Protect and preserve your traditional property

Most houses and buildings built before 1919 were made using traditional mass-masonry techniques, meaning they need special care and attention to keep them in perfect condition. Houses built this way will have solid walls rather than cavities, meaning moisture needs to be able to pass through the brickwork. Lime mortar pointing allows for this breathability, meaning excess moisture can escape easily, preventing damages caused by damp or freezing conditions.

At PointUK our team has over 50 years’ experience in lime mortar pointing and understands the special care properties that use traditional construction methods require. If you’ve noticed damage to your mortar or brickwork, contact us today to arrange a free no obligation quote.

  • What's the process?
    At PointUK we remove the decaying mortar with specialist grinding equipment, including professional dust extractors that produce 90% less mess. This enables a consistent grind depth, which cannot be achieved with traditional methods. Once all the aged mortar has been removed, the area that has been ground out is then sprayed and cleaned down to remove any residue left over. This also helps the new mortar to bond better as it slows down the drying process. This is especially important with traditional lime mortar methods to prevent cracking. We use state-of-the-art cordless pointing guns to fill and compress new mortar into the joints. This method is more efficient, cleaner and leaves a better finish.
  • How do I know if my property needs repointing?
    There are several signs that indicate your property may need repointing. Here are some common indicators: 1. Cracks in the mortar: If you notice cracks in the mortar between your bricks or stonework, it may be a sign that the mortar is no longer holding the bricks or stones together properly. This can lead to further damage to the property if not addressed. 2. Loose or missing mortar: If you can easily remove or pull out the mortar from between your bricks or stonework, it is likely that the mortar has become weakened and needs to be replaced. 3. Water damage: If you see water stains on the walls or ceilings, this may be a sign that the mortar has deteriorated, allowing water to penetrate the walls. This can lead to dampness, mould, and even structural damage. 4. Drafts: If you feel drafts or cold spots in your property, this may be a sign that the mortar has degraded and is no longer insulating your property properly. 5. Age of the property: If your property is over 50 years old and has never been repointed, it's a good idea to have a professional inspect the mortar. Even if you don't see any visible signs of damage, the mortar may have degraded over time and be in need of replacement. If you notice any of these signs, it's important to contact PointUK to assess the condition of your property and determine if repointing is necessary. Repointing can prevent further damage to your property and help maintain its structural integrity for years to come.
