Brick Cleaning Restoration

As the job required brick repointing as well, we had raked out old brick pointing. Next, we cleaned a brickwork using soda cleaning technology.

Lime Mortar

After brickwork was clean and ready for repointing. For brick pointing restoration we use a lime mortar. Accordingly, to brick restoration principles, lime mortar should be used in the repair and restoration of softer building materials such as soft red bricks.

Flush Finish Pointing

From many available types of brick pointing, the client has chosen a flush pointing. What distinguishes this type of pointing is that it gives a rough “old look” appearance.
