Which are various types of pointing according to designs?

 
Various types of pointing according to designs are following.
1. Flush Pointing:
  • Mortar is placed and pressed by trowel in the joints till the surface becomes flashy with rest of the wall.
  • It is not an ornamental pointing.
  • It is done to protect from the water.
  • It is also used for internal surface where required.
  • 2. Deep Variety(Weathered and Struck) Pointing:
  • Mortar is filled in the joint flush with the masonry by a pointing trowel and upper portion of the joint is pressed with a proper pointing tool.
  • Vertical joints are struck in the same way with a similar tools having a triangular edge.
  • Since the mortar becomes dense on compression. So this pointing makes good joints.
  • In case of  horizontal joints the water runs off the joints easily and is not allowed to enter the joints
  • 3.Raised Pointing:
  • The joints are defined by ridge raised 3 mm from the face of the wall having width above 10 mm.
  • It is a an ornamental type of pointing,  used on stone walls generally.
