repointing OR resurfacing


Explanation:
FIELD: Masonry Restoration
"Repointage" (sic) is a construction technique.

En fait, le mot français correct est :
"rejointoiement" OU "rejointoyage".

In some contexts, scraping OR re-dressing could apply.

Définition française :
Jointoiement exécuté ultérieurement sur une maçonnerie ancienne ou mal jointoyée.

...et le mot anglais? repointing.

On dirait que votre texte français est une mauvaise traduction d'un texte anglais.

VOIR dans un texte canadien contaminé par l'anglais :
... le repointage [...] consiste à enlever le mortier jusqu'à une épaisseur d'environ ½ pouce à partir des joints et à le remplacer avec du mortier frais et bien tassé dans l'ouverture de sorte qu'il adhère bien aux éléments et au premier mortier.

ENGLISH DEFINITION
Operation to effect or restore a facing by removal of a thin layer of stone.
