Professional Mortar Pointing

Ensure your investment remains sound with professional restoration services. Brick and Mortar Restoration in Perth are industry experts when it comes to mortar pointing, this is the process whereby the external mortar joints in your brickwork are renewed. This is a necessary maintenance task for many brickwork structures in Perth as they tend to be susceptible to fretting.

WHAT CAUSES IT?

Fretting is caused when weathering and natural decay causes voids to open in the mortar. Once the water has entered the brickwork, it can cause significant damage through a number of processes including salt dissolution and deposition. If mortar pointing isn’t performed to minimise this damage, the brickwork will become unsound and will cost thousands of dollars to fix.

The repair process is quite simple, but the art lies in the colour matching of the existing mortar. If this is done poorly it will devalue your residence rather than increase its value. Do not trust this to just anyone to carry out the repairs to your property.

Next time you’re outside have a look at your external brickwork and check for signs of fretting mortar. A simple once-over now could save you some money in the long run.
