It's merely a case of checking your brickwork visually. If you are able to spot a problem then you have a problem.

Damaged mortar does not only look horrible, it can cause questions of safety too. Mortar is the "glue" that holds the structure and shape together in any Euxton home, and if badly damaged can have an impact on the overall integrity of a structure. Any weakness in the structural integrity can render a dwelling unstable with severe implications and perhaps even a risk to the life of inhabitants.

If your mortar has been neglected over the years, or you're restoring an older building in Euxton, you may also have to restore brickwork that has been weakened or damaged. Any deteriorating brickwork identified during the inspection by the specialist will be repaired or replaced before any repointing is completed.

Any dependable repointing expert in Euxton will be able to perform this service and keep your property safe and looking wonderful.

WHAT ARE THE STEPS FOR REPOINTING BRICKWORK IN EUXTON?

Repointing can be a lengthy process and can involve working at height, subject to the style of your property. A visual inspection is the initial step in this process and will determine the magnitude of remedial work that is needed on your house. This will allow them to provide you with a price quote for repair and renovation. Do not assume all repointing companies in Euxton provide the same level of service and the cheapest quotation might not invariably be the best option.

If you have out-of-reach sections of your property that couldn't be checked out in the original site survey, a further inspection with long ladders and perhaps scaffolding may be needed. It may be the case that this more detailed survey might expose more issues that may increase the initial quotation. If you've got an older house in Euxton that's more than 60 years old, it's much more likely to require remedial repointing work than a more modern building.

This helps to prevent any property damage and reduce the risk of injury to everybody in the immediate working area.

All pipes, conduits and cables that are mounted on the wall will be removed or their position adjusted to allow access to the brickwork behind them. This is of course only temporary and they'll be replaced back in their appropriate position once all repointing work has been completed.

This is quite a laborious procedure where the old mortar and any dust or loose debris must be painstakingly removed to provide a satisfactory bonding surface for the new mortar. Any windows and doors will be given extra attention by the repointing team to avoid any excess applications of mortar or distortion of the frames which could cause problems in their closing and opening.

Before any fresh mortar is administered, the walls will be damped down to stop it from drying out too rapidly. This helps produce a solid joint by keeping the mortar flexible and stopping cracks.

The team will work on the brickwork in sections, pointing and cleaning each one as they go along before starting on a new area.
