Removal of old mortar between joints is done carefully to avoid damage to masonry and brickwork. On very old buildings with soft materials, such as under-fired brick, removal by hand is often the most effective to avoid damage. New mortar can be designed to match the colour and texture of existing mortar to avoid visual aberrations.

The repointing process begins by removing damaged pointing to a depth equal to or slightly more than the width of the joint, or to the point where sound mortar is reached. Depths greater than 2-1/2" or 4 cm would be filled in several passes, allowing the mortar to cure for at least 24 hours.
