Simply put, you must examine your outside walls and check for any damage. If you find damaged areas or sections that look different to the rest of the building, you may want to get in touch with a local repointing contractor for further investigation. It may be better to bring in an expert to examine hard to reach and remote places such as chimney stacks or under eaves, however in the majority of properties you should be able to see any signs of degradation fairly easily.

Defective mortar doesn't just look horrible, it can cause questions of safety as well. The structural integrity of any Cotgrave property is only as good as its mortar and bricks. In higher structures and homes with chimneys, any weakness in the framework of the dwelling can have severe consequences with regards to property damages and risk of harm.

If you are renovating an older property or your mortar has been neglected over the years, you may also have to replace brickwork that's been weakened or damaged. A local Cotgrave repointing contractor will repair any damaged brickwork before completing the mortar repointing to ensure the best possible finish to your property.

Repointing Brickwork Cotgrave UK (0115)

Quite a few Cotgrave properties in the past had their exterior brick walls painted or rendered with plaster to help shield the brickwork. Any bubbling, discolouration or peeling of paint or plaster could signify a deterioration of either mortar or bricks beneath the surface. Investigation of this problem, by a repointing specialist is the only practical way to ensure that the deterioration doesn't spread further and lead to structural issues as time goes on. A decent repointing company in Cotgrave can achieve this and help keep your property in the best condition possible.


It takes time to repoint a building and, depending on the design of your home, can also entail working up high. The very first thing that a repointing specialist will perform is a visual inspection to evaluate the damage and requirements to your property. A thorough inspection is the best way by which a repointing specialist can supply an itemised quotation for the level of work that is needed on your damaged brickwork. It is invariably better to get quotations from different repointing contractors in Cotgrave and study the levels of service that each of them provides.

If you have inaccessible sections of your home that couldn't be assessed in the original site survey, a further inspection with ladders and maybe scaffolding may be needed. It could be that this more thorough survey might uncover further issues that could increase the original estimate. If your property in Cotgrave is more than 60 years old and has never undergone repointing then it is very likely to require extra work than a more current dwelling.

Reparation work can commence once the problem areas have been detected and discussed with the property owner. Most properties will need to have scaffolding erected to establish a secure platform from which to do the work. When this is up then some sort of protective shielding will be fixed in place. This sheeting will stop any debris or mortar dust from damaging your home, or neighbours properties, and also adds an extra layer of safety to help prevent injuries to anybody that is passing by.

All pipes, cables and conduits which are fixed to the wall will be removed or their position adjusted to allow access to the brickwork behind them. Once the project has been completed and all remedial action carried out these pipes and cables will be put back in position.

Any rendering, pebble-dash, paint or other coverings will now have to be safely removed to enable the repointers to access the brickwork and move along with their remedial work. After removal of any coverings all of the brickwork is sanded and cleaned, this gives the repointing team a uniform surface to work with.

Brick Repointing Near Cotgrave (NG12)

To help you pick out the ideal style of pointing for your walls, a trustworthy Cotgrave repointing company will be glad to demonstrate the different pointing designs (Recessed, Weather Struck, Tuck or Flush), by creating a test panel on your brickwork. This pointing test panel will allow you to see how each of the techniques compares with one another and also which suits the style of your house best.

The next thing is to remove the mortar by raking and cleaning out the joints. This painstaking process can be pretty time consuming because the joints need to have all the debris, dust and old mortar removed in order to finish up with a sound bonding surface for the application of new mortar. The repointers will be particularly careful around doors, windows and other openings where the movement of brickwork or an excess of mortar can cause difficulties in closing and opening them.

Before fresh mortar is applied, the walls will be damped down to prevent it from drying out too quickly. This helps produce a strong joint by maintaining the flexilibility of the mortar and preventing cracks. During the mortar application there will be excess mortar and smears on the brickwork that looks untidy, but this will be removed as soon as it's dried out. A wire brush can be used to clean the areas that have been finished before moving on to the next part of the wall requiring work.

At this point the necessity for any brick replacement, chimney repairs or lead flashing replacement will be carried out by the contractor.
