An essential service that lasts

Over time, weather, wear and decay can accumulate to cause gaps in the joints between your brickwork and mortar. Pointing and repointing is the essential process of repairing this damage and keeping your property in peak condition for longer.

Brickwork repointing should be carried out roughly every 30 to 50 years, although there are external factors that can accelerate the need to have your brickwork repointed. These can include the following:

  • Coastal areas prone to significant salt spray from the sea
  • Buildings that are regularly exposed to storms
  • High altitude, elevated buildings
  • Properties built with a weak sand and cement mix

However, every single property in the East Coast of Ireland including Dublin will require brickwork maintenance at some point. With weather patterns increasingly tough to predict, and buildings constructed over time and with varying levels of expertise, pointing or repointing will become essential for every property owner

Where Our expertise comes in

When brickwork repointing recedes by more than 5-10mm, this is a good, early indication that your property needs to be repointed. Water that runs against the brickwork can be absorbed by the porous mortar joint, potentially causing significant dampness and internal cavity damage if left untreated.

Regularly carrying out these checks yourself can help you to determine whether you require any maintenance right now, or may do sooner rather than later. However, if you remain unsure, we’re more than happy to come to you and offer you our expert advice.

As well as our hands-on experience and eagle-eyed attention to brickwork detail, we offer a full brickwork restoration service, the details of which you can find in this simple, time-tested, step-by-step process, carefully designed to save you time and trouble further down the line.
