Has Re-pointing been Done to the Walls of my Ground Floor Victorian Flat?


Postby Sandy1 » Mon May 04, 2015 11:07 pm

Hi, I have got a ground floor terraced Victorian type flat (kitchen leading onto bathroom etc) and have recently had the kitchen and bathroom stripped back to the walls, the thing is I have been charged for repointing/pointing but I can't tell by the pictures if it has been done plus the builder was that quick I don't see when he would of been able to do it. Any opinions and I would be very grateful for ur input :)

Hi Sandy1
I think you should ask the builder exactly what he means by pointing, and what he's actually done.
Re-pointing would normally involve exterior work, and is indeed time consuming. There's certainly no sign of much work being done to the walls in your photos.

Thank you for your response :) I checked his first quote and it said internal and external pointing, just out of curiosity and interest i googled it as I wanted to know what it was and I'm pretty sure now that it hasn't been done...but I'm not a expert haha
