What is Re-pointing?
Re-pointing is a process whereby old deteriorated mortar (in between bricks) is removed to a depth of 15-20 mm using specialist machinery and new mortar injected. It is then tooled off and once dry, lightly acid washed and cleaned.
Performed correctly, it will add structural integrity to your brickwork and as shown below, can add dramatic visual appeal to your heritage brick home.

Over 8 months in the making, the wraps have just come off this gorgeous circa 1920’s Dumaresq St Hamilton semi.
The team from Goodwood Building worked tirelessly to restore the old girl back to it’s former glory. As part of the overall facelift, we restored and Tuckpointed the brickwork to the front of the property.
How good does the finished renovation look! 😍😍😍
Last week we completed Tuckpointing the front of this small but charming 1920’s cottage in Denison St Hamilton.
A long-term leaking awning from above, combined with rising damp on both verandah outer walls, created what was possibly the worst brick mould and decay we’d ever encountered. To say restoring the brickwork to its former glory was challenging - is an understatement! We even managed to freshen-up the verandah tessellated tiles whilst we were there. 😍
A great outcome and a client ecstatic with the transformation.
