It is stated that a building is only as good as its mortar and bricks, and that is most definitely the case.

Repointing Deptford Greater London

Inspect your exterior walls and try to spot any damage which is visible to the naked eye. You've got an issue if you can spot an issue! In the majority of properties you should not have too much of a problem spotting clear signs of impairment, although in some situations it might be necessary to consult a professional to examine those hard to reach and remote areas like under eaves or on chimneys.

The safety issues that crumbling or cracked mortar can cause will also need to be taken into account, as well as the aesthetics of your house. Mortar is the binding agent that holds the shape and structure together in any Deptford property, and when badly damaged can impact on the entire integrity of a building. If this is weakened, the structure can become unsound, which with regards to chimney stacks or taller buildings, can cause significant damage and danger to life.

If you're renovating an older property or your mortar has been neglected for years, you may also need to restore brickwork that has been damaged or weakened. A trustworthy brick repointing company in Deptford will swiftly identify any areas that require possible replacement and offer a service to refurbish the brickwork while doing the repointing.

Brickwork Repointing Deptford

The exterior walls of many Deptford houses were often rendered with plaster or painted over in the past. It could point to the presence of more extensive problems beneath the surface, if you begin to see bubbling, cracks or flaking of the paint or rendering. Inspection of this issue, by a professional contractor is the only practical way to ensure the degradation does not spread more widely and lead to structural problems down the line. This will help to keep your house in the best condition possible, and secure in the knowledge that the work has been done skillfully.


A fair amount of time and effort will be needed to repoint your home in Deptford, and working up high will usually be involved. A visual inspection is the first step in this process and will determine the scope of the remedial work that is needed on your home. This will allow them to supply you with a price quote for the renovation project. Remember to always obtain 2 or 3 quotes and don't always assume the cheapest is the best option.

It might be that in the first site survey there were some parts of your property that were hard to reach or inaccessible and in this instance a second, more in depth survey could be required. A price quote after the second survey could even be higher because of issues identified during this more in depth inspection. If you've got an older house in Deptford that is more than 60 years old, it's more likely to require restorative work on repointing than a more modern property.

As soon as any issues have been identified then repointing work can commence. It's quite possible your repointing team will require the erection of scaffolding so as to have a safe working platform while working on your property. When this has been erected then some kind of protective sheet will be fixed in position. This might be plastic sheeting to trap any debris and dirt that is created during the repair work.

Any exterior wires, such as satellite or TV, will be detached from the walls and any piping will be removed or adjusted to permit access to the brickwork behind. This is of course only temporary and they'll be replaced back in their original position as soon as all repointing work has been concluded.

Any paint, pebble-dash, rendering or other covering will now have to be removed carefully to allow the repointing contractors to gain access to the bare walls and press ahead with their repair work. When this has been done the brickwork can be thoroughly sanded and cleaned to provide a uniform surface to work on.

Brick Repointing Near Deptford (SE8)

A reputable Deptford repointing company will be happy to prepare a test panel on your property to help you to picture the various finishes available for the mortar, (Weather Struck, Tuck, Flush or Recessed pointing). This allows you to see how each would look on your property and demonstrate the different colours and styles available.

The joints in the brickwork are now raked out to remove the old mortar and clear the spaces between the bricks. This is a time consuming stage and entails the grinding or chipping away of old mortar and brushing out any loose debris and dust to provide a good platform onto which to apply the new mortar. Any window and door openings will be given extra attention by the repointing team to prevent any disturbances of the frames or having excess mortar applied which can cause problems in their opening and closing.

Something that should be avoided is the new mortar drying out too quickly, and this can be averted by dampening down the brickwork. This keeps the mortar flexible and allows it to dry at a gentler pace to avoid cracking, which can lead to a weakened joint. During the application of the mortar there'll be excess mortar and smears on the adjoining brickwork that looks untidy, but this will be removed as soon as it has dried. The walls will usually be split into areas, and each one in turn will be pointed, allowed to dry, and then cleaned off before the repointers move on to a new section of wall.

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