Jointing & Pointing Introduction

When bricks have been laid to form a wall, the surplus mortar is scraped flush with surface of the brick face. This type of surface finish is called a flush finish. Today, most brickwork is ‘jointed’ which means that the joints are finished as the work proceeds and therefore require no further attention. ‘Pointing’ is a term used to describe the process of finishing off joints that were raked out on the day the brickwork was built. Pointing is carried out after the brickwork is complete.

Shaping of the mortar joints

The shape of brickwork joint is often done to match previous and existing brickwork . There are a number of jointing effects that can be used. See image for examples.

Bucket Handle Keyed

This type of finish is achieved by scraping or ‘ironing in’ the joint to the shape required by using a tool known as a jointer. The jointer is rubbed along the joints to form a concave or half-round joint. The jointing tool must remain in contact with the brick arises above and below the bed joints to avoid a tramline effect on the surface of the joint. The cross joints should always be done first and care is needed when finishing joints at external angles.

Flush Joints

Experience, care and attention are required if the joints are to be left looking truly flush. Flush joints are achieved by cleaning off any excess surface mortar and, brushing the surface with a bristle brush to remove any  unwanted crumbs. Take a lot of care when using a bristle brush to avoid making brush marks in the soft stone mortar joint filler.

Recessed

Recessed joints need raking out, the surface of the joint is normally polished up to maximise the effectiveness of the joint. This can be achieved by using a square jointing tool. This type of joint does not shed water.  Recessed joints are joints where the surface is a specific depth below the surface area of the brick. This is achieved by raking or scraping out the joint material.

Struck or Weathered Joint

A Struck or Weathered Joint is formed using a pointing trowel. This type of joint has a surface which slopes from the top to the bottom of the brick, making any water run off the surface joint. Vertical joints can have the joints sloping left or right but must be consistent throughout the wall surface.
