Brick Pointing Services
When you are looking at a beautiful brick wall, the focus is generally on the brick alone. However, while bricks are durable and solid, it is the mortar used to join and affix the bricks that keep the layer together.
What Are Brick Pointing Services?
Brick pointing refers to techniques used to repair mortar joints between masonry elements. Mortar is a mixture of a sandy material with water and cement that is used to bond bricks, tiles, stone, and other materials. These mortar joints, unlike bricks, will disintegrate and crack after long-term wear and tear and needs to be removed by hand or using tools and replaced with new mortar.
Benefits of Hiring Professional Brick Pointing Services
There are many guides online for you to try brick pointing yourself, however, it isn’t as easy as it seems. Firstly, the composition of the fresh mortar should preferably be the same as the original mortar used to ensure that adhesion can take place smoothly and securely. Secondly, defective points can be hard to find as they might not necessarily be visible on the exterior. Furthermore, adjacent mortar points can also be affected even if they are not necessarily defective yet. This means that depending on the situation, the entire wall or possibly, even the entire structure could need to be pointed. Lastly, the mortar must be applied in thin layers and packed in an airtight manner before being smoothed into the final concave, finished surface.
Tuck-pointing can also be an option if additional decorative elements are requested for the mortar design.
When Do You Need Brick Pointing Services?
Brick pointing is necessary for anyone who wants to have beautiful brick siding. This is an essential part of ensuring the durability of both the brick and the installation. If the mortar used in the joints has completely disappeared or started to wear thin, the bricks may be loose enough to move around. In the worst-case scenario, this structural damage can easily hurt your home, or someone walking past. Hiring professional brick pointing services will ensure that you have better quality mortar this time round and can rest with peace of mind that your beautiful brick siding will remain at its best for years to come.
