Repointing Quotes Kings Langley Hertfordshire

Work can start once the problem areas have been identified and discussed with the owner of the property. Most homes will need a scaffold to provide a stable platform from which to do the work. When the scaffolding is in place a protective sheet will be secured on its outer side. This sheeting should stop any mortar dust or other debris from damaging your property, or neighbouring properties, and also gives a layer of safety to prevent injuries to passers-by.

All external wiring, such as TV or satellite cables, will be unfastened from the walls and pipes may be removed or adjusted to enable easier access to the brickwork behind. This is of course only temporary and they will be put back in their original position once all repointing work has been accomplished.

To allow the repointers to get to the brickwork in question, any rendering, pebble-dash or paint will now have to be removed before work can commence. When this has been removed the bricks can be thoroughly sanded and cleaned to provide an even surface for work to begin.

To help you choose the style of repointing finish to your walls, a good Kings Langley repointing contractor will be willing to show the various different pointing styles (Weather Struck, Tuck, Recessed or Flush), by the creation of a test section on your brickwork. This small test panel will enable you to see how each of the designs compares with one another and also which suits your style of home best.

Now the dusty work begins as the old, crumbling mortar is taken out by raking and cleaning out the joints. This can be a laborious procedure where any dust, debris and old mortar must be carefully cleaned out to produce a decent binding surface for the new mortar. The repointers will be particularly careful around windows, doors and openings where movement in the brickwork or an over application of mortar can result in difficulty in closing and opening them.

Once the joints are clean, the walls should be dampened to prevent the new mortar from drying out too rapidly and subsequently cracking. This helps establish a solid joint by keeping the mortar flexible and stopping cracks. During the mortar application there will be excess mortar and smears on the brickwork that looks sloppy, but this can be removed as soon as it has dried. The team will tackle the brickwork in small sections, pointing and cleaning each one as they go along before starting on a new area.
