Does My House Need Repointing?
Your home's brickwork is a crucial element, and understanding when it needs repointing is vital. Here are some indicators that it might be time to consider repointing:
Damaged bricks are easily noticeable and shouldn't be ignored. Timely repairs or replacements are essential to maintain the structural integrity and safety of your home.
Failed or Unsuitable Pointing
In cases where the initial pointing material was not appropriate or has deteriorated, it should be replaced to prevent further damage.
This is the technical term for the ‘white stuff’ that accumulates on bricks over the years, which in its own right doesn’t actually pose a threat to the structural integrity of your home. Nevertheless, it can be unsightly to say the least and take a toll on your home’s visual appeal.
General Cracks and Decay
Cracking, flaking, decaying, or missing pointing should be addressed promptly to prevent further deterioration.
What Are the Benefits of Brickwork Repointing?
Brickwork repointing is technically a routine preventative maintenance job, but this doesn’t mean it cannot be beneficial in a variety of ways. Just as long as you hire skilled craftsmen to get the job done properly, you’ll benefit from the following by repointing your home:
Pointing often accounts for as much as 15% of the total surface area of a brick wall. It’s therefore essential to ensure that the pointing in your walls provides adequate protection for your home as a whole.
Quality pointing can also bring additional visual appeal to the exterior of your home, which could in turn make a difference to its market value. All from a comparatively affordable exterior improvement project.
Keeping the exterior elements at bay and protecting your interiors from damp calls for durable and reliable pointing. For obvious reasons, these are the kinds of issues that should be avoided in the first place, rather than allowing them to pose a threat to your home.
Depending on the quality of the compound used and how it is applied, pointing has the potential to last for over 60 years, when done correctly. Hence, it represents an extremely cost-effective investment in the safety and appeal of your home.

Bricks are amongst one of the sturdiest and most durable of building materials. But even it and the mortar which holds it together can be worn down over time because of environmental factors.
