Repointing houses and brickwork why we do need it and why it is so important to get the repointing replacement mix right.
The pointing is the mortar around the brick and it comes in different colours and has different thickness called bed joints (Horizontal) and perpendicular joints (Vertical).
The mortar joints do several things one, mortar joints are the outer face of the mortar bed which binds together bricks / stone it holds your house together. Secondly, it’s the joints and beds that allow moisture to evaporate from the face of the wall instead of the face of the brick / stone which leads to spalling.
Be Dri can reduce dust and mess with a Dustless Extraction System
