    cost of repointing a 5-6 square metres area of wall


    How much does it cost to hire a specialist to repoint a 5-6 square metres area of a wall? What about the labour and supply costs individually? Alternatively, is this something that I can do myself? If so, what should I know and roughly, what are the steps involved?

    "Approximately 150 to 180 pounds varies according to type of pointing required, this is something you could do yourself but can be very dusty if a grinder is required. It needs raking out to a depth of 15 to 20mm before wetting(to remove dust and aid adhesion) before repointing."

    "If the walls need to break out the old pointing and cleaning then the cost will be £450 -£500
    Or just pointing straight away will be
    £350 - £400"

    5 aspect pointing

    "to answer your question 1 would need to see the area in question , pointing is a specialist job a photograph would suffice, if it is face brickwork to your home! patch pointing will be no good whatsoever, remember a car is no good without an engine, the brickwork of your home is its engine, the materials to such meterage is insignificant it is the time and labour the main cost and how long it is going to take good preperation is absolutly crucial or the repointing will fail miserably,try it yourself by all means but when you make a mess it will cost you alot more to put right GOOD LUCK HOPE THIS HELPS"

    "If it’s just a section on one elevation I would have the full elevation pointed it would look better.

    If it’s just an area on a wall then around £500"
