You must remember that any structure is only as sturdy as the bricks and mortar which hold it together. If the mortar is in a bad condition with gaps, holes or crumbling areas, then draughts and damp can get into your house and cause many problems to the structure's integrity. How do you know when your house in Yatton needs repointing?

Repointing Yatton Somerset (BS49)

Quite simply, you need to take a good look at the state of the mortar and bricks of your outside walls. If you discover damaged areas or spots which look different to the remainder of the building, you may need to speak to a professional repointing company for a more thorough investigation. In sections such as under eaves or on chimneys it may be necessary for a professional to check, however you should be able to see for yourself in most cases the physical warning signs of degradation.

Damaged mortar does not only look terrible, it can lead to questions of safety as well. The overall strength of your Yatton property depends on the condition of the mortar, and badly crumbling areas can adversely have an impact on this. Any weakness in the construction can make a dwelling unstable with severe implications and perhaps even a risk to the life of inhabitants.

If bricks have been weakened or damaged over time and are the cause of problems with your mortar joints they might need to be replaced. Any defective brickwork discovered during the inspection by the repointing specialist will be repaired or replaced before any repointing takes place.

If the external brick walls of your Yatton home have been painted or plastered over in the past you could see patches that are prone to damp or discoloured. If you see flaking, bubbling or cracks of the paint or render it could indicate more severe damage underneath. The only way to investigate an issue of this type is by hiring a professional brickwork and repointing company who will find the root cause behind the damage. A competent repointing company in Yatton will easily achieve this and help to keep your home in the best possible condition.


Repointing is a lengthy process and may entail working at considerable height, subject to your property type. To permit a repointing specialist to accurately evaluate the restorative work required on your home they will firstly have to undertake a visual survey. This will allow them to give you a quotation for the repointing work. It is always wise to get quotations from different repointing specialists in Yatton and study the levels of service that each of them provides.

A further site survey could be required once you accept a quotation and might involve the use of ladders, or perhaps even a scaffold, to gain access to hard to reach parts of your house. This second, more stringent survey may uncover different problem areas that might have an effect on the first estimate. If you have an older house in Yatton which is over sixty years old, it is much more likely to need restorative repointing work than a more modern property.

Repointing Quotes Yatton Somerset

Once any issues have been identified then work can start. Even single storey buildings and bungalows might need some form of scaffolding to provide a sturdy platform for your repointing team to work from. Some form of protective shielding or sheeting will then be attached to the exterior of the scaffold. This could be in the way of polythene sheeting to trap any dust and debris that is generated during the repair work.

Any external cables, such as TV or satellite, will be removed from the walls and piping may be removed or adjusted to allow access to the brickwork behind. This is only a temporary measure and they'll be replaced back in their appropriate position when all work has been finished.

To allow the repointing team to get to the bricks and mortar of your external walls, any paint, pebble-dash or rendering will now have to be removed before work may start. The brickwork behind these outer coverings will be sanded and cleaned to ensure a uniform finish for your exterior walls.

Brick Repointing Near Yatton (BS49)

If you haven't decided upon a finishing style (Recessed, Flush, Weather Struck or Tuck pointing), or you would like to see how the different pointing options look on your home, a competent Yatton repointing contractor will be able to produce a test panel on your property. This should allow you to visualise the finished result and make sure you are satisfied with regard to colour and style.

The joints are now raked out to take away the old, crumbling mortar and clear the gaps between the bricks. This is an extremely time consuming process and entails the chipping or grinding away of old mortar and brushing away all the dust and loose debris to provide a clean surface for the application of new mortar. Any door and window openings will be given extra attention by the repointers to prevent any surplus applications of mortar or distortions of the frames which can cause issues with their closing and opening.

Something that should be avoided is the rapid drying out of the new mortar, and this can be averted by dampening down the walls. This keeps the mortar flexible and allows it to dry at a slower pace to avoid cracking, which can lead to a weakened joint. When it is sufficiently dry the time has come to clean up any excess mortar and smears from the adjoining bricks. The walls will be split into areas, and each one in turn will be repointed, left to dry, and then cleaned up before the repointers move on to a new section of wall.

It is possible that as the repointers are doing their work they could find damaged bricks that need replacing, or perhaps issues with a chimney stack or faulty lead flashing, and an experienced repointer will be in a position to carry out these repairs as they go along.

Chimney Repointing Yatton (BS49)

Once the whole of the building has been repointed and cleaned, and if you would like to recover the walls with rendering or repaint the bricks, then that will now be completed. After the cables and pipes have been put back in position the scaffolding will be dismantled and all the waste and debris disposed of.

The repointing of your house by a reputable Yatton contractor should mean you won't need to worry yourself about your exterior brickwork for another fifty to sixty years.
