No matter how diligent you are as a homeowner, if you own a stone home or have stone features on your home, you’ll have to deal with stone pointing and repointing at some point. Stone itself is extremely resistant to water, however the mortar that pieces your stones together is not. Over years of rainfall and changing weather conditions, the mortar between your stonework deteriorates and weakens. When this happens, not only does your wall or home become gapped and weakened, water intrusion begins.
If your home’s stonework has begun to deteriorate, shift, or just doesn’t look so good, then you may be in need of stone pointing or stone repointing services. When it comes to repointing stone, quality workmanship and well-trained masons are key. Properly pointed stone will stay looking excellent for years, while the more haphazard jobs may look nice at first but will start showing signs of wear and tear in just a couple weeks.
When choosing a mason to conduct your upcoming stone pointing or repointing project, it’s important you choose one that understands the importance of both the aesthetic and function of your stonework.
