Roof Repointing

Roof Repointing


Re-pointing the original bricks is done on the joints horizontally and also vertically. The mortar joints may be ineffective and warped. This kind of job can be corrected by repointing the existing cement. This work has to be done delicately to damaging the existing brick surfaces. The dried and defective mortar from the joints is hacked out carefully.

Before roof repointing work can begin on the existing brickwork, any defective bricks should also be removed and replaced. This will ensure it will look clean and tidy to the eye. The existing brickwork should also be checked for other defects before chipping out the loose mortar. The majority of defects include horizontal cracks, vertical cracking, porous, missing or loose mortar.

The mortar is mixed and applied to the open joints. The mixture should not be to wet nor to stiff. A small trowel is used for putting the mortar carefully into the joints. The mortar should be allowed to ooze out slightly onto the brick wall. A soft bristled hand brush is used to remove the excess mortar. The process is repeated on the entire wall or chimney surface.
