If you’ve been a resident of Bergen County or the areas surrounding for some time, then you know our temperature ranges don’t always stay consistent. Therefore, maintaining strong and durable masonry structures can be a challenge! When brick absorbs water, the freeze/thaw process occurs. This means that when the water inside of your brickwork and mortar freezes and expands, your structure expands right along with it!The Process of Repointing - Bergen County NJ - Oosting Construction

What Is Repointing?

When your mortar is cracked and crumbling, there’s one service we offer that helps resolve things in no time – repointing. Repointing is the process of removing the old damage mortar and replacing it with new materials that can stand the test of time. Seems simple enough, right? Not exactly. It’s important to precisely match the old mortar to the new, and neglecting to do so can lead to some poor results. Some houses are decades old, so finding out what was used back in that time can be tricky!

Why Trust Our Team?

Repointing work takes time and patience, and the new mortar needs to match perfectly to the old mortar to ensure seamless results. Unfortunately, not all companies take the necessary steps to check whether their materials match up just right. In these cases, the masonry ends up looking just as bad as before (or sometimes worse)!

Along with this, a subpar job won’t make your masonry any more structurally sound, and it could leave you vulnerable to water damage and decay.
