Not only does crumbling mortar look poor, there are safety concerns that can result from this too. The mortar is the basis of strength for your Inverurie house and is the "glue" that binds the entire thing together. A building can become unsound if it's structure is impaired in this way, and it can cause serious damage or even a danger to life, especially when found in chimney stacks or higher properties.

If the surveyor who carried out the initial survey was unable to view and inspect some hard to reach sections of your home, a ladder or even some form of scaffolding could be required to perform a second more thorough examination.

Repointing work can begin as soon as the problem areas have been confirmed and discussed with the property owner. So as to have a robust working platform while renovating your house, the likelihood is that the repointing contractors will need to have a scaffold set up. Some protective shielding can be secured to the exterior of the scaffolding, as soon as it has been set up. This could be in the way of plastic sheeting to trap any debris and dirt that is created during the repair work.

All conduits, pipes and cables that are attached to the wall may be removed or their position adjusted so that the brickwork behind them can be accessed. This is only temporary and they will be put back in their original position as soon as all reparation work has been accomplished.

A lot of properties in Inverurie are either rendered, painted or pebble-dashed, and if this is the situation with your house, these cosmetic coverings must be stripped off so that the repointing contractors can get to the brickwork.

Brick Repointing Near Inverurie (AB51)

Now the messy work begins as the old, crumbling mortar is taken out by raking and cleaning out the brick joints. This painstaking process takes time because the joints need to have all the old mortar, dust and debris removed so as to finish up with a good bonding area for the new mortar to be stick to. The repointing team will be particularly careful around doors, windows and openings where movement in the brickwork or over application of mortar can result in difficulty in closing and opening them.

When the joints have been cleaned, the walls should be dampened to help prevent the fresh mortar from drying out too quickly and ultimately cracking. This helps produce a solid joint by keeping the mortar flexible and preventing cracks. Any excess mortar and smears that are left on the brickwork can be cleaned off once the mortar is properly dry. The team will work on the brickwork in small sections, cleaning each one as they go along before starting on a new area.

At this point the necessity for any lead flashing work, brick replacement or chimney repairs will be undertaken by your contractor.

Ridge Tile Repointing Inverurie

Roof tiles and mortar joints should be checked every other year at a minimum. Repointing simple mortar cracks can prevent leaking roofs and expensive reroofing jobs in Inverurie. Pay extra attention to ridge tiles since they are exposed to weathering from all sides and may exhibit cracks in the mortar joints before other tiles on the roof. If cracks are discovered in the mortar between ridge tiles, the options are repoint the joints or rebed the ridge tile.

If the cracks are small and the tile seems firmly bedded, repointing the mortar is an acceptable option. If the cracks in the mortar are as wide as the mortar joint and the ridge tile seems to have some movement, it is a better idea to rebed the whole tile instead of repointing. If you repoint a tile that is no longer firmly bedded, the repair will not last very long and the crack will quickly reoccur.

The integrity of the roof protects your biggest investment from damages resulting from weather in Inverurie. Checking and repointing roof before cracks allow water to penetrate into the house are simple ways to save money.
