Remember to always get more than one price quote and don't always assume the cheapest is the best option.

A second site survey could be needed once you accept a price quote and might involve the use of step ladders, or perhaps even scaffolding, to gain access to out-of-reach sections of your property.

Reparation work can begin once the problem areas have been confirmed and agreed with the owner of the property. Most homes will require scaffolding to be erected to provide a stable working platform for the bricklayer. An arrangement of protective sheeting or shielding should then be attached to the exterior of the scaffold. This is to prevent any damage to property and minimise any injury risk to anybody in the immediate working area.

All external wires, such as TV or satellite cables, will be unfastened from the walls and any pipework will be removed or adjusted to permit access to the brickwork behind. This is only temporary and they'll be returned to their appropriate position as soon as all reparation work has been concluded.

If your house has previously been rendered, pebble-dashed or painted, these coverings will now have to be removed to enable the repointing contractors to begin the repair work. When this has been done the brickwork is meticulously cleaned and sanded to provide an even surface for work to begin.

The brick joints are now raked out to remove the old, crumbling mortar and clear the spaces between the bricks. This painstaking process takes time as the joints need to be cleaned of any debris, old mortar and dust so as to supply a sound bonding surface for the new mortar to be stick to.

Tuck Pointing Culcheth

Tuckpointing is a method of repointing old and battered brick or stonework where the mortar joints are crumbling and unstable. It is a technique that's employed to aesthetically improve the look of walls to give the illusion that they are perfectly maintained.

The old, crumbling mortar will be raked out and replaced with a new mixture which is colour-blended with the brick or stone in the wall. Then a thin line of (usually lighter) mortar which is contrasting in colour is "tucked" in, making it appear like the previously wide and untidy joints are even and neat.

The effect of tuck-pointing can be quite remarkable, particularly when observed from a distance, and can vastly improve the overall appearance of a wall without the requirement for major works. (Tags: Tuck-Pointing Culcheth, Tuck Pointing Mortar Culcheth, Tuckpointing Culcheth).
