Tuckpointing is a technique that has been used for centuries to repair and restore brick or stone masonry. Tuckpointing can be done with mortar, grout, cement, lime putty, or other materials. Tuck pointers may also be known as “masons” because we use tucks (or points) of material in the spaces between bricks where there are voids from missing or lose ones. Tuckpoints help fill these gaps and stop moisture seeping into the wall which could lead to structural damage over time. Tucking should only be carried out by skilled professionals who know how much force is required without damaging the surrounding area; it’s not an easy task!
Tuckpointing is the solution for you!
Tuckpointing is the solution for you! Tuckpointing services include brick and stone repair, mortar repairs, installation of new bricks or stones to match existing ones. Tuckpointing can be used on a wide range of masonry surfaces including sidewalks, foundations, chimneys, and fireplaces; we’ve even done it after hurricanes like Sandy and Katrina. Tuck pointers use either putty that matches the original color or cement-based grout to fill in cracks between joints (tucks). Tucks are then chiseled smooth with a tucking tool before being sanded down.
Tuckpointing will make your home look new again.
Tuckpointing is the process of repairing and restoring brick, stone, or concrete masonry surfaces. Tuckpointing can make your home look new again by fixing any cracks in mortar joints and replacing missing bricks with matching stones. This will help preserve the integrity and character of your historic building while maintaining its original design details. Tuckpointing not only restores value to a property but also provides protection from water damage that could further deteriorate your surface even more quickly than before. Tuckpointing is one of the most important aspects when it comes to maintaining a historic home. Tuckpointing should be done by an experienced masonry contractor, such as DC’s Finest Masonry Contractor.
