Brick Replacement Services London

As sturdy as exterior bricks are, they may need replacement or repair for a number of reasons. After years of withstanding weather and wind, the exposed face of the brick may lose its weatherproofing allowing water to penetrate, leading to damp and further cracking. With successive rapid freeze and thaw cycles, frost can also cause damage to the brickwork face.

Here at Bison Brickwork, our London brickwork team are experts at replacing damaged or spalled bricks. We will precisely match the existing colour and finish of the brickwork as well as the mortar repair. We understand property owners concerns and have vast experience in replacing and repairing not only standard bricks but also decorative bricks, which can be sourced to match the originals. If sourcing bricks is not possible, we can make the required bricks.

Brick Pointing London

Bison Brickwork are specialists in pointing and repointing brickwork in London and the surrounding areas. Every client and their property, regardless of size, modern, listed or commercial, can rest assured with our outstanding levels of technical skill and service.

Repointing

It is crucial that the mortar used for repointing has similar characteristics to the original mortar. For example, if a hard mortar repair is used on soft bricks, the bricks will degrade faster – leading to more extensive and expensive repairs. Repointing not only restores the integrity of the brickwork, but significantly improves the appearance of the building.

Penny Roll Pointing

Penny Rolling uses lined indentation made with an old penny to regularise the look of the pointing and give an illusion of bricks with sharp edges. The mortar is repointed flush with the brickwork, and using a rule and an old penny, the penny is rolled in the middle of the brick joints, leaving a straight, indented line in the mortar.

Weather Struck Pointing

Weather Struck pointing requires a great deal of skill to get the necessary results. Mortar is pressed into raked joints and is then smoothed to achieve an even surface. The bottom edge is neatly trimmed with a straight edged knife. The joint is finished sloping from the top of the joint to the bottom. This type of pointing gives excellent resistance to adverse weather.

Tuck Pointing

Tuck Pointing is normally used in the conservation and restoration of existing brickwork. It is a Victorian style of pointing that hides large and uneven brick edges. Using traditional methods with a tuck iron, the process is slow but produces excellent results to complement and enhance buildings of a bygone era.
