One of the most common problems facing many domestics and buildings are decaying mortar joints exposed between bricks. Fretting, bowed, and loose brickwork can occur in many structure and eventually cause visible cracks in the joints. Different structures are affected for a variety of reasons; however, the general root of most decay problems is natural weather and poor quality cement in the mortar mix.
At the first signs of cracks appearing in joints, water can also start to make its way into the joints cause erosion, crumbling, and sometimes a collapsing structure.
Brick pointing is the skilled craft that replaces these joins whilst matching each brick’s colour and textures, using Point Brik’s specially formulated mortar. This process not only enhances each foundation’s structural integrity, bust also creates a fresh and elegant finish as if the bricks were recently laid. Point Brik will also source and replace any damaged bricks and brick vents in necessary circumstances, making sure the look is tailored to your abode.
A very common issue Point Brik sees in Sydney is salt erosion. Salt from the air will stick to the brick’s surface and mortar and slowly erode them away over time, particularly an issue for any seaside suburbs. Point Brik will also add a water protectant to its brickwork to slow the damage and deterioration of salt keeping your structure intact for as long as possible.
