Feasterville-Trevose, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/15/2019 -- Whether finished with brick, stone, or stucco, a good-looking chimney can be a highlight of any home's exterior. But like all masonry, chimneys don't last forever, and as the visible signs of a chimney's deterioration start to appear, they serve as a warning that repointing is needed. The "joints" in masonry, the mortar that holds the structure together, are known as pointing. Repointing strengthens the structure by repairing or replacing these joints.

Homes in Langhorne, PA need brick pointing if homeowners notice any of the telltale signs of disrepair.

When mortar begins to weaken, one of the first signs is flaking. Detached pieces of mortar suggest that the mortar is struggling to hold itself, and the structure, together.

Discoloration or mismatched color may be a sign of weathering and deterioration. Or, it could be a result of an earlier, inferior repointing job.

Another sign of weakening mortar is the appearance of cracks. Even small cracks can cause big problems for chimneys and other masonry work.

Fortunately, these problems can be solved by repointing. Above All Chimney & Masonry has more than 30 years of experience in restoring the structural integrity of chimneys and other masonry in the Langhorne, PA area with stone pointing.
