Money Well Spent
Deterioration of mortar between your brickwork can be caused by water, sun, acids in the rain, changing temperatures, building settlement, impact damage, air pollution and dirt. Damaged/deteriorated joints commonly cause waterproofing and structural problems if left unrepaired.
Tuckpointing and Repointing the brickwork are two highly effective ways of assisting structural integrity and decreasing water/moisture entry into brickwork. Stuctural integrity aside, the major reason many homeowners Re-Tuckpoint and/or Re-Point the brickwork of their house is purely for its aesthetic value.
There is nothing better than a period home that looks loved, and the brickwork of your period home often represents up to 70% of the visible surface area. Restoring the brickwork of your home either by Tuckpointing or Re-pointing, will add considerable value. Brickwork with deteriorated mortar and subsequent”questionable”structural integrity can seriously affect your homes value. Restoring your brickwork, either by Tuckpointing or Re-Pointing can revive the brickwork to “as new” condition and will often add 2 to 3 times the financial outlay to the overall value of your home. Just look at some of the “before and after” photos in our gallery.
Restoring the brickwork on your home is well and truly, money well spent!
