Semi detached bungalow, chimney rake out and repoint
Semi detached bungalow
After years of weathering, the existing mortar began to break down. Although the surface was quite solid, water had seeped in and soaked the mortar. Behind the surface, the cement had become powdery and porous. By raking out the cement, all of the sand and dust can be removed, to ensure a good amount of new mortar can be pumped in between the joints of the bricks to ensure it stays sound for many years to come.
