Sunday May 24th, 2020 One Day Intensive Workshop

10:30 am – 4:00 pm

Without a doubt our most popular workshop ever! – This workshop covers all aspects of repointing a traditional home.

Repointing is the process of removing deteriorating mortar from the joints of a masonry wall (brick or stone) and replacing it with new mortar.

The decision to repoint is usually made to arrest some obvious signs of deterioration such as disintegrating mortar, loose bricks, cracks in mortar joints themselves, damp walls, or damaged interior plaster.


Properly executed, repointing restores the visual and physical integrity of the masonry.

Improperly executed repointing not only detracts from the appearance of your home, but may, in fact, cause physical damage to the masonry units themselves if the appropriate mortar is not used.

Curriculum:

  • This one day intensive covers all aspects of repointing brick and stone on an older home or commercial building, including how to inspect for possible damage.
  • The student will learn how to remove mortar, replace spalled or broken bricks, repoint stonework, remove unsympathetic Portland cement and mix correct mortar mixes.
  • Finishing and tooling techniques will also be examined.
  • The workshop is very hands-on, and the student will get the chance to try many of the topics covered.
  • You will complete this professional intensive with the tools and knowledge to tackle a small or even large repointing project.

There is very limited space, and the workshop fills-up fast… claim your spot in this very interactive professional intensive today.
