Repointing Services for Commercial Buildings

The mortar used for repointing is not a one-size-fits-all solution; it must be carefully selected based on various factors such as climate and environmental conditions. Different regions experience varying weather patterns, temperature fluctuations and levels of moisture. It’s important to hire an experienced commercial repointing company for this reason, as most clients want the results to be long-lasting.

Bond Façade Commercial Mortar

  • Lime Mortar
    • Lime mortar is often preferred for repointing historic or older buildings. It is more flexible and breathable than modern cement-based mortars, making it suitable for structures that need to accommodate slight movements and moisture fluctuations.
  • Hydraulic Lime Mortar
    • In areas with higher exposure to moisture or harsher climates, hydraulic lime mortars are used. They have properties that enable them to set and harden even in damp conditions, providing improved water resistance.
  • Mortars with Additives
    • Some commercial repointing projects require the use of special additives in the mortar mix to enhance specific characteristics, such as water repellency or improved workability.
  • Matching Mortar Color
    • Achieving an exact match of the mortar color is vital for preserving the visual appearance of the building during repointing. Our skilled artisans blend pigments and use color-matching technology to achieve a seamless blend with the original mortar.
