Alpha Pointing

Domestic & Commercial Pointing Contractors

Alpha Pointing is a family run business established in 2008.  We have built up a good reputation with a lot of our work coming from recommendations.

Repointing is one of the most effective ways to restore the condition and physical appearance of your home.  Not only does a repointed wall look neat, smart and increases your homes kerb appeal but it also protects your home or garden wall from damage such as frost or water.

Overtime the mortar between the brickwork can crumble and evode and therefore replacing this mortar (repointing) is a highly important job that can prolong the protectiveness of your walls.

Unlike may companies we carry out traditional brick pointing using trowels rather than pointing guns.  All joints are ground out using an angle grinder to the required depth then washed down before new pointing is applied.

The deterioration in the pointing element of the construction will eventually lead to the poor performance of the building.  Generally, the failure of the mortar will result in

1. Ingress of water into the external fabric of the building and subsequently internally for pre-cavity constructed buildings.

2. Frost or water damage indicated by the ‘spalling’ of the face of the brick.

Your brickwork experts

In all masonry walls (brick, stone or block), the exposed face of the mortar joint is subject to gradual erosion due to rain, wind and wind-driven dust and grit. Frost attack also contributes to the breakdown of materials. Once the exposed face of the mortar has receded behind the outer wall face, the arises of the masonry become more vulnerable to erosion. At some point the joints become so worn that water can penetrate and saturate the wall. The decision to repoint is most often related to some obvious sign of deterioration, such as disintegrating mortar, cracks in mortar joints, loose bricks or stones, damp walls, or damaged plasterwork. Holes can sometimes develop in the joints due to improper bedding of the masonry or other, specialized, localized influences, and the general look of the house exterior is reduced.
