Repointing is the process of renewing the pointing, which is the external part of mortar joints, in masonry construction. Over time, weathering and decay cause voids in the joints between masonry units, usually in bricks, allowing the undesirable entrance of water. Water entering through these voids can cause significant damage through frost weathering 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.
Dry Roof Cleaning
Is it bad to have moss growing on my roof?
As the moss thickens and grows on an asphalt shingle roof it can raise the shingles up (much like a jack under a car). … This debris promotes water build-up which makes the roof at risk of much more rotting and leaking. Moss can actually damage the asphalt shingle components leaving it to break down faster.
There are many ways to remove moss from your roof but we do not recommend jet washing as it can damage your tiles. We recommend a dry clean using professional tools.
Many experts recommend cleaning your gutters at least twice a year– once in the late spring and once in the late summer/early Autumn. But there are a few factors that might make you reconsider. If you have pine trees growing above your house, consider inspecting your gutters every 3 months.
Why would I need to keep my gutters/eavestrough clear of debris?
