When mortar starts cracking, receding, and falling out of the joints, it’s time to chisel out the old stuff and trowel in the new, a process called repointing. This is done by our expert brick works repair and build team with care, using the right tools and the right materials to avoid damaging the brick and permanently compromising the integrity and appearance of the wall. If you live in an old brick home or have part of your house repointing is an essential service you will require from us especially if you have a home over 15 years old. Over time, as your soft old brick swells and shrinks against the rock-hard mortar, the bond between them will break, moisture will get trapped in the wall, and the brick faces will start popping off. Our Expert masons who have years of experience in Brick work repair and build can analyze old mortar and make a compatible mix and get a custom blend with the same color and characteristics. Our masons choose between hydraulic lime which comes in bags and hardens when it reacts with water, much like portland cement, and lime putty mortar, which comes in buckets and slowly hardens by reacting with carbon dioxide in the air. The final work is a perfectly strong bond between brick and mortar. We also wash and clean the brick to give it that new look. Your brick work will be good as new yet maintaining its original appeal as you had it installed or built from day one.
