Here at Sandstone Restoration and Repairs Glasgow, our experts usually use lime mortars for our lime pointing services. A lime mortar is more porous than cement ones, which enables the evaporation of moisture from joints to be freer. Keep in mind that lime-based mortar is always great for the restoration of worn-out buildings, and this is especially true for those whose bricks or stones have cracks and splits.
Our company uses lime putty or natural hydraulic lime for the re-pointing. With a lime mortar, it can remove the moisture accumulating in the wall and eliminate the build-up of soluble salts in the stone, thus lessening the potential damage to the building.
While lime pointing is a messy work, our experts know the job well. They would usually begin by sectioning off the area with plastic to prevent the other places from becoming dirty. In addition to that, they can also point the mortar into the joints.
The following are reasons why repointing the wall surface is essential:
- When there is a need for a replacement of an existing mortar
- When the current mortar joints have become worn out and the mortar needs to be replaced.
Quality Lime Pointing Services
There are people who are not aware when a mortar is damaged, and they might not realise that the mortar has reached a point where it needs to be replaced. A lot of old lime mortars in historic establishments will break or crumble much more easily than cement. Such a condition creates the thought that it needs replacing. This is true for softer mortars for they are more likely to absorb more moisture vapour. Thus, it is always important to protect your historic stone or brick work.
