Rope access pointing |abseiling
Rope access / abseiling / pointing and pointing repair is a basic part of Repair Abseiling Limited brickwork and stonework services. Pointing and pointing repair is coming up when the pointing getting loose, falling out from the gaps and let the rainwater inside the building and brick structures. The external building surfaces /walls, chimneys, brickwork, …etc./ highly exposed to the weather conditions. These surfaces must resist all, harsh weather conditions, high UV violation, heavy rain and strong wind constantly. These external structures /the walls generally/ dedicated to save us, people, inside the building in any circumstances. These impacts and harsh conditions can destroy the components of the best quality brickwork and pointing too. When these basic and important components are going away by the natural erosion and the evaporating internal moisture, then the pointing is starting to be cracked and lose. When the rain and wind find the smallest “crack on the shield”, and these small gaps are starting to let the rainwater inside the structure, then this issue requires attention and professional assistance. These small imperfections can accelerate the deterioration of the brickwork and its pointing. In these cases the pointing lets in the water into the structure of the brickwork, which can suck up and hold a lot of water on this way directly. This accumulated rainwater can cause a serious damp issue inside (in the structure and the flats) and outside, experienced on the external surfaces, when the accumulated water /moisture/ starts to evaporate outwards, leaving white stains on the brickwork. This chemical process generates these white “salt efflorescence” stains on the brickwork. When these important components and mineral salts of the mortar are starting to move away with the evaporating moisture, until the water can evaporate from the structure but these components trapped on the surface leaving a deposit stain on the outside of the brickwork, then this colorization shows the issue clearly. These “salts” are important components of the structure and the mortar of the pointing. When these components are missing or going away, the strength of the pointing decreases radically. …and this issue leads back to the beginning … Repair Abseiling professionals have decades of experience in any rope access brickwork repair , rendering and pointing works.
