What is pointing and why is it important?

Pointing is the technique used in repairing jointing between bricks. When aging mortar joints crack and disintegrate, the damaged mortar is removed by hand or with a tool and then restored with fresh mortar, preferably with the same type as the original.

The importance of pointing to a properties ability to hold in heat cannot be underestimated! If it is not taken care of, it will allow:

  • external cold air and rainwater inside the property resulting in mould and damp spots
  • heat to leave the property irrespective of the internal temperature
  • movement of the brickwork
  • increase the properties carbon footprint

Missing pointing especially around windows and doors is particularly an issue as they are prone to heat loss.

Brick restoration refers to restoring both the aesthetic of the brick all while fixing the protective properties. Considering that each house or building is different, each project varies slightly. The common issues that need to be addressed are wear, fading and decay.

A more simple approach but also an effective way to regain the visual appeal of a building is to use brick tinting. Kevin Nye Brickwork and Pointing use the best products matched with the latest techniques to ensure that the replaced or repaired bricks now match the rest of your property.
