Benefits of Lime Pointing
Lime pointing is a popular method of weatherproofing and protecting masonry. It has been used for centuries to keep homes and buildings in good condition. Lime pointing is a mixture of lime, sand, and water that is applied to the surface of masonry. The lime in the mixture acts as a binding agent, holding the sand and water together. The sand provides a rough surface for the lime to grip onto, and the water helps to form a seal between the bricks or stones.
It prevents moisture from seeping into the cracks and crevices of bricks or stones. This can help to prevent damage caused by freezing temperatures or rain. Lime pointing can also help to insulate a building, keeping it cooler in summer and warmer in winter. It can last for many years if it is properly applied and maintained. Lime pointing is also low maintenance – it does not need to be regularly repainted or replaced like other methods of weatherproofing.
