Pointing house all walls

How do I measure my house for re-pointing, do you measure all walls then deduct doors and windows.

Typically a tradesman will price a house for re pointing on a m2 rate, so yes you are right.
Work the area of the wall out in metres (height times the length) then just deduct the openings if necessary which will give you the area you require to be repointed
Hope this helps

We normally measure the whole area then deduct from from the total measurement anything that is not to be pointed.I hope this helps.

Hi there
Yes you can get a rough idea of the work sq m but
when pricing work by sq m is not enough because you might have fancy moulded bricks, arches, or dog toothing which takes a lot of time, also theres the reveals and window fillet, all of this you would miss in your quote by just measuring by the sq m.
Hope it helps

Yes that’s correct all you have to do is measure the wall its self and Deduct any openings. My self I quote per day/days that the job will take not per square metre.but either way will give yourself a rough guide price.
