Chimney Repointing Wokingham
Over time, weathering and decay causes deterioration in the joints between masonry. This allows water penetration which can cause significant damage.
Repointing is the process of renewing the mortar joints between bricks or masonry.
Having damaged joints between your bricks or masonry repointed prevents water penetration and the consequential damage.
Repointing will also enhance the external appearance of the building.
Most chimney damage or decay starts from the top down. The top cement flaunching between you and your neighbour’s chimney pots should be laid in one continuous section without cracks/split. The cement flaunching should be cambered so rainwaters runs off the chimney to the outer edge.
The chimney stack is exposed to the full force of our weather. To withstand such conditions, chimney stacks must be maintained to the highest standard.
When repairs are required they should be made with the correct materials by an experienced contractor using appropriate tools and safety systems.
