What is brick repointing
Pointing is the term given to the ‘finish’ that is between the bricks or stone used to build your house. Depending on the age of the building, the mortar which was used to lay the stone or brick will either be made from lime, or more recently, cement. The issue of pointing is one which causes irreparable damage to older buildings if done wrongly, and it is important to understand what the mortar joints actually do for the fabric of the house.
Repointing is the process of renewing the pointing (the external part of mortar joints) in masonry construction. Over time, weathering and decay cause voids in the joints between masonry units (usually bricks), allowing the undesirable entrance of water. Water entering through these voids can cause significant damage through frost weathering and from salt dissolution and deposition. Repointing is also called pointing, or pointing up, although these terms more properly refer to the finishing step in new construction
