Our Chimney Repointing Process
Chimney repointing takes specific skills. It is the process of fixing mortar that has cracked or is missing and if it is not completed properly, it can cause more damage to your chimney than the cracked or missing mortar. The process of chimney repointing includes many steps and should always be completed by a professional. Here are the steps that should be taken when it comes to chimney repointing in Bristol.
- Assessing Your Chimney – The first step in repointing is to assess your chimney to determine how much damage has been done to your mortar. This includes using special tools to assess the extent of damage.
- Removing Old Mortar Joints – It is important when old mortar joints are removed that this is done correctly. If it is not done correctly, it can cause damage to the surrounding mortar and brick.
- Mortar Application – Once the damage has been assessed and old mortar removed a specialized mortar mix that closely matches existing mortar should be applied.
- Seal The Mortar – To finish the chimney repointing sealant should be added to help prevent moisture getting into the chimney.
