What is Pointing?
Pointing is the process of replacing deteriorating mortar in the joints of a masonry wall with new mortar. Obvious signs of deterioration signal the need for pointing. These signs include disintegrating mortar, cracks in mortar joints, loose bricks or stones, damp walls, or damaged plaster-work.
It is critical that a skilled craftsman, specializing in brick and stone pointing is hired to execute the work. This will insure that the visual and physical integrity of the masonry remain intact. Improperly mixed mortar will detract from the appearance of the structure and cause physical damage to the masonry itself.
