It's simply a case of visually checking your brickwork. If you find damaged areas or sections that look different to the remainder of the property, you may want to contact a local repointing company for further investigation. In places such as on chimney stacks or under eaves it might be necessary to use a professional to check, but in most cases you should be able to see for yourself the physical warning signs of deterioration.

Defective mortar does not only look terrible, it can cause questions of safety too. The mortar is the basis of strength in your Sandridge home and is the "glue" that binds the structure and shape together. Any weak points in the structural integrity can render a building unstable with serious implications and perhaps even a risk to life.

It might be that eroding or missing mortar has been caused by damaged brickwork. A professional Sandridge repointing company will replace any damaged brickwork before continuing with the mortar repointing to achieve the best possible finish to your home.

Quite a few Sandridge properties in past times have had their external walls rendered with plaster or painted to help protect the brickwork. Any discolouration, peeling or bubbling of paint or plaster could signify a deterioration of either mortar or bricks under the surface. Investigation of this issue, by a repointing specialist is the only effective way to ensure the deterioration does not spread more widely and cause structural issues as time goes on. Through the use of a reputable and qualified repointing company you'll keep your exterior walls in the best condition possible.

WHAT ARE THE STEPS FOR REPOINTING BRICKWORK IN SANDRIDGE?

Repointing can be a lengthy process and can involve working at height, subject to the style of your property. The first thing a repointing company will do is a visual inspection to ascertain the severity of the damage to your house. A thorough inspection is the best way by which a repointing specialist can give you an accurate quote for the volume of work that's required on your brickwork. You should obtain more than one price quote and don't automatically assume cheapest is best.

It may be that during the original site survey there were some parts of your property that were hard to reach or inaccessible and in cases like this a second, more thorough survey may be needed. This second, more stringent survey might uncover additional trouble spots that might have an effect on the initial price quote. The older the building, the more likely it is to need repointing, and this is especially true for those homes in Sandridge which are in excess of sixty years old.

As soon as any problems have been confirmed then reparation work can commence. It's quite possible your repointing contractor will need to erect a scaffold in order to have a sturdy platform while doing the work on your home. An arrangement of protective sheeting or shielding should then be secured to the outside of the scaffold. This could be in the way of polythene sheeting to trap any dirt and debris that is generated during the repairs.

All external cabling, such as TV or satellite, will be removed from the walls and any piping may be adjusted or removed to permit easier access to the brickwork behind. Once the project has been finished and all repointing work undertaken these cables and pipes will be secured back in place.

If your house has been painted, pebble-dashed or rendered, these coverings will now be removed to allow the repointing contractors to commence the restoration work. The brickwork behind such outer coverings will be cleaned and sanded to make sure that the finish on your brickwork is uniform.

Brick Repointing Near Sandridge (AL4)

To help you choose the ideal type of pointing for your walls, a good Sandridge repointing contractor will be able to demonstrate the different pointing designs (Tuck, Weather Struck, Flush or Recessed), by creating a test section on your brickwork. This should help you get a good idea of the final result and make sure that you're satisfied with regard to colour and style.

Now the dusty work will begin as the old mortar is removed by raking and cleaning out the brick joints. This is a time consuming stage and entails the chipping or grinding away of old mortar and brushing away any loose debris and dust to provide a nice, clean surface onto which to apply the new mortar. Particular care is taken around windows and doors since any movement in the brickwork can lead to issues with their closing and opening.

To avoid the fresh mortar drying out too fast, the brickwork will be dampened before any new pointing commences. This makes sure that the mortar stays flexible and enables it to dry out at a slower pace to avoid cracking, which can lead to a weakened joint. Any smears and excess mortar that is left on the brickwork can be cleaned away once the mortar is thoroughly dry. The repointers will work on the brickwork in small sections, pointing and cleaning each one as they go before moving on to a new area.

If any chimney repairs, lead flashing work or brick replacement is found to be needed by the repointing company as part of the project, now is the time that these tasks will be undertaken.
