Repointing involves renewing the external part of mortar joints in brick or stone masonry, which helps maintain the structural integrity of the wall. This calculator will help you estimate the total cost for repointing based on wall area, material costs, and labor.

## How to Use?

1. Enter the area of the wall to be repointed in square feet.

2. Provide the cost per square foot for materials.

3. Input the hourly labor cost and estimated hours of labor required for the job.

4. Click 'Calculate Total Repointing Cost' to view the estimated overall cost.

### Example Calculation

If your wall area is 200 sq ft, cost per square foot is $15, labor cost is $50/hour, and the job takes 10 hours, the total cost would be:

**Total Cost = (Wall Area * Cost per Square Foot) + (Labor Cost * Hours Required) = (200 * 15) + (50 * 10) = $3,500**

### Factors That Affect Repointing Costs

- Wall Area: The larger the area, the higher the cost.
- Materials: The type and quality of mortar used affect the price per square foot.
- Labor: The hourly rate and time needed to complete the project.
