Now the dusty work will begin as the old, damaged mortar is taken out by raking and scraping out the brick joints. This painstaking process takes time because the joints need to have all the debris, old mortar and dust removed so as to establish a sound bonding surface for the new mortar to be applied to. Special attention and care is made around doors and windows as any movement in the brickwork could result in issues with their closing and opening.

Before fresh mortar is applied, the brickwork will be dampened to stop it from drying out too rapidly. This makes sure that the mortar remains flexible and enables it to dry at a gentler pace to avoid cracking and creating a weak joint. When it has dried sufficiently the time has come to clean off any smears and excess mortar from the adjoining bricks. The walls will usually be split into areas, and each one in turn will be repointed, allowed to dry, and then cleaned off before the team get on with a new section of wall.
