks. A wire brush can be used to clean the brickwork which have been finished before starting on the next part of the wall needing work.

If any lead flashing replacement, chimney repairs or brick replacement needs doing by the repointing company as part of the project, now is the time when these tasks will be undertaken.

Any paint, rendering or other wall coverings that you require will be re-applied once all the remedial repointing work has been completed. The cables and pipes will be reattached and the final stage of the project will be to take down the scaffolding and dispose of all debris and building waste.

A reliable Brighton repointing and brick repair company will provide you with a restoration that will last at least sixty years. All work should be provided with a warranty of at least 12 months and have construction industry credentials.

If a building contractor has accreditation or qualifications from bodies like the NHBC (National House-Building Council), the FMB (Federation of Master Builders) and the NFBC (National Federation of Building Contractors), you can be certain you're working with an experienced and reputable business. The Construction Skills Certification Scheme is now a requirement for all workers in the construction industry and they must be prepared to produce their CSCS card when requested to prove their competence to work on your house.
