Repointing is needed when the existing mortar is deteriorated and decayed; basically like white dust falling out of the mortar joints. This is caused by a combination of age, weather and/or poor mortar mixes.
Procedure for repointing the joints:
Cracked brick is best stabilized by bonding HeliBar (helical stainless steel bars) into appropriate bed joints or cut slots, in bricks, blocks or stonework with HeliBond cementitious grout. Tensile loads are redistributed along the masonry to minimize further developments of the crack which may occur with simple injection methods.
If you think you have problems with rising damp we can come and investigate – identify rising damp and suggest the best solution to prevent any future problems.
We also provide the services to install new wall ties. This is needed when the
old wall ties are rusted.
Wall ties are an essential element in the stability of a cavity wall as they are used to tie the internal and external walls.
We use a dryfix method to retie the outer brick with the internal brick.
We can change the colour of your brick or mortar to help you increase the value of your property. You have a wide variety of colour choices, the benefits are:
Tuckpointing is where two contrasting colours of mortar are used in brickwork to give the impression of fine joints. One colour will match the bricks and the other colour will be a contrasting colour (such as white or black). This contrasting colour will create a fine joint which gives an impression of perfectly gauged brickwork. In order to achieve this, the original mortar is removed before applying the 2 new mortars.
