It is the bricks and mortar that make a building strong and protected from the weather. To keep a structure warm and dry the mortar needs to be in sufficiently good condition to stop any draughts and moisture from forcing its way in through gaps or holes. But how do you know precisely when you need to do repointing your property in Kesgrave?

Repointing Kesgrave Suffolk (IP5)

Basically, you need to take a good look at the state of the bricks and mortar of your outside walls. Repointing is normally needed if you can visually identify a problem area. In areas such as on chimneys or under eaves it may be necessary to use a professional to check, however in most cases you should be able to see for yourself the physical signs of deterioration.

Defective mortar does not only look awful, it can raise questions of safety as well. Mortar is the "glue" that binds the structure and shape together in any Kesgrave house, and when badly in poor condition can have an impact on the integrity of a building. Any weakness in the construction can make a dwelling unstable with serious implications and perhaps even a risk to the life of inhabitants.

If your mortar has been neglected through the years, or you're renovating an older property in Kesgrave, you might also need to restore brickwork that has been damaged or weakened. Any defective bricks found during the survey by the repointing company will be repaired or replaced before any repointing takes place.

As soon as any issues have been detected then reparation work can start. It's quite possible your repointing specialist will need a scaffold so as to have a stable platform whilst working on your property. When the scaffolding is in position a protective sheet will be attached to the outside of it. This protective sheeting should prevent any debris or mortar dust from damaging your house, or neighbours properties, and is also a safety measure to help prevent injuries to anybody that is passing by.

Any exterior wires, such as TV or satellite cables, will be removed from the walls and any pipes will be adjusted or removed to allow access to the brickwork behind. This is only a temporary measure and they'll be returned to their original position once all reparation work has been completed.

Any paint, rendering, pebble-dash or other coverings will now need to be safely removed to enable the repointing contractors to access the bare walls and start their reparation work. After removal of such coverings all the bricks can be cleaned and sanded, this gives the repointers a uniform wall surface to work with.

The next step is to take out the old, crumbling mortar in stages by raking and scraping out the joints in the brickwork. This is quite a laborious procedure where the old mortar and any dust or loose debris must be carefully cleaned away to provide a satisfactory binding surface for the new mortar. The repointing team will be especially watchful around windows, doors and openings where movement in the brickwork or an excess of mortar can cause difficulties in closing and opening them.

Before any fresh mortar is administered, the walls will be damped down to prevent it from setting too quickly. This makes sure that the mortar remains flexible and allows it to dry out at a gentler pace to prevent cracking and generating a weak joint. Any excess mortar and smears that are left on the bricks can be cleaned off as soon as the mortar has dried out thoroughly. The repointers will work on the brickwork in sections, pointing and cleaning each one as they go before moving on to a new area.

It is possible that as the repointing team are doing their work they might find damaged bricks that need replacing, or maybe problems with faulty lead flashing or a chimney stack, and a professional company will be able to undertake these repairs as they progress.
