WHAT ARE THE STEPS IN REPOINTING BRICKWORK IN CHAPEL-EN-LE-FRITH?

It takes time to repoint a building and, depending on your property, can also involve working up high. The initial step for a repointing contractor will be to carry out an eyes-on survey of the property and the extent of the work that is required. This will allow them to supply you with an itemised quote for the repair and renovation. You should get two or three quotes and don't automatically assume cheapest is best.

If the surveyor who carried out the initial site survey was unable to view and inspect some hard to reach parts of your house, a ladder or even a scaffold could be necessary to carry out a second more thorough survey. This second, more stringent survey could expose different trouble spots that may have an impact on the first price quote. Additional work is likely to be required if your home in Chapel-En-le-Frith is more than 60 years old and has never been repointed previously.

Some protective shielding can be fixed to the outside of the scaffolding, as soon as it has been built. This helps to prevent any property damage and reduce any risk of injury to everyone in the immediate working area.

Wires and pipework will need to be removed or adjusted to enable access to the brickwork behind them. These will all be re-attached after the repointing work is complete.

Any pebble-dash, rendering, paint or other coverings will now need to be safely removed to enable the repointing team to access the brickwork and press ahead with their reparation work. The brickwork that's behind these outer coverings will be sanded and cleaned to make sure that the finish on your walls is uniform.

The brick joints are now raked out to remove the old, crumbling mortar and clean the spaces between the bricks. This painstaking process takes time because the joints need to be cleaned of any old mortar, debris and dust in order to establish a sound bonding surface for the new mortar to be applied to. Special attention is made around windows and doors since any movement in the brickwork may result in issues with their closing and opening.

One thing that should be avoided is the new mortar drying out too rapidly, and this can be prevented by dampening the walls. This slower drying time stops the mortar from becoming inflexible and cracking, which creates a weaker joint. When it is sufficiently dry it's time to clean off any excess mortar and smears from the adjacent brickwork. The walls are split into areas, and each will be repointed, left to dry, and then cleaned before the team move on to a new section.
