When finishing is carried out while the mortar is still fresh it is termed ‘jointing’. When the mortar is allowed to stiffen and some is then removed and replaced with fresh mortar (sometimes coloured) before finishing, or when the joint is incompletely filled initially, the process is referred to as ‘pointing’. Structurally, jointing is preferable to pointing because it leaves the bedding mortar undisturbed. Mortar used for pointing should have mix proportions and hardened mechanical properties similar to those used in the original bedding mortar and not of a stronger designation or mix.
