Benefits of Brick Pointing

 

We specialise in professional mortar replacement that is the process of removing the old, deteriorating and decayed mortar and replacing it with new mortar. Give your house a fresh new look and restore it to its original integrity that increases its longevity..

Tuckpointing

 

Tuckpointing is where two contrasting colours of mortar are used in brickwork to give the impression of fine joints. One colour will match the bricks and the other colour will be a contrasting colour (such as white or black). This contrasting colour will create a fine joint which gives an impression of perfectly gauged brickwork. In order to achieve this, the original mortar is removed before applying the two new mortars.

Repointing

 

Repointing is needed when the existing mortar is deteriorated and decayed; basically like white dust falling out of the mortar joints. This is caused by weathering and decay that cause voids in the joints between masonry units, usually in bricks, allowing water to enter. This can cause significant damage through frost and salt dissolution and deposition.

Wall Tie

Wall ties, or tie in a cavity wall, is used to tie the internal and external walls constructed of bricks or cement blocks together. This is an essential element in the stability of a cavity wall.

Improper installation may lead to water damage or fungus formation within the cavity, leading to structural and health hazards. Wall ties are exposed to water and chemical attack from cement which requires the installation of new ties.

Our professionals use a dry-fix method to retie the outer brick with the internal brick.

Crack Repair

Cracked brick can occur which can be unsightly and spoil and otherwise solid property. To fix this, a crack is best stablised by bonding HeliBar (helical stainless steel bars) into appropriate bed joints or cut slots that go into bricks, blocks or stonework with HeliBond cementitious grout. Tensile loads are redistributed along the masonry to minimise further developments of the crack which may occur with simple injection methods.
