Free Ore Repointing Quotes

The construction of any structure is only as strong as the mortar and bricks. To be able to stop any draughts and damp from finding a way into your home, the mortar must be sound, and not have any holes or gaps. But how do you know precisely when you need to repoint your brickwork in Ore?

Repointing Ore (TN35)

Quite simply, you need to take a close look at the mortar and bricks of your exterior walls. Repointing work is usually necessary if you can visually distinguish a problem area. In the vast majority of buildings you shouldn't have a problem spotting clear signs of deterioration, although in some scenarios it may be a good idea to bring in a professional to inspect those hard to reach and remote areas such as under eaves or on chimney stacks.

The issues of safety that cracked or damaged mortar can cause should also be considered, together with the aesthetics and appearance of your house. If the mortar is severely damaged this can impact on the entire integrity of your Ore property, as the mortar is the element that holds everything and keeps it sound. Any weaknesses in the structural integrity can make a building unstable with serious implications and possibly even a risk to life.

If you are upgrading an older home in Ore, there could also be a need to restore brickwork that has been cracked or damaged through the years. To ensure the best possible finish to your property, a reputable Ore brick repointing specialist will replace or repair any damaged bricks before concluding the mortar joint repointing.

Repointing Brickwork Ore

To help in preserving the brickwork, many properties in Ore had their exterior walls rendered over or painted. If you find any signs of peeling, flaking or other degradation to painted or rendered brickwork, it might suggest problems with the mortar or bricks allowing damp into the walls. The only practical way to ensure the degradation does not spread more widely and lead to structural challenges as time goes on, is to get an expert contractor to do a survey. After that you can have the satisfaction knowing that your external walls are in the best possible condition, and that the restoration work has been carried out by a specialist.


Repointing takes quite a bit of time to accomplish properly and will entail working at considerable height in many cases. A visual inspection is the very first step in the process and will evaluate the magnitude of remedial work that is needed on your house. This will allow them to offer you a quotation for renovation and repair. The same standard of service will not be offered by all repointing companies in the Ore area, so make an effort to obtain a minimum of three estimates, and closely consider each one. Remember, cheapest is not always best!

A second site survey might be required when you accept a quote and could include the use of extending ladders, or even scaffolding, to get to inaccessible sections of your property. This second, more stringent survey may expose different trouble spots that could have an effect on the initial quote. If your Ore property has never previously been repointed and is over 60 years old, it is likely to need more restorative work than would be the case with a more modern one.

Quotes for Repointing Ore East Sussex

As soon as the issues have been confirmed then repointing work can start. To provide a solid platform for the team of repointing specialists, most properties will need some scaffold to be set up. As soon as this has been erected then some sort of protective sheet will be fixed in place. This is to avoid any property damage and reduce any risk of injury to anybody in the vicinity of the work.

All external wires, such as satellite or TV, will be detached from the walls and any pipes will be removed or adjusted to allow easy access to the brickwork behind. This is of course only temporary and they will be put back in their proper position when all reparation work has been concluded.

If your building has been pebble-dashed, rendered or painted, these will now need to be removed to allow the repointing team to start the restoration work. A thorough sanding and cleaning of the brickwork behind such coverings will be necessary, to make certain that your walls have a neat and even finish on completion.

Brick Repointing Near Ore (TN35)

If you've not yet chosen a a pointing style (Tuck, Flush, Recessed or Weather Struck pointing), or you would like to see how the various pointing options appear on your house, a decent Ore repointing company will be able to mock up a test panel on your property. This allows you to see how each design would look on your brickwork and highlight the different colours and styles available.

Now the messy work begins as the old mortar is taken out by raking and scraping out the brick joints. This painstaking process takes time because the joints need to be cleaned of any dust, debris and old mortar in order to end up with a good bonding area for the application of new mortar. Any window and door openings will be paid extra care by the repointers to prevent any surplus applications of mortar or disturbances of the frames which can lead to problems with their closing and opening.

When the joints have been cleaned, the brickwork will be dampened to help stop the fresh mortar from drying out too quickly and subsequently cracking. This helps create a solid joint by maintaining the flexilibility of the mortar and preventing cracks. During the application of the mortar there'll be smears and some excess mortar on the adjoining brickwork that looks untidy, but this will be removed as soon as it's properly dried. The walls will be split into areas, and each one in turn will be repointed, allowed to dry, and then cleaned off before the repointers get on with the next section of brickwork.

During this stage the necessity for any chimney repairs, lead flashing work or brick replacement will be carried out by the contractor.

Chimney Repointing

A chimney is often overlooked when it comes to property maintenance, but a chimney that's showing signs of decay can be an expensive hazard. During an initial evaluation of your chimney in Ore, a specialist could recommend repointing or even a complete rebuild of your chimney, subject to the size of the affected and damaged area. Chimney repointing by a professional will restore the structural integrity of your chimney by replacing the crumbling, old mortar with fresh, new material. This can forestall the need for a complete chimney rebuild and give you peace of mind for many more years. Having your chimney in Ore repointed also helps to prevent damage to the interior of your chimney, by stopping moisture from seeping through the cracks and holes in the mortar. Most modern chimneys will be lined with steel and if moisture makes contact with this liner, it reduces its lifespan. Once repointing work has been done, an exterior sealant should be applied which repels water and allows any internal moisture to be released.

Ridge Tile Repointing Ore

Roof tiles and mortar joints should be examined every other year at least. Repointing cracks in mortar joints can prevent leaking roofs and expensive re-roofing work in Ore. Be extra vigilant with ridge tiles as they're exposed to the extremes of the weather from all sides and may develop cracks in the mortar joints before other tiles on the roof. If cracks are discovered in the mortar between ridge tiles, the options are rebed the ridge tile or repoint the joints.

Of course, sometimes a ridge tile has to be rebedded instead of repointed which requires a bit more work. Again, be sure to take all safety precautions while working on the roof. Use a chisel and hammer to remove the mortar as well as the ridge tile. Use the chisel and hammer to remove the mortar from the bed on the roof, and mortar from the underside of the ridge tile. As soon as the ridge tile is off, replacing the ridge iron is a good idea, particularly if there's any evidence of rust. Remove any organic matter such as moss and algae and spray on a fungicide to make certain the area is protected in the future. Then soak the area in water while mixing mortar. Mix a stiff mortar in a ratio of 3:1 (sharp sand: cement). Dampen the tile and roof as you work. Apply mortar to each side of the tile and use a trowel to lay a bed of mortar on the roof. Position on the mortar bed and press firmly down. Remove any mortar that seeps out between joints. Ensure the joint gaps are filled, and smooth joints with pointing trowel.
