A.Armstrong Roofing Est.1976 offers comprehensive brickwork repointing service, covering all types of brickwork from ground level to top of chimney stacks.
We only re-point brickwork that has less than 5% rotting bricks. If the structure is unstable, it may need re-building. All re-pointing work is guaranteed for 10 years.
Our client asked us to check a flat roof leak out. The flat roof was newish, in very good condition and well flashed into brickwork providing a watertight bond. After close inspection however, we found the mortar between the bricks very weathered, causing water ingress behind flashing. We grinded back brickwork, washed off and repionted, then sprayed with silicone based sealer. No more leaks and the brickwork is restored as if new.
"These guys really know what there doing. We've had a number of roofing contractors searching for this leak. A.Armstrong Roofing Est.1976 found the problem first time. We regularly use these guys for any roofing problems. Very profesional service!" Patrick - Sacred Heart High School, Fenham.
Gone are the days of raking out joints with screwdriver and re-pointing brickwork with hand-board and trowel. New technologies have made it a lot easier, cleaner, cheaper and to a higher standard. A.Armstrong Roofing now use electric mortar rakes with a shroud to collect harmfull messy dust, allowing us to get more mortar in joints. We hose down brickwork removing all dust then wet up before pointing for maximum key between mortar and brickwork. The new mortar gun allows precison joint filling at a quicker rate, reducing labour costs. Finally, we use a pointing tool to make the brickwork look as good as new!
