Pointing Works

What is pointing and how does it work?

Pointing is the term given to the ‘finish’ that is between the bricks or stone used to build your house. Depending on the age of the building, the mortar used to lay the stone or brick will either be made from lime, or more recently, cement. Incorrect pointing causes irreparable damage to older buildings. It is essential to understand what the mortar joints actually do for the fabric of the house.

The function of the mortar in the wall is to act as a bedding between stones and varies from fine joints in ashlar stonework to larger joints in rubble masonry walls. Joints are effectively reduced in size by inserting small stones and ‘snecked’ pieces of stone. Whilst acting as a bedding the mortar must also perform other functions:

It must prevent water penetration through the joints by its physical presence almost like a masonry‘ sponge’, yet it must allow the wall to breathe and drain, porosity being a key factor in the choice of a repointing mortar.

It must be flexible to allow movement/settlement of the structure due to thermal responses and settlement within the structure. Many earlier large buildings are not designed with the modern expansion/contraction joints of today.

The strength of the mortar should always be less than the surrounding stones and should be considered as a sacrificial element of the wall, and viewed as a maintenance item in need of replacement possibly every century.

The condition of stone walls cannot be viewed in isolation and repointing of any walls will not cure water ingress problems caused by other building failures, such as gutters, roofs, and leadwork. These must be in good condition to maintain the life of the walling elements.

Walls need to breathe – and if the pointing doesn’t allow this, the wall will rapidly deteriorate. Mortar joints are the lungs of a wall – they allow water within the structure to enter and leave freely. If water tries to leave through stone or brick, it will slowly disintegrate. Block the mortar joints, and the wall will destroy itself.

Mortar should be softer than the material the wall is built with. Pointing should be subservient to the material the wall is built with and assume a secondary role, visually.
