Brickwork Pointing

North East Pointing and Repointing Brickwork Services

Having your brickwork pointed or repointed as necessary can save you a lot of inconvenience further down the line

Every home, at some point, will require some brickwork maintenance – whether it be pointing or repointing. The typically adverse weather in the North East makes this unavoidable.

However, monitoring your brickwork does not have to be arduous. By regularly carrying out some simple checks on your brickwork, you can determine whether it requires any maintenance.

Should you struggle to assess whether your brickwork genuinely needs this maintenance, we invite you to get in touch with us at Findley Roofing & Building. We can provide first-class advice and even come out to inspect the brickwork for you – both free of charge.

If you’re unsure whether your property requires brickwork repointing, simply get in touch to arrange a free, no obligation quote or brickwork health check.

Signs indicating a potential need for pointing or repointing

One strong sign that your brickwork requires pointing or repointing is visible cement in small pieces around the base of the brickwork, from which the cement will have fallen.

If you are unsure whether this is cement or dirt, run your finger along the gaps in the brickwork. If the brickwork is loose or cement is missing, repointing is required. Upper levels of the brickwork also require regular checks, which can be difficult without external help.

Our team here at Findley Roofing & Building can provide this help. We provide strictly first-class North East roofing services from time-served tradesmen who are well-rounded in all aspects of chimney repair work.

We will fully inspect your brickwork’s current condition and if any pointing is required, we will show you where and how it is affecting your walls. If your brickwork requires more than pointing, we will show you the affected areas and explain why this treatment is necessary.
