5 Major Advantages of Brick Pointing

R&K Fuchshofer


Though your home’s brickwork is a very visible part of your property, you

might still fail to notice that it’s time to have your brickwork re-pointed.

Brick repointing is one of the most effective ways of restoring the physical

appearance and the condition of the building structure.


Let’s take a deeper look at some of the major

advantages of brick pointing

• It Helps Protect The Surface Area

• Did you know that as per the Homebuilding & Renovating reports; mortar

alone can compromise about 15% of the brickwork’s surface area. Thus,

the standard of the mortar can have a significant impact on the overall

quality of the wall.

Brick Repointing can be a crucial procedure for helping to keep the quality

intact – because the mortar age more quickly than the bricks. This is a sign

of the mortar’s softness that protects the bricks from the worst effects of

erosion and weathering.

• Enhance Aesthetic Appeal

• Your brickwork definitely needs to good look. However, sloppily applied

brickwork can stain the look of your walls even if the actual bricks are in

isolation, visibly immaculate. The kind of inept application can too easily

happen if, for instance, the mortar is spread across the bricks or too much

mortar is used. However, repointing done well is capable of giving your

elevation allure in both its shadow and texture.


Let’s take a deeper look at some of the major

advantages of brick pointing.

• Prevent Leaks And Damp

• There’s an obvious inconvenience to having to keep leaving out buckets to

catch water that drips from a leaky ceiling or seeing damp patches forming

on a wall. However, repointing can assist you in preventing both of those

problems, as mortar issues could be to blame for them.

• If leaks and damp are constant problems in your residence, you might

think of other possible causes; however, we would urge you not to

overlook the extent to which repointing might be able to help.

• Preserving the Structure’s Integrity

• Residents of Melbourne are aware of how harsh the local weather can be.

Hence, it can wreak havoc on the standard of your home’s existing

pointing. If that does occur, then there may, over time, be the necessity of

repointing to protect the brickwork’s structural integrity


Let’s take a deeper look at some of the major

advantages of brick pointing.

• Enhance Shelf Life

• If you do deem that your brickwork requires repointing, you can rest

assured that, after this repointing has taken place, the house probably

won’t need it again for decades. In fact, a properly completed repointing

job should have effects that could last as long as 50 or 60 years.

• Besides, exterior walls one of the famous applications of brick Repointing

is the restoration of the fireplace in Melbourne.
