Basically, you need to take a good look at the bricks and mortar of your outside walls. If you discover damaged areas or parts that look different to the rest of the house, you might want to speak to a local repointing company for a more thorough investigation.

It might be the case that in past times your Teignmouth property's external brick walls have been painted or plastered over. If there are signs of flaking, peeling or other degradation to rendered and painted brickwork, it might be a warning of problems with the bricks or mortar permitting dampness to seep into the walls. To avoid the damage spreading and leading to more serious issues at a later date, it is a good idea to seek the advice of a repointing specialist who can ascertain the cause of the issue. A professional repointing specialist in Teignmouth can achieve this and help to keep your property in the best possible condition.


Repointing takes time to accomplish successfully and will involve working at considerable height in a lot of cases. To enable a repointing business to accurately assess the restorative work that's required on your brickwork they will first need to undertake a visual inspection. This survey will enable them to provide you with an itemised quotation for the work required. It is always advisable to get quotations from different repointing contractors in Teignmouth and verify the levels of service that each of them provides.

A further site survey may be needed when you accept a price quote and may involve the use of ladders, or possibly even a scaffold, to gain access to hard to reach parts of your home. A quotation after the second survey may be higher due to problems found by this more detailed inspection. The older the building is, the more likely it will be necessary to repoint the mortar, and this is particularly so for those houses in Teignmouth that are in excess of sixty years old.

Once the problems have been detected then reparation work can start. It's quite possible that your repointing contractor will need a scaffold so as to have a safe platform while doing the work on your home. When the scaffolding is in place some protective sheeting will be attached to the outside of it. This shielding should stop any mortar dust or other debris from harming your home, or neighbours properties, and also offers a layer of safety to help prevent injuries to anybody that's passing by.

Any exterior cables, such as satellite or TV, will be removed from the walls and piping may be adjusted or removed to allow access to the brickwork behind. This is of course only temporary and they will be replaced back in their proper position when all reparation work has been concluded.

Any rendering, paint, pebble-dash or other covering will now be removed carefully to allow the repointing team to access the bare walls and start their reparation work. The brickwork that is hiding behind such outer coverings will be cleaned and sanded to make sure that the finish on your walls is uniform.

Brick Repointing Near Teignmouth (TQ14)

To help you choose the style of repointing finish to your walls, a decent Teignmouth repointing specialist will be willing to show the different pointing designs (Recessed, Weather Struck, Flush or Tuck), by the creation of a test section on your wall. This enables you to see how each design will look on your brickwork and demonstrate the different styles and colours available.

The next phase is to remove the old, crumbling mortar in stages by raking and cleaning out the joints in the brickwork. This is a laborious procedure where the old mortar and any dust or loose debris must be carefully removed to provide a good bonding surface for the new mortar. The repointers will be especially careful around doors, windows and openings where movement in the brickwork or an excess of mortar can cause difficulties in opening and closing them.

To avoid the fresh mortar drying out too rapidly, the walls will be dampened before the new pointing is started. This slower drying time stops the mortar from cracking and becoming inflexible, which can create a weakened joint. Any excess mortar and smears that are left on the brickwork can be cleaned off once the mortar has had sufficient time for drying. The repointers will tackle the brickwork in small sections, pointing and cleaning each one as they go along before moving on to a new area.

During this stage the need for any brick replacement, chimney repairs or lead flashing work will be completed by your contractor.

Tuckpointing Teignmouth

Exactly What is Tuck Pointing? Where brickwork is old or battered, tuck pointing (or tuckpointing) is a process for repointing unstable and crumbling mortar. To give the impression that they are in perfect condition, it is an approach which is used to aesthetically accentuate the look of walls.

Firstly, the crumbling, old mortar is raked out and removed, and this is then replaced with a new coloured mortar which matches the colour of the stone or brick in the wall. Then a narrow line of (usually lighter) mortar which is contrasting in colour is applied, giving the appearance that the formerly wide and untidy joints are neat and even.

The results of tuck-pointing can be quite eye-catching, particularly when viewed from a distance, and can dramatically enhance the visual appearance of a wall without the requirement for disruptive renovations.
