Now the dusty work begins as the old mortar is removed by raking and scraping out the brick joints. This painstaking process can be quite time consuming as the joints need to have all the dust, old mortar and debris removed so as to finish up with a sound bonding surface for the application of new mortar. The repointers will be especially watchful around windows, doors and other openings where movement in the brickwork or over application of mortar can result in difficulty in closing and opening them.

Once the joints have been cleaned, the brickwork will be dampened to help prevent the fresh mortar from drying out too rapidly and ultimately cracking. The delayed drying time stops the mortar from becoming inflexible and cracking, which can bring about a weaker joint. During the application of the mortar there will be smears and some excess mortar on the surrounding brickwork which can look messy, but this will be removed as soon as it has properly dried. The walls are divided into areas, and each one in turn will be pointed, left to dry, and then cleaned before the team move on to a new section of wall.

It is possible that as the repointers are working they may find damaged brickwork that needs replacing, or perhaps problems with a chimney or faulty lead flashing, and an experienced repointer will be in a position to complete such repair work as they go along.
