Over time the natural weathering of your building can significantly affect the mortar of brick joints, leaving your brickwork and stone in disrepair. Ultimately, this can cause rising damp, crumbling of bricks and possibly threaten the entire structural stability of your home or building. Brick repointing can restore the joints between your brick and stone, maintaining the strength and integrity of the walls that protect and surround you.
The age-old problem faced by you, the building owner, is finding a highly skilled brick repointing craftsman – not just any bricklayer – so as to not ruin your brickwork with inferior brick repointing. Choosing the right craftsmen for your project requires someone who understands masonry and possess the necessary skills fit for the job.
Whether your building is domestic, commercial, strata complex or a heritage building – choosing trained craftsmen the first time round will save you from additional costs and stress in the future.
What is repointing? Repointing is an intricate process requiring a high level of proficiency and experience to ensure the integrity of your building is upheld.
The repointing process:
- Decayed mortar is carefully raked out of the brick or stone joints and the joints are then washed to remove any dust and debris
- Depending on your building, Premier Pointing will inspect the original joint and mortar type – creating a new mortar closely matching the original colour and texture
- Mortar is injected into the joint, with careful consideration taken to ensure the original joint profile is correct
- Once the mortar is dry, your brickwork is thoroughly cleaned with a high-pressure water brick cleaning system
Effective repointing greatly improves the appearance and resilience of your building’s masonry.

Premier Pointing - my experience was great. Communication was excellent – appointments were made and kept, they gave me a honest timeframe to start the job, kept their promised start date and all the tradesmen were totally professional. They obviously took pride in their work, and cleaned up well after themselves. The job looks fantastic.Sue

Dear Premier Pointing,
This is a sincere thank you for the work completed recently on our house in Greenwich. The boys on site were always courteous, incredibly hard-working, very skilled and professional. The quote was very reasonable and all work was commenced and completed on times scheduled. The site was left clean and the finished job perfect.
