after Before conversion

 

Lincolnshire barn conversion, a typical project carried out by by Hardy Bros. (Tealby) Limited:

with help from the PNU-POINT pointing tool


after After conversion: repointed with hydraulic lime - grit mortar.


 

 

 


 

“As Builders and Contractors, we have been using the Pnu-Point Pointing Gun for several years now with great success. Although we have used it for pointing paving and brickwork with sand and cement; Pnu-Point has been most useful when used to re-point stonework and brickwork with hydraulic-grit-lime mortar. The system is practical, simple and after a few hours of practice, Pnu-Point makes re-pointing really easy and really quick – we highly recommend it.”

Tool Pointing Lime

1840 Listed North Yorkshire Farmhouse

Print Email

Listed Building Restoration Project

 

A typical project for Re-Point, a Co Durham building maintenance business, was the repointing of a 1840 listed farmhouse in a North Yorkshire village. The contract specified that the raking out be done by hand because of the fragile state of the brickwork and that the pointing was to be a 2 1/2 to 1 moderate hydraulic lime mortar. The joionts were fettled to achieve a weathered, "not just repointed" finish. The Pnu-Point pointing tool forced the mortar into the irregular joints without any bleed on the work face. On a typical day the two man team achieved 25 to 30 square metres, much of their time being spent in fettling to achieve the required finish. This was a time consuming and care requiring job but financially well worthwhile because of the Pnu-Point tool's ease of use, cleanliness and speed.

Re-Point work mainly in the North East of England and Yorkshire but distance is no object!
