Is your commercial or domestic building in need of pointing?
Pointing needs to be replaced every 20 to 30 years and in some extreme cases a lot sooner.
The first thing when pointing any building walls etc. is to make sure that all of the old pointing has been removed from all joints and that the required depth has been established.
The average depth is between 12mm to 25mm but this also depends on the tightness of the joint between the brickwork. The tighter the joint between the brickwork means that less depth can be achieved.
Joints to be ground out to the required depth and re-point to leave joints neatly finished.
There are various types of pointing methods that can be employed for stone and brickwork . Weather struck, flush and bucket handle are just some of the methods used.
The grinding out method can be performed with a mechanical disc, raking tools or even chisels to insure that none of the brick is damaged in the process.
Different types of sand, cement, coloured mortar and even coloured dye can all make the difference to the end result.
