BRICK RESTORATION: GROUTING OR REPOINTING

In the mason’s trade, the correct wording for brick restoration is ‘pointing’ when dealing with the joints of a new wall or ‘repointing’ when dealing with repair work. restoration of a building.

Why repoint masonry?

Masonry joints allow materials (brick, stone, etc.) to stay together and form a solid whole. Loss and cracking of joints allows water to enter the structure and can cause considerable damage with infiltration and freezing.

Weak joints can therefore endanger the durability of an otherwise solid construction.

BRICK POINTING

It is possible to restore some masonry work such as a brick wall by removing the mortar between the bricks and laying new materials: this is repointing work.

This work costs less than redoing a wall, but it involves risks: removing the mortar weakens a wall during the duration of the work, especially since it is often old brick walls.

It is important that a certified mason undertakes this work for safety during the work and when the work is completed.

A good mason works meticulously so that the masonry with its new joints is durable and aesthetically pleasing.

MASONRY STONE REPOINTING

As for repointing a brick wall, a stone wall requires a study of the wall to determine the alterations to be made and to find the missing elements.

Moreover, since the facade of a building greatly influences its appearance, a good mason will take into consideration the color of the mortar to match the color with the stone, either going unnoticed or creating a contrast between the colors.
