POINTING & GRINDING
Why you might need your house Reponited:
Pointing is the mortar around bricks in a wall that holds the structure and ensures weatherproofing. Bricks are built to last hundreds of years.
The mortar surrounding them, however, is sadly not. This ‘pointing’ will need a little TLC from time to time. Aside from helping to hold up your house, mortar protects against water ingress and.helps prevent heat loss through the walls. After rain, water can freeze in the bricks and surrounding mortar, expanding and causing damage.
This freeze-thaw weathering does not look good and ignoring damaged or substandard mortar could lead to a damp and cold house. If you can see gaps in the mortar surrounding bricks, it’s time to think about repointing.
