How important is pointing?

During the lifetime of a property, the mortar will eventually be eroded away and begin to let water in through the brickwork. This is why repointing a property is crucial. Carrying out these touch ups, will prevent you getting into a mess with leaks and broken bricks.

The erosion process that crumbles away the cement between the bricks, allows water to seep through the brickwork. As this water is soaked through into the bricks, the particles of the brick structure begin to dissolve, and as cold weather begins, the water will freeze. The freezing of the water inside the bricks, then cause issues such as cracked and broken bricks.

We advise you inspect the state of your property regularly, in order to catch eroded mortar before it begins to let water seep into the brickwork. If you happen to notice the cement has crumbled away, it is a strong indication that a bit of pointing is needed.

Many people don't like to attempt pointing themselves as it is such a time consuming and can be a messy task. If this is something you would like us to do on your behalf, visit our pointing services in Rotherham webpage for more information on what we can do for you.

Perhaps you are a DIY minded person and would like to have a go at pointing yourself? If so, we urge you please follow the steps in this guide: http://www.ehow.com/how_4531228_point-large-brick-wall.html
