Masonry wall assemblies rely on redundant wall assemblies to perform at their peak. The thought is that this redundancy gives you some protection from breaches/failures at the outer wall assembly. This is somewhat true if the wall assembly was constructed as designed. In today’s fast paced construction market we find this does not happen as often as we would like. This means that repointing a structure and keeping it pointed is critical. Repointing is the process of removing damaged/failing mortar from masonry joints and placing with new mortar to prevent water entry into the wall assembly.
