Dwyer Heritage Restorations specialise in repointing of brickwork, granite and all types of stone. The system is unique and approved by the PWD, CSIRO Materials Science & Engineering and Heritage Architects. We developed the system over 30 years ago and were the first in the world to be able to pump replacement mortar. It is an inherently clean system with no requirement to acid wash repointed areas after repointing.
Repointing is the process of renewing mortar joints in masonry construction. Over time, weathering and decay causes voids in the joints between masonry units (usually bricks) allowing the undesirable ingress of water. Water entering through these voids can cause significant damage through freeze/thaw cycles and from salt dissolution and deposition. Repointing is also called pointing, or pointing up, although these terms more properly refer to the finishing step in new construction.
