S Fallon Roofing are experts in repointing from brick repointing, stone repointing and lime repointing. If you need your house repointed to improve its overall look to add character and value to maximise your return in investment then look no further.
Pointing is the term given to the ‘finish’ that is between the bricks or stone used to build your house. Depending on the age of the building, the mortar which was used to lay the stone or brick will either be made from lime, or more recently, cement. The issue of pointing is one which causes irreparable damage to older buildings if done wrongly, and it is important to understand what the mortar joints actually do for the fabric of the house.
The correct repointing can assist in waterproofing and stabilizing the walls of the structure, extend the life of the wall and individual stones and enhance the visual qualities of natural stone walls.
