What Is Basement Repointing?

Basement repointing is a process for repairing and restoring mortar. Mortar is essential because it solidifies and holds bricks and other construction materials in place. Quality mortar can last a century or longer, but we recommend having it inspected before the end of its life. As mortar ages, it can begin dissolving and cause structural and aesthetic damage to your property. Basement mortar deterioration can pose a safety threat to your home and incur thousands in repairs. During repointing, our team repairs or replaces mortar to revitalize the bond between your bricks and ensures your basement supports you for years to come.

What Happens if My Basement Mortar Fails?

Since many basements are unfinished and raw looking, it can be easy for property owners to ignore small cracks and imperfections. But basements require as much care and attention as any floor in a home or building. Mortar that is breaking down or falling apart can pose many threats to your comfort and safety, including:

Leaks, Flooding, and Moisture

Broken mortar provides an entry for water. Minor breaks can cause leaking and moisture accumulation, while severe leaks may result in flooding.

Structural Insecurity

As mortar deteriorates, your basement walls will become unstable. If left unrepaired, your basement could start to crumble and eventually collapse.

Unpleasant Appearance

If your basement mortar's color is mismatched or different in certain areas, we recommend having it repointed. Unpleasant discoloration may indicate a more significant underlying issue.
