Repointing in Plymouth
MPC Plastering provide repointing in Plymouth, Devon and the south West of old and deteriorating external mortar joints. With exposure to the element, such as wind, rain, and frost, the mortar holding the bricks or stonework of a building together, will often start to crumble away and fall out. Water entering through these voids can cause significant damage.
Our Plymouth repointing will involve seeking to remove all old mortar between joints carefully, avoiding damage to surrounding brick or stone work. Using specialist machinery and tools we will rake out the area to be repointed, clean down and replace any missing or loose brickwork. Then, using a 4-1 sand cement mix we will fill and dry in the new mortar, then strike in using a pointing iron tool. Finally the surface will be brushed down to finish.
