Brick re-pointing work is also undertaken and we can either patch up small areas of brickwork or whole scale re-pointing. Combined with our brick clean service we can make brickwork look as good as new. We offer a variety of pointing styles and always offer samples prior to works commencing.
Removal of the old mortar is carried out using an angle grinder fitted with a 5" diamond disc.
Mortar is removed to a depth approximately twice the width of the gap between the courses of brickwork - for example a gap of 9mm between the brickwork would mean mortar is removed to a depth of approximately 18mm.
From areas behind pipes and hard to get to places mortar is remove using a hammer and chisel. Once grinding is complete all debris is cleaned up and disposed of, before all elevations are hosed down ready for re-pointing.
Mortar is mixed depending on type of brickwork being re-pointed, as different types of brickwork require a different ratio of sand and cement mix and colour.
Mortar is bedded into the perpends (vertical and cross joints) first using a dotter (small pointing trowel) and pressed into the bedding joints above and below the perpends. The bed joint (horizontal joint) is then run using a large pointing trowel and bonded into the perpends.
As the mortar starts to dry out the joints already filled are tooled or cut according to the type of joint used and all loose material brushed away with a soft brush.
