The construction of any house is only as strong as its mortar and bricks. The mortar must be sound, without any holes or gaps to be able to stop any draughts and damp from finding a path into your house. Is it fairly easy to establish when you might need repointing?
It's merely a matter of visually checking your brickwork. Repointing is generally necessary if you can visually identify some problem areas. In most cases you'll be able to see any physical signs of deterioration, however in sections that are remote or hidden, such as under eaves or on chimneys; you might need the services of a specialist to assist you.
It isn't just the aesthetics that are in jeopardy if your property in Frodsham needs repointing, there are questions of safety to also consider. The integrity of any Frodsham property is only as reliable as its mortar and bricks. If this is compromised, the framework can become unstable, which with regards to chimney stacks or taller buildings, can cause severe damage as well as a risk to life.
It may be that eroding or missing mortar is the result of damaged bricks. A local Frodsham repointing contractor will replace any defective brickwork before completing the mortar repointing to achieve the perfect finish to your house.
Many Frodsham homes in the past have had their external walls painted or rendered to help shield the brickwork. Any cracks, flaking or bubbling of plaster or paint could signify damage to either mortar or bricks under the surface. The only safe way to investigate a problem of this type is by hiring a repointing and brickwork specialist who'll find the main cause behind the mortar damage. A professional repointing company in Frodsham can achieve this and help to keep your property in the best condition possible.
WHAT ARE THE STEPS IN REPOINTING BRICKWORK IN FRODSHAM?
Repointing takes a fair amount of time to accomplish correctly and will entail working up high in many cases. To enable a repointing business to accurately determine the remedial work that is needed on your house they'll first need to undertake a visual inspection. A thorough inspection is the only way in which a repointing contractor can offer you a price quote for the amount of work that's required on your brickwork. Don't assume that all repointing contractors in Frodsham provide the same standard of service and the lowest estimate might not invariably be the best option.
A further site survey may be necessary as soon as you accept a price quote and could include the use of extending ladders, or perhaps even scaffolding, to gain access to inaccessible sections of your house. It might be that this more comprehensive survey could reveal further problems that could cause the original price quote to increase. The older your building is, the more likely it will be necessary to repoint the mortar, and this is particularly true for those properties in Frodsham over sixty years old.
A decent repointing specialist in Frodsham will go over any problems found with your house and agree the best methods of repair before starting any actual work. Even single storey buildings and bungalows might need some kind of scaffolding to provide a sturdy working platform for your repointing team. As soon as the scaffolding is up some protective sheeting will be fixed on its outer side. This protective sheeting should stop any mortar dust or other debris from harming your property, or neighbours properties, and is also a safety measure to prevent injuries to passers-by.
Cabling and pipework may need to be removed or adjusted to enable ease of access to the brickwork behind them. Once the project has been completed and all remedial action carried out these pipes and cables will be secured back in place.
Any paint, pebble-dash, rendering or other covering will now need to be removed safely to allow the repointing team to access the brickwork and begin their remedial work. After removal of these coverings all brickwork is cleaned and sanded to give the repointing team a uniform wall surface to work on.
If you haven't decided upon a a style of pointing (Tuck, Weather Struck, Recessed or Flush pointing), or you would like to see how the various pointing options appear on your home, a competent Frodsham repointing specialist will be willing to mock up a test section on your property. This should help you get an idea of the final result and make sure you're satisfied in relation to style and colour.
Now the dusty work will begin as the old, crumbling mortar is removed by raking and cleaning out the joints. This is quite a laborious process where the old mortar and any dust or loose debris must be painstakingly removed to provide a satisfactory binding surface for the new mortar. Any windows and doors will be given extra attention by the repointers to prevent any distortions of the frames or having too much mortar applied which can cause problems in their opening and closing.
When the joints have been cleaned, the walls should be damped down to prevent the new mortar from drying out too quickly and subsequently cracking. This slower drying time stops the mortar from cracking and becoming inflexible, which can bring about a compromised joint. Any smears and excess mortar that is left on the bricks can be cleaned off as soon as the mortar has dried out thoroughly. The team will tackle the walls in small sections, cleaning each one as they go along before starting on a new patch.
If any chimney repairs, lead flashing replacement or brick replacement needs to be done by the repointing company during the work, now is the time that these repairs will be carried out.
After cleaning the walls for a final time, to get a uniform appearance, any re-painting, rendering or pebble-dashing of the finished wall surface can be done. After the pipes and TV and satellite cables are placed back into position, scaffolding will be removed and all of the debris and waste is taken away from the site.
Your repointing and brick repair should be good for another 50-60 years so long as it is accomplished by a certified and professional repointing company in Frodsham.
