What Is Brick Pointing?

Pointing is the finishing of masonry mortar joints in stone or brick. Mortar is the material that holds bricks together. This material must be replaced periodically, as it does not have a long lifespan. When we repoint brick, we remove deteriorated mortar from the masonry wall joints and replace it with fresh mortar. This process helps maintain the masonry’s integrity and keeps the building in attractive condition.

What Causes Brick And Mortar To Deteriorate?

The mortar joints in exposed masonry take damage from weathering and erosion. Wind, pollution, and water infiltration adversely affect mortar, slowly wearing it away over time. An uneven settlement of the building’s foundation can cause cracks in the mortar.

Freezing temperatures also cause mortar deterioration. Low temperatures cause any water that has penetrated masonry to freeze and expand, breaking the mortar apart.
