WHAT ARE THE STEPS IN REPOINTING BRICKWORK IN STONE?

Repointing can be a time consuming process and can entail working up high, depending on your property type.

This inspection will allow them to provide you with an itemised quote for the work required. Always get two or three quotations and don't automatically assume cheapest is best.

Repointing Quotes Stone Staffordshire

Repointing work can start as soon as any trouble spots have been identified and discussed with the property owner. Most properties will require scaffolding to be erected to provide a stable platform from which to do the work. A form of protective sheeting or shielding will then be secured to the outside of the scaffolding. This sheeting should prevent any debris or mortar dust from harming your property, or neighbouring properties, and is also a safety measure to help prevent injuries to anyone passing by.

Any exterior wires, such as satellite or TV, will be unfastened from the walls and pipework may be adjusted or removed to enable easier access to the brickwork behind. This is only temporary and they will be replaced back in their appropriate position as soon as all repointing work has been finished.

To enable the repointing team to access the brickwork in question, any pebble-dash, paint or rendering will now have to be removed before work may start. After removal of any coverings all the bricks can be sanded and cleaned, this gives the repointers a standardised wall surface to work on.

If you haven't chosen a finishing style (Tuck, Recessed, Weather Struck or Flush pointing), or you want to see how the different pointing options look on your house, an experienced Stone repointing company will be able to mock up a test section on your brickwork. This will help you get an idea of the finished result and make sure you are satisfied in respect of colour and style.

The next phase is to take out the old mortar by raking and cleaning out the joints in the brickwork. This painstaking process can be pretty time consuming because the joints need to have all the dust, old mortar and debris removed in order to supply a good bonding area for the new mortar to be stick to. Any door and window openings will be paid extra care by the repointing team to avoid any surplus applications of mortar or distortions of the frames which can lead to problems with their opening and closing.

When the joints have been cleaned, the brickwork will be damped down to prevent the new mortar from drying out too quickly and subsequently cracking. The slower drying time stops the mortar from becoming inflexible and cracking, which can create a compromised joint. During the mortar application there'll be excess mortar and smears on the adjoining brickwork which looks untidy, but this can be removed as soon as it has properly dried. A wire brush will be used to clean the wall areas which have been completed before moving on to the next part of the wall needing work.

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

Tuckpointing Stone

Tuckpointing is a method of repointing old and weathered brickwork where the mortar is crumbling and unstable. To give the impression that they are perfectly maintained, it is an approach which is used to cosmetically augment the appearance of walls.

The old, crumbling mortar is removed and replaced with a new mixture that's colour-blended with the brick or stone in the wall. A thin contrasting line of lighter mortar is then inserted to give the perception that the joints are even and neat, where in fact the joints are in fact irregular in width.

Especially when observed from afar, the results of tuck-pointing can be quite effective, and without doing any major works, can vastly enhance the overall look of a wall. (Tags: Tuckpointing Stone, Tuck Pointing Mortar Stone, Tuck-Pointing Stone).
