Pointing is the visible edge of the mortar between your bricks. As brickwork mortar grows older it may break away and become uneven. This allows water to get in to the mortar, collecting in the damaged joints, causing damage to bricks and making your brickwork more porous.
It can become serious, causing frost damage to bricks, so is best fixed. It is though a long, tedious job, often at height, so its another job where you need to be confident working from a ladder or tower.
When replacing mortar and renovating pointing, it is important to be sympathetic to the brickwork and style of house.
Pointing is a time consuming job, but when complete it can transform the look of a house, as well as making the brickwork weatherproof.
