However, it is not easy to find contractors that specialize in brickwork. Here at Affordable Home Services, we are proud to provide repointing brickwork services in addition to other brick-related services. We also provide tuckpointing and brick replacement. However, our repointing service is particularly popular. All of our brickwork services are provided in a thorough, timely, and reliable manner.
Our Repointing Brick Services
Most people have heard of repointing in passing yet do not fully understand what it means. In short, repointing is a process that involves the careful repair of masonry joints within brick homes and other buildings made of brick. This type of project is particularly challenging, necessitating the attention of those who have extensive experience working with brick. Repointing requires the careful removal of mortar that has been damaged. This compromised mortar is subsequently replaced with brand new mortar.
The purpose of our brick repointing service is to enhance the building’s resistance to water and moisture while simultaneously improving its appearance. We also perform waterproofing and leak diagnosis. Most people are curious as to when to repoint brickwork to make the optimal impact. If you notice any water is moving through your bricks or if you suspect there is a leak, do not hesitate to ask our team for assistance. Fail to address the leak and your home’s structural integrity will be compromised. Our team is here to pinpoint the source of the problem and waterproof the entirety of your bricks to ensure your home or other building remains completely dry.
In addition to repointing internal brickwork and waterproofing brick, we also perform tuckpointing. Tuckpointing involves mortaring of bricks to make them look as though they have fine joints. This process decreases the amount of mortar that is visible. Take a look at a home before and after it is tuckpointed and you will agree it looks that much better after the tuckpointing is performed.
We Embrace the Challenge of Repointing Brick
Repointing brick and stone is much more challenging than most people assume. Though few know it, the truth is masonry work has the potential to compromise or even destroy old homes. The bottom line is you need the professionals to perform brick or stone repointing at your home, regardless of its age. The alternative is to lean on those who lack experience who have the potential to attempt repointing that eventually backfires to the point that it damages the home’s structural integrity.
The quality of your brick repointing service provider is particularly important if your home was built decades ago. The last thing you want is for a shoddy repointing service to result in a weakening of your home’s structural integrity. Even if your home is made of wood or another non-brick material, you can likely benefit from our brick repointing service. Most homes have some brick, often in the form of a chimney or foundation wall. In some cases, homes have decorative bricks placed on the exterior while the bulk of the building’s construction is wood. We also repoint interior brick fireplace units to boot.
The bottom line is masonry on homes will only last so long. The mortar between bricks and stone gradually deteriorates, causing cracks to develop and move on in, ultimately weakening the structure. The result of this weakening combined with the freezing and thawing cycle may eventually lead to loosened bricks and stone.
