Gaps in mortar caused over time by weathering and decay not only look undesirable but can let inwater, which through constant freezing/thawing and salt deposition can cause long-term significant damage.
Why use professionals?
Poor or home-DIY re-pointing work can do more harm than good. Invariably it won?t look great and can often raise the level of the mortar joint above the face of the masonry, causing the mortar edge to feather and bricks to degrade. Don?t take a chance with your brickwork!
Why use Precision Pointing & Property Repairs?
It is essential that mortar used for re-pointing has similar performance characteristics (permeability, compressive strength, and proper thermal expansion properties) to the original mortar used in a building. We can design new mortar to match the colour and texture of existing mortar, to produce a professional finish. Removal of mortar joints are always done with great care to avoid damage to brickwork.
Mortar is injected into the joint, filling it from the back, to the front, ensuring that there are no air gaps. Certain depths are filled in several passes and the mortar allowed to cure for at least 24 hours.
