Repointing, also known as “Lime Pointing” or “Lime Mortar Pointing”. Lime Mortar Repointing is done when the mortar between the bricks is breaking down and “fretting” or decaying.

Over time, buildings become prone to wear and tear and they do need preservation to retain their structural integrity. When a building needs repointing, the use of lime products, either hydraulic or putty based is a must to correctly preserve the building. Using cement based mortars are far too hard and can damage masonry.

The use of a lime mortar for pointing in general masonry allows you to use a material that is both porous and softer compared with mortars that feature cement. This allows the moisture to evaporate from the joints more effectively which reduces the level of moisture in the fabric of the building. It can also decrease the likelihood of soluble salts appearing on the surface of the stone. Over time these salts can build up and cause the brickwork to spall or the surface to break down.

The application of lime mortars requires meticulous and careful control within the drying process.

Lime mortar is an attractive and versatile binding agent, combining water, lime and aggregate such as sand. It appeals to architects because of its ability to be colour-matched to complement existing stone and brickwork. Its effectiveness as a building material is due to its remarkable durability and longevity. This can be witnessed by viewing many long-standing lime mortar structures still visible in our British listed buildings throughout the UK.

The most common causes of masonry damage is a combination of extreme weather conditions, excess moisture and a weak mortar mix causes masonry work and mortar to break down and fall out . Both bricks and mortar are subject to fretting or crumbling.

Lack of direct sunlight means that when water enters your masonry wall it takes very long periods of time to dry. During the cold winter months, water that gets into masonry walls can sometimes freeze and expand. This can cause brick faces to fall off, mortar joints to crack, or chimney columns to crack. This all requires repointing work.

Repointing your property in Cambridge is a particularly important part of maintaining and protecting your brickwork. Failing to replace mortar when you first notice it can lead to severe structural and moisture issues including serious water leaks in your home.
Re-pointing is carried out when the existing mortar joints have broken down and started to crumble, causing holes in the brickwork or when there is structural damage such as mortar cracking or brick cracking.

Mortar pointing is required when the joints have eroded to a depth greater than the width. If you notice signs of mortar damage, it should be repointed immediately to prevent further issues and problems.


The price of repointing & restoration work varies greatly and depends on a number of factors such as, size of area, age of building, access, current condition & materials needed.
