Brick Wall Repointing Cost

How much does it cost to repoint a brick wall?

Pointing is the outer layer of mortar that is used when laying a brick wall. To repoint a wall means to remove the old existing mortar to a certain depth and then replace it with new mortar. The old mortar is raked out using a trowel or similar device and then replaced with new mortar.

In older properties it’s generally best practice to use the same mortar as originally specified, this may be lime mortar as opposed to modern portland cement mortar. Lime mortar is softer once set which is kinder to older bricks and breathable, which can help alleviate damp problems in period properties.
