Re-pointing specalists

Chapelgate construction offer a value for money brickwork and stonework restoration service across the Wirral, Merseyside and Cheshire areas. we can replace perished bricks and old mortar cements or loose pointing using materials that blend in with the project, it is common for buildings that were built around 100 years ago to need the mortar or cement replacing between the bricks because with time the cement or lime mortar will start falling out with continuing weather erosion leading to penetrating damp which will freeze in the winter months causing the faces of the bricks to sheer off.Chaplegate construction re-points brick and stone properties across Wirral using traditional lime mortar that matches the original mortar and styles of pointing as this is what returns buildings back to their original state as the designer intended them to look. The other main benefit of lime mortar repointing is that it works with the building allowing it to breath and expel the moisture that older buildings naturally absorb and release in a constant cycle, When this cycle is blocked by hard cement re-pointing it has the effect of locking in moisture leading to the moisture being expelled via the face of the brick causing the bricks to turn brittle.
