Protecting the fabric of your property

Pointing is a very specialist skill. It is a very important part of the construction of a building or any brick structure. Its main objective is to help keep water out of the building. There is a big difference between good pointing and bad pointing. Pointing can, if correctly carried out give a good aesthetic lift to the building and remain functional, add value to the property and generally enhance the building. Pointing that has not been carried out correctly can devalue the property and could cause the reverse.

As well as being unsightly, failed or damaged pointing can lead to more severe problems such as damp penetration, frost damage and even collapse. The appropriate selection of materials is critical and should be left to professionals. We ensure that the correct material is used and that the final finish matches the existing mortar
