If you're renovating a house, getting a repointing cost for your brick or stonework may well be included on your list of jobs - particularly if it's a large job that needs tackling by the professionals.

Although pointing isn't what holds the bricks or stones fully in place and instead refers to the mortar that sits in between the joints of your bricks or stonework, it's essential for filling the open joint created during the process of laying.
