A trustworthy repointing contractor or company in Locks Heath will go over any issues found with your brickwork and explore the best methods of remedial action before commencing any actual physical work. It's likely that your repointing company will require the erection of scaffolding so as to have a safe platform whilst doing the work on your property. Once the scaffolding is in place a protective sheet will be fixed on its outer side. This helps to avoid any property damage and reduce the injury risk to everyone in the vicinity of the work.

Any external wires, such as TV or satellite cables, will be removed from the walls and any pipes may be removed or adjusted to enable easier access to the brickwork behind. This is only temporary and they will be replaced back in their appropriate position when all reparation work has been completed.

If your brickwork is rendered, painted or pebble-dashed, these coverings will now need to be removed to enable the repointing team to start the renovation project. The brickwork that is behind these coverings will be sanded and cleaned to ensure a uniform finish for your exterior walls.

To help you pick out the type of repointing finish to your walls, a reliable Locks Heath repointing specialist will be glad to display the various pointing styles (Flush, Recessed, Weather Struck or Tuck), by the creation of a test section on your wall.

The next thing is to take out the old, crumbling mortar by raking and cleaning out the joints in the brickwork. This painstaking process can be quite time consuming because the joints need to be cleaned of any debris, old mortar and dust in order to establish a sound bonding surface for the application of new mortar. The repointers will be particularly careful around windows, doors and other openings where the movement of brickwork or a surplus of mortar can result in difficulty in closing and opening them.

One thing that must be avoided is the new mortar drying out too rapidly, and this can be averted by dampening the walls. This helps establish a strong joint by maintaining the flexilibility of the mortar and avoiding cracks. During the application of the mortar there will be excess mortar and smears on the adjacent brickwork which looks sloppy, but this will be removed as soon as it's dried. The repointers will tackle the walls in small sections, pointing and cleaning each one as they go along before moving on to a new patch.

If any chimney repairs, brick replacement or lead flashing work needs doing by the repointing company as part of the project, now's the time when these jobs will be undertaken.
