When you need an expert in repointing brickwork, Blake Pointing is the only call you need to make. Here are a few of our more popular services:
Pointing is the masonry term for the material (usual cement or mortar) used to join bricks and stones when constructing a building. Should the pointing deteriorate or become damaged, the structural integrity of the building is put at risk, not to mention the increased change of water entering the property. By repointing brickwork, we repair the damaged mortar, making the wall safe and secure once more.
Tuck pointing involves using two different-coloured mortars when joining the brickwork. With one mortar matching the surrounding bricks and the other usually a lighter shade, the result is that the wall appears to be held together by a very thin layer of cement. It’s a stylistic effect that requires specialist tuck pointing irons and an expert in repointing brickwork to get right.
Heritage buildings and listed buildings were usually erected using lime mortar as their pointing, rather than the cement we use today. Since modern cement formulae could possibly damage the original stone or brickwork, our team of specialist revert to traditional lime mortar when repointing brickwork on historical buildings.
