To maintain dry and healthy interiors to property and buildings it is important to allow walls to breath and allow water and moisture to escape easily.
If you have had previous repointing work carried out using cement mortar which has resulted in the deterioration of the wall then we are able to repoint the damaged area with lime mortar which will once again return the brickwork to it’s former healthy state.
For all your lime pointing Clitheroe and the Ribble Valley do not hesitate to contact us for a free no obligation brick wall restoration quotation.
Lime pointing is very important as it will stop water entering weathered brickwork and masonry units which prolongs the life of the brickwork.
Over time, weathering caused by frost and salt dissolution decays the brickwork joints allowing water ingress which will damage and weaken the structure.
This weathering can also cause damp inside the property which will cause flaking paint and wall paper peeling off walls. Dampness within property can also be a health hazard over time.
Repointing is the process of renewing the pointing or mortar joints between bricks which are the external mortar joints in masonry and brickwork construction.
Repointing is also called pointing or pointing-up, these terms really refer to the final steps in new construction.
We do offer a quick fix patch up service which fills in any missing pointing in small damages areas rather than have to repointing the complete walls of properties and buildings.
