It is the mortar and bricks that make a property strong and protected from the elements.

Is it quite easy to spot when you may need to do some repointing?

Repointing Lincoln Lincolnshire (LN1)

Examine your external walls and look for any impairment that can be seen with the naked eye. If you can see issues then you've got an issue. In areas which are unreachable, such as on chimneys or under eaves; you may need an expert to assist you, but in the majority of situations you'll easily be able to see any obvious signs of deterioration for yourself.

You also need to consider the questions of safety that crumbling or defective mortar joints could potentially cause. Mortar is the binding agent that holds the shape and structure together in any Lincoln house, and when badly in poor condition can impact on the overall integrity of a structure. If this is compromised, the structure can become unsound, which with regards to taller buildings or chimney stacks, can cause serious damage as well as a risk to life.

If bricks have been weakened or damaged over the years and are the main cause of the problems with your mortar they might have to be replaced. An experienced brick repointing specialist in Lincoln will swiftly identify any areas that need possible replacement and offer a service to refurbish the brickwork at the same time as repointing.

It could be the case that in past times your Lincoln property's exterior brick walls have been painted or plastered over. If you start to notice bubbling, flaking or cracks of the paint or render it could point to more severe damage beneath the surface. To avoid the deterioration spreading and causing more serious issues as time goes on, it is a good idea to seek the help of a repointing and brickwork specialist who can investigate the root cause of the issue. Through the use of a qualified and reputable bricklayer or repointing contractor you'll keep the exterior walls of your property in the best condition possible.


Repointing takes quite a bit of time to complete properly and will involve working at considerable height in many cases. The very first thing that a repointing contractor will perform is a visual survey to evaluate the severity of the damage to your property. A survey is the best way by which a repointing contractor can give you an accurate quotation for the level of work that is needed on your damaged brickwork. It is invariably best to get 2 or 3 estimates from different repointing companies in Lincoln and study the levels of service that each of them provides.

It could be that during the initial on-site survey there were some areas of your home that were out-of-reach or inaccessible and in this case a further, more detailed survey might be necessary. A quotation after the second survey may be higher because of issues identified during this more meticulous inspection. The older the structure, the more chance that it's going to need remedial repointing work, and this is particularly so for those homes in Lincoln which are in excess of 60 years old.

This is to prevent any property damage and reduce the injury risk to anybody in the vicinity of the work.

The joints in the brickwork are now thoroughly raked out to take away the old mortar and clear the gaps between the bricks. This painstaking process takes time as the joints need to be cleaned of any dust, old mortar and debris in order to supply a sound bonding surface for the application of new mortar. The repointing team will be especially cautious around windows, doors and openings where the movement of brickwork or too much mortar can cause difficulties in closing and opening them.

So the new mortar does not dry out too rapidly, the brickwork will be dampened before any new pointing begins. The delayed drying time helps to stop the mortar from cracking and becoming inflexible, which can lead to a weakened joint. When it has dried sufficiently it's time to clean any excess mortar and smears from the surrounding bricks. The repointers will tackle the walls in small sections, pointing and cleaning each one as they go along before starting on a new area.
