Dear PoP – Repointing an end unit townhouse?


Photo by PoPville flickr user m hoek

“Dear PoP,

I am hoping for the wisdom of PoP-ville here.

I think it must be time to repoint my house: the roof flashing is blowing off because — apparently — the mortar is too soft to nail anything to. Roughly how much should it cost to get an end-unit brick Victorian DC townhouse repointed, and does anyone have any suggestions about people to hire (or to avoid) for such an undertaking? In the meantime, the roofer is going to attach new flashing to the bricks themselves…

Thanks as always!”

Anyone have this done before? Any guesses of cost?
