The construction of any home is only as strong as the bricks and mortar. To keep a house warm and dry the mortar needs to be in good enough condition to stop any draughts and damp from forcing its way in through holes or gaps. But how do you know exactly when you need to repoint your home in Sandiway?

Repointing Sandiway Cheshire (CW8)

It's merely a matter of checking your brickwork visually. Repointing is typically required if you can visually identify a problem area. It might be necessary to call in a professional to inspect hard to reach areas such as under eaves or on chimney stacks, however in many houses you should be able to see any indications of degradation fairly easily.

You also need to consider the questions of safety that crumbling or damaged mortar could potentially cause. The mortar is the foundation of strength in your Sandiway home and is the "glue" that binds the structure and shape together. Any weak points in the construction can render a building unstable with serious consequences and risk to the life of inhabitants.

If you are restoring an older building or your mortar has been neglected over the years, you may also have to restore brickwork that's been weakened or damaged. Any deteriorating bricks identified during the inspection by the company will be repaired or replaced before any mortar repointing takes place.

Many Sandiway houses in the past had their external walls painted or rendered with plaster to help shield the brickwork. If there are any signs of flaking, peeling or other degradation to rendered and painted brickwork, it could be a warning of problems with the mortar or bricks letting moisture to seep into the walls. Inspection of this problem, by a repointing specialist is the only safe way to make certain the degradation does not spread further and trigger structural problems as time goes on. By employing a qualified and reputable repointing company you will keep your exterior walls in the best condition possible.


Repointing can be a lengthy process and can entail working at height, depending on the style of your property. The very first thing a repointing specialist will do is a visual inspection to evaluate the damage and requirements to your brickwork. This will enable them to provide you with a price quote for repointing work. You should get two or three quotations and don't automatically assume cheapest is best.

If you have out-of-reach parts of your home that were unable to be assessed during the initial site survey, a second inspection with ladders and perhaps scaffolding could be needed. It's quite possible that this more detailed survey may uncover further problems that could cause the first estimate to increase. The older your structure is, the more likely it will be necessary to repoint the mortar, and this is particularly so for those properties in Sandiway which are more than 60 years old.

Reparation work can start once any problem areas have been confirmed and discussed with the property owner. It's quite possible that your repointing company will need to put up a scaffold in order to have a stable working platform while doing the work on your home. As soon as this has been put up then some type of protective sheeting will be fixed in position. This protective sheeting should stop any mortar dust or other debris from causing damage to your property, or neighbouring properties, and also provides an extra layer of safety to help prevent injuries to anybody that's passing by.

Any exterior cables, such as TV or satellite, will be unfastened from the walls and any pipes will be adjusted or removed to enable access to the brickwork behind. When the repointing work is completed all cables and pipes will be put back into their original positions.

To allow the repointers to get to the bricks and mortar of your external walls, any rendering, pebble-dash or paint will now have to be removed before work can start. The brickwork behind these coverings will be sanded and cleaned to make sure that the finish on your brickwork is consistent.

Brick Repointing Near Sandiway (CW8)

If you've not yet decided on a style of finish (Weather Struck, Recessed, Flush or Tuck pointing), or you would like to see how the different pointing options appear on your house, a competent Sandiway repointing specialist will be glad to mock up a test section on your brickwork. This should help you get an idea of the finished result and make sure you're satisfied with the finished product with regard to colour and style.

The next step is to take out the old, crumbling mortar by raking and cleaning out the joints in the brickwork. This is a time consuming process and entails the chipping or grinding away of old mortar and brushing away any dust and loose debris to provide a good platform onto which to apply the new mortar. Any doors and windows will be given extra attention by the repointers to prevent any distortions of the frames or having excess mortar applied which can lead to problems with their closing and opening.

Before fresh mortar is administered, the brickwork will be damped down to stop it from setting too rapidly. This makes sure that the mortar stays flexible and allows it to dry at a gentler pace to prevent cracking and generating a weaker joint. During the mortar application there will be excess mortar and smears on the adjacent brickwork that can look messy, but this will be removed as soon as it's dried out. A wire brush is used to clean the brickwork which have been completed before moving on to the next section of the wall requiring work.

It is possible that as the repointing team are working they may find cracked brickwork that needs replacing, or perhaps problems with lead flashing or a chimney, and a professional company will be ideally placed to carry out such repairs as they progress.
