Even bungalows and single storey buildings may require some type of scaffolding to establish a secure platform for your repointing team.

This protective sheeting should stop any mortar dust or other debris from damaging your property, or nearby properties, and is also a safety measure to prevent injuries to anyone passing by.

To help you choose the style of repointing finish to your walls, a reliable Horley repointing contractor will be happy to display the different pointing designs (Tuck, Flush, Weather Struck or Recessed), by the creation of a test panel on your brickwork.

Now the dusty work will begin as the old, damaged mortar is removed by raking and scraping out the brick joints. This is a very time consuming process and entails the grinding or chipping away of old mortar and brushing away any loose debris and dust to provide a clean surface for the application of new mortar. The repointers will be particularly watchful around doors, windows and other openings where any movement of brickwork or an over application of mortar can cause difficulties in opening and closing them.

Something that must be avoided is the rapid drying out of the new mortar, and this can be averted by dampening the walls. This delayed drying time helps to stop the mortar from becoming inflexible and cracking, which can lead to a weakened joint. During the application of the mortar there'll be excess mortar and smears on the surrounding brickwork which looks messy, but this can be removed as soon as it has dried. A wire brush can be used to clean the areas that have been completed before starting on the next part of the wall needing work.

It's quite possible that as the repointing team are doing their work they may find crumbling bricks that need replacing, or perhaps issues with faulty lead flashing or a damaged chimney stack, and an experienced repointer will be able to complete such repairs as they go.

Tuckpointing Horley

A restoration method that can be used on old and weathered brickwork where the mortar is unstable and crumbling, tuck pointing (or tuckpointing) can be extremely beneficial. The aesthetic look of walls can be enhanced with this technique, giving the impression that they're in better condition than they actually are, and giving an illusion of well-formed brickwork.

First of all, the crumbling, old mortar is raked out, and this is then replaced with a new coloured mortar which matches the colour of the wall. Then to give the perception that the joints are neat and tidy, where in fact the joints may be wide and irregular in width, a thin contrasting strip of (usually lighter) mortar is "tucked" in.

The impact of tuckpointing can be quite striking, in particular when viewed from a distance, and can substantially improve the visual appearance of a wall without the requirement for disruptive renovations. tuckpointing services are also available in Burstow, Crawley, Redhill, South Nutfield, Felbridge, Blindley Heath, Newchapel, Norwood Hill, Charlwood, Sidlow, Newdigate, Leigh, Horne, Shipley Bridge, Smallfield, Salfords, and and of course in Horley itself.
