A decent repointing contractor or company in Cobham will discuss any issues found with your property and explore the most effective options for repair before beginning any work. Most buildings will need a scaffold to establish a secure platform from which to do the work. Once this has been erected then some kind of protective sheeting will be fixed in position. This protective sheeting will stop any debris or mortar dust from harming your property, or nearby properties, and is also a safety measure to help prevent injuries to anybody that is passing by.

Cabling and pipework might need to be removed or adjusted to enable access to the walls behind them. When the repointing work is completed all cables and pipes will be put back in their proper locations.

To enable the repointers to access the brickwork of your external walls, any rendering, pebble-dash or paint will now have to be removed before work can commence. When this has been removed the brickwork can be diligently sanded and cleaned to provide an even surface for work to begin.

Brick Repointing Near Cobham (KT11)

To help you choose the type of repointing finish to your walls, a reliable Cobham repointing contractor will be glad to demonstrate the different pointing designs (Recessed, Flush, Weather Struck or Tuck), by creating a test section on your wall. This small test panel will enable you to visualise how each design compares to each other and also which suits your style of house best.

The brick joints are now thoroughly raked out to take away the old, damaged mortar and clear the gaps between the bricks. This can be quite a laborious procedure where any debris, dust and old mortar has to be carefully cleaned out to provide a decent bonding surface for the new mortar. Special care is taken around windows and doors because any movement in the brickwork could lead to issues with their opening and closing.

To avoid the fresh mortar drying out too quickly, the brickwork will be dampened before the new pointing begins. This makes sure that the mortar remains flexible and allows it to dry out at a slower pace to prevent cracking and generating a weakened joint. Any excess mortar and smears that are left on the brickwork can be cleaned off once the mortar is thoroughly dry. The repointers will work on the brickwork in small sections, pointing and cleaning each one in turn before starting on a new patch.

At this point the need for any brick replacement, chimney repairs or lead flashing work will be undertaken by your contractor.
