Lime Pointing In Oldham

Pointing is an important technique used to fill in the gaps between bricks and stones. 

Incorrect pointing will cause a lot of damage to older buildings and new buildings alike, so it's very important to have your pointing completed by trained and experienced professionals.

We specialise in lime pointing contact us and check out our gallery to see some of our previous pointing work.

Why Pointing Is Important

  • Waterproofing - Pointing helps seals gaps and cracks which would allow water to penetrate and cause more serious damage

  • Structural integrity - Allows the walls to flex in different temperatures preventing further structural damage

  • Decorative - Pointing applied correctly will leave a smooth and presentable finish, clearing and increasing the aesthetics of the building

When Should Pointing Be Carried Out

No mortar will last forever and over time and movement, it will begin to deteriorate. Generally, it is a good idea to replace the painting every century if not needed beforehand due to damage. If pointing has failed and not been repaired, it can allow water to enter the building, which when cold will freeze expand and cause further damage.
