Repointing projects PDF Print E-mail

Surprising as it may seem, a high percentage of our workload is involved in the repointing of relatively new buildings (less than seven years old). We regularly replace mortar that is of inadequate strength (cement weak), incorrectly laid or finished, or is the wrong colour.

The sooner inadequate mortar is detected and replaced the better overal job will result. Mortar replacement may require extensive installation of scaffolding and other access provions with the attendant impact on access and landscaping. Attending to defficient mortar quickly will also head off any subsequent structural defects that may occur as a result of ignoring mortar faults and allowing degradation to continue.

This partial list of new buildings repointed is presented as a representative sample of the nature and extent of repointing projects undertaken.

  • New home repointed with new mortar.Airport West.  40 Hart St. Repoint entire house. Raked joint finish with natural mortar colour.  Modern red blend.
