Pointing Services Acton

Our team at Mr Pointing and Brickwork at Acton have great experience with the process of Pointing. We understand the complexities of the process and are ready to help our customers, readily. Some of our customers have misconceptions about the process but our team works with them with utmost patience and helps them come to a point where the customer is satisfied. 

The process of Pointing is the action of filling the joints of the bricks with mortar. This means that the bricks tend to erode overtime due to the dreadful weather conditions and pollution around. These particles get stuck into the joints and break off the corners of the bricks. 

Our Pointing Team at Acton makes sure that a good amount and type of cement is used to fill the joints and the particles are removed properly without causing damage to the bricks. Our team considers not only the cement but also the types of bricks that have been used already, as well as the age of the building. 

If the building is relatively new, little work is needed to be done on the finishing. Whereas, if the building is older, a lot more precautions need to be taken in order to get the process of pointing right.

Repointing Acton

Our team MrPointingandBrickwork at Acton are very proper when it comes to repointing. We understand how crucial the pointing repair process is, and thus we make sure that we provide the best services to our customers. Our team consists of professionals who have special experience working with repairing pointing over the years. 

Before looking into the repairing process, it is important to understand what pointing itself is. Pointing is the outer part of mortar joints in the construction of buildings. Over the years, due to decaying and pollution, these joints tend to erode and cause voids usually between bricks, allowing water to enter. This causes weathering which is the eventual breaking down of these bricks and rocks used. 

Before starting the process of pointing, our Pointing Repair Services team at Acton, first identifies what the problem is. If the problem is only small cracks inside the bricks, then it is better to leave it be and not repoint. However, if there are large cracks in the mortar, it is best to not try to fix that as that may cause more damage to the mortar and eventually to the building. 

Chimney Repair Acton

A chimney is perhaps the most commonly known exhaust of the building. Our team at Mr Pointing and Brickwork understands that the chimney is more complicated than it seems and is actually a machine for generating airflow. Just like any other machine, it also asks for care which most of the people do not provide as it is thought to be a mere portal with brick sills. 

Contrary to popular belief, there are in fact a lot of things that could go wrong with the chimneys that not only affect the chimney’s process but also the bricks and mortar of the chimney. Most people believe that all their problems would be solved by merely cleaning the chimney from the inside, when that is not the case. 

One of the biggest issues with chimneys is the mortar getting damaged. This is because the weather conditions and pollution cause erosion of the bricks from the outside forming cracks in the bricks. Furthermore, rainfall causes the bricks to eventually become weak which can cause the chimney to fall out suddenly. Our Pointing Services team at Acton makes sure that the mortar from the outside is cleaned and any particles or faulty conditions removed, bringing the chimneys back into their normal condition.
