Repointing is the process of renewing the pointing (the external part of mortar joints) in masonry construction. Over time, weathering and decay cause voids in the joints between masonry units (usually bricks), allowing the undesirable entrance of water. Water entering through these voids can cause significant damage through frost weathering and from salt dissolution and deposition. Repointing is also called pointing, or pointing up, although these terms more properly refer to the finishing step in new construction.
Removal of old mortar between joints is done carefully to avoid damage to masonry units. On very old buildings with soft materials, such as under-fired brick, removal by hand is often the most effective to avoid damage. Hard Portland cement mortar is usually removed with a grinder or power circular masonry blade, taking care not to damage the masonry units. Vertical joints are done by hand or with small power chisels

From the outset Lee was enthusiastic, polite and knowledgeable. He contacted me when he said he would, visited me when he said he would and oversaw the actual work ensuring everything was to our satisfaction.
The standard of the repair to the spalled bricks is excellent, he even went as far as adding some weathering to the mix so that the repaired bricks would blend in, now I can’t tell a repaired brick from and untouched one.
We are delighted with the finished results and I have no hesitation in recommending Elesel and Lee to anyone.
