Pointing plays a very crucial role in a structure. It protects the masonry unit (brick, block, stone) and the soundness of the structure as a whole. If an inappropriate mortar is used for the particular masonry unit, it will damage the entire structure. Different appearance in pointing detail (ribbon, weathered, grapevine) not only add to cosmetic appearance, but have an important role in wicking and washing water away from the masonry structures.
