This job required the joints to be fully raked out utilising a diamond tipped mortar raking blade, then repointed using the weather pointing or struck pointing method, leaving a neat finish, as seen.
You will also note some of the bricks had to be replaced due to frost damage over the years; the old ones are removed and replaced with new which dosent affect the structure of the building and giving the building a much nicer look.
A great deal of the older houses would benefit from this due to the fact the mortar between the bricks has been weathering away and dropping out over the years, thus leaving it susceptable to the elements causing possible damp and cold spots in the house.
Once pointed this should remedy these problems.
