Repointing work

One of the main causes of damp in traditionally built properties is failed pointing, where pointing has reached the end of its natural life. This causes it to be powdery or to just fall out of the joints. It could also be due to the property being previously repointed or rendered with an inappropriate cement mortar, which will retain moisture and stop any water evaporating back out. Older properties also have timbers embedded into the stonework that can rot as a result of water penetration so using the correct mortar is vitally important.

Repointing with traditional lime mortars helps the moisture to escape, allowing your property to breathe. Lime mortars are durable and will keep your property weatherproof and looking its best.

Renovation project in Bideford, Devon

This project involved the complete re-facing of the front of the property. The stone wall of the property was so severely damaged due to an inappropriate cement render, water had penetrated the render and caused the stone to split and shatter.

It was rebuilt with a traditional, environmentally friendly mortar and local Devon stone. This has stopped damp from reoccurring.
