Brick Repointing: What you need to know
If you’re thinking about having your brickwork repointed, you’ll want to read this first. In this blog post, we’ll discuss everything you need to know about the process, including how long it takes, how much it costs and what benefits it can bring. We’ll also dispel some of the myths that often surround repointing, so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not it’s the right option for your property.
What exactly is brick repointing?
Repointing is the process of repairing and replenishing the mortar between bricks. Over time, mortar can deteriorate due to weathering, water damage or simply age, and when this happens it can lead to structural problems such as cracks or instability. By having your brickwork repointed, you can prevent these problems from occurring, and ensure that your brickwork lasts for many years to come.
How long does repointing take?
The answer to this question depends on the size and scale of the job. For a small repair job, it could take as little as a few hours. However, for a larger project, it could take several days or even weeks to complete. The important thing to remember is that repointing is a very labor-intensive process, so it is important to factor in this when you are planning your project.
What about cost?
Again, the cost of repointing will depend on the size and scale of the job. However, as a general guide, you can expect to pay anywhere from £700 to £5000 for a typical repointing job.
As with any building work, it is always best to get a few quotes before making a decision. This will give you a good idea of the market rate and help you to find the best deal.

What are the benefits of repointing?
In addition to preventing structural problems, repointing can also improve the appearance of your brickwork. If your mortar is old and stained, repointing can give it a fresh, new look. Repointing can also be used to change the colour of your mortar, so if you’re looking for a way to refresh your brickwork without having to replace it entirely, repointing could be the perfect solution.
