Brickwork Repair


Brickwork repairs can be carried out in multiple ways to fix a long list of small and serious problems. Replacing mortar in a brick wall when damaged can improve its long-term integrity, just as much as replacing cracked and damaged bricks at an early stage is always the best way.

Brickwork in general is extremely durable and hardwearing, though will eventually give in to the tests of time and bad weather. Therefore, we highly recommend frequent property inspections, to detect instances where brickwork wall repairs may be needed.

Some examples of these include the following:

Cracked and Damaged Brickwork

A few cracked or damaged bricks may not seem much to worry about but could also indicate an issue with the structure of your brick wall. you must understand that brick wall crack repair costs are far cheaper than rebuilding the full wall if the problem is left to get worse. Repairing cracked and damaged bricks is very simple and cost-effective, just as long as the problem is caught at an early enough stage.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is brickwork pointing?
    Brickwork pointing, also known as brick jointing or repointing, is the process of renewing the mortar joints between bricks in a masonry wall. It involves removing deteriorated or damaged mortar and replacing it with fresh mortar to strengthen the wall, improve its appearance, and protect it from weathering.
  • Why is brickwork pointing necessary?
    Over time, the mortar between bricks can degrade due to weather exposure, temperature changes, and other environmental factors. Pointing is necessary to maintain the structural integrity of the wall and prevent moisture penetration, which can lead to further damage and deterioration.
  • When should brickwork pointing be done?
    Brickwork pointing should be done when the mortar joints show signs of deterioration, such as crumbling, cracking, or gaps. Additionally, if you notice water seepage through the wall or loose bricks, it's a clear sign that repointing is needed.
  • How is brickwork pointing done?
    Brickwork pointing involves the following steps: a. Remove the old mortar from between the bricks using appropriate tools. b. Clean the joints and remove debris. c. Prepare the mortar mix, ensuring it matches the existing mortar in composition and color. d. Apply the fresh mortar into the joints using pointing trowels or specialized tools. e. Shape the mortar to achieve the desired pointing style (flush, recessed, tuck-pointing, etc.). f. Clean any excess mortar from the bricks' surface. g. Allow the mortar to cure properly.
  • What are the different types of brickwork pointing?
    Several types of brickwork pointing techniques include flush pointing, recessed pointing, tuck pointing, bucket handle pointing, struck pointing, V pointing, beaded pointing, grapevine pointing, ribbon pointing, and others.
  • How long does brickwork pointing last?
    The longevity of brickwork pointing depends on various factors, including the quality of materials used, weather conditions, and the skill of the pointing work. Well-done pointing can last for several decades.
  • Can I do brickwork pointing myself?
    Brickwork pointing is a skilled task that requires experience and knowledge of proper techniques. While minor repairs may be possible for DIY enthusiasts, it's generally recommended to hire a professional mason for larger and more extensive repointing projects to ensure the best results.
  • How much does brickwork pointing cost?
    The cost of brickwork pointing varies depending on factors like the size of the area to be repointed, the pointing style chosen, the accessibility of the site, and the local labor rates. It's best to get quotes from multiple contractors to compare prices.
  • Does brickwork pointing require any maintenance?
    Properly done brickwork pointing should not require frequent maintenance. However, it's essential to keep an eye on the mortar joints over time and address any signs of deterioration promptly to prevent more extensive repairs.
  • Can I paint over brickwork pointing?
    While it's possible to paint over brickwork pointing, it's essential to use breathable masonry paint to avoid trapping moisture within the wall. Painting should only be done after the mortar has cured sufficiently. It's recommended to consult a professional for proper painting techniques. Remember, brickwork pointing is a crucial aspect of maintaining the integrity and appearance of masonry walls. If you have specific questions or concerns about your brickwork, it's best to consult with a qualified mason or contractor for expert advice and solutions.
