Brickwork Raking Manchester

Brick Cleaning & Raking

Chesterfield: A typical late 18th / early 19th century summerhouse. We began by raking the joints in preparation for the replacement mortar. The joint widths determined a rake out to 12mm+. We then then cleaned the brick facade with a special brick acid calibrated for use on softer, period property masonry.

 

 

 

During the preparation phase, we check for any signs of brick slippage or movement in the buildings brickwork skins. The use of wall ties and helical bars are sometimes required in order to ensure lateral strength in the exterior skin and to tie the internal and external skins together to prevent any movement between the two.

Making a Start on the Pointing

Using color co-ordinated pitsand, carefully chosen lime types and in some cases cement additives to correlate PH to coincide with local Northern fly-ash mortar mixtures, we're able to produce bespoke mortars designed specifically for their given application/environment.

    Choose Experienced Professionals For Your Pointing

    When they decide to hire experts in pointing, Manchester residents use us because they know we have the skills and experience they need.

    Choosing an inexperienced pointing service could lead to serious problems including damaged brickwork. This can happen when the bond in the joint is stronger than the brick, for example; wrong type of mix, inhibiting the breathabillity of the mortar, which is a serious problem in older houses with solid wall type construction walls that need to 'sweat' the moisture taken onboard through usual weathering and internal condensation from cooking etc. Another aspect to consider is the of the mortar. PH mismatches that can lead to reactions between the original mortar the bricks are bedded on and the new repointing mortar. We can adjust the mix constituents to match the original mortar beds ensuring a chemically calibrated (acidic / alkaline) mortar . Also, in some cases where the mixture has particularly high cement content, the strength of the mortar can prevent the masonry units from effectivly expanding and contracting which causes the brick or stone to flake / crumble.

    Pointing is essential for keeping the damp out, which can also help to keep your home warmer and more comfortable – and this can help you to cut your heating bills. However, always make sure you choose a professional with experience to avoid potential problems.
