This is to prevent any damage to property and minimise the injury risk to people in the vicinity of the scaffolding.

This is only a temporary measure and they will be put back in their original position once all reparation work has been completed.

The next step is to remove the mortar in stages by raking and cleaning out the joints. This is a laborious process where any dust, debris and old mortar must be painstakingly cleaned out to produce a satisfactory bonding surface for the new mortar. Any door and window openings will be given extra attention by the repointing team to prevent any disturbances of the frames or having excess mortar applied which could cause problems in their closing and opening.

During the mortar application there'll be smears and some excess mortar on the brickwork which can look sloppy, but this will be removed as soon as it's dried. The walls will be split into areas, and each one in turn will be pointed, left to dry, and then cleaned off before the repointers get on with the next section.

Tuck Pointing Rosyth

What is Tuck Pointing? A restoration strategy which can be used on old and deteriorating brickwork where the mortar is unstable and crumbling, tuckpointing (or tuck pointing) can be extremely beneficial. The aesthetic look of walls can be augmented with this approach, giving the illusion that they're in far better condition than they really are, and giving the impression of perfectly-formed brickwork.

The crumbling, old mortar is raked out and replaced with a mixture that is colour-blended with the stone or brick in the wall. A thin contrasting strip of (usually lighter) mortar is then inserted to make it seem like the joints are neat and tidy, where in fact the joints are actually wide and irregular in width.

The effect of tuck-pointing can be quite spectacular, especially when observed from afar, and can vastly enhance the visual appearance of a wall without the requirement for disruptive refurbishments. tuckpointing services are also available in Crombie, Torryburn, Inverkeithing, Crossgates, Burntisland, Kinghorn, Dalgety Bay, Halbeath, Pattiesmuir, Limekilns, Cairneyhill, Hillend, Pettycur, Aberdour, Crossford, Dunfermline, and and of course in Rosyth.
