What is pointing a gable end and why is it important?


Pointing is the process of repairing or renewing the mortar joints between bricks or stones. It is important to maintain the pointing of your walls, especially the gable ends, which are the triangular sections of wall at the end of a pitched roof. Gable ends are exposed to the elements and can suffer from weathering, cracking, erosion or damage over time. If left untreated, this can lead to water ingress, dampness, mould growth, structural instability and reduced energy efficiency.


What can happen if you don't deal with gable end damage?

Ignoring gable end damage can have serious consequences for your property and your health. Some of the potential risks are:


  • Water damage: Water can seep through the cracks and gaps in the mortar joints and cause damage to the interior walls, ceilings, floors and furnishings. This can also lead to rotting of the wooden structures, such as roof timbers or floor joists.

  • Dampness and mould: Dampness can create a favourable environment for mould growth, which can affect the air quality and cause respiratory problems, allergies and asthma. Mould can also stain and damage the surfaces it grows on.

  • Structural problems: Cracked or loose bricks or stones can compromise the integrity of the wall and make it unstable or unsafe. This can also affect the appearance and value of your property.

  • Heat loss: Damaged pointing can reduce the insulation and thermal performance of your walls, making your home colder and less comfortable. This can also increase your energy bills and carbon footprint.
