Repointing brickwork can be messy and slow work due to raking out existing brickwork joints, for the person doing this work it is a temptation to cut corners by not raking out brickwork joints deep enough.

Raking out old mortar joints creates a lot of dust and can cause a nuisance for all involved - you, your neighbours and the surrounding environment.

Joints that have not been raked out deep enough may look good on the eye, but after a few winter frosts these joints will fail.

At R.J.H. Pointing we rake joints out 12-17mm thus creating a good key to existing mortar joints. R.J.H. Pointing uses top of the range dust extraction tools, thus creating no dust - no dust means clean brickwork and a clear working area.

Joints are repointed with British standard mortar mix and applied by hand and mortar guns. Mortar guns benefit by filling all voids creating a full solid mortar joint.
