Why Repoint in bishop auckland?

A common maintenance task for brick or stone walls is the repair of mortar joints.  The life of mortar joints will vary with the exposure conditions and the mortar materials used, but a lifespan of more than 25 years is typical. The life of brick or stone, however, may well exceed 100 years.  Consequently, occasional repair of the mortar joints is expected over the life of the brick or stone wall. It is our observation that the most common reason for repointing brick masonry is to improve water penetration resistance.  Repointing deteriorated mortar joints is one of the most effective and permanent ways of decreasing water entry into brickwork.  This is because the most common means of water entry into a brick masonry wall is through debonded, cracked or deteriorated mortar joints.
